Terry Welbourn is a writer and graphic designer. He recently collaborated with author Simon Brighton on Echoes of the Goddess: A Quest for the Sacred Feminine in the British Landscape (Ian Allen, 2010). His article T. C. Lethbridge: The Buried Gods of Gogmagog was published in the May/June edition of British Archaeology. Terry has also been invited to contribute a Lethbridge-related article to an anthology celebrating Colin Wilson's 80th year in 2011.

Terry was born in Grantham, Lincolnshire in 1958. From 1975-1979 he studied graphic design at Lincolnshire College of Art and in 1985 took up the post of Graphic Designer at North Lincolnshire Health Authority; later he became manager of the Health Promotion Resource Centre, and obtained a Post-Graduate Certificate in Managing Health Services. After the closure of the Health Promotion Unit the following year, he set up his own business, Tekh Ltd. and continued to supply local health services with graphic design support.

In 1998, Terry chanced upon the stone circle of Avebury; it was an encounter that was to ignite a life-long fascination with prehistoric culture. As a result of his newfound interest, he embarked upon a journey around the prehistoric sites of Britain and Ireland and has, to date, visited over 1,000 monuments. As result of this endeavour, he accumulated an intrinsic knowledge of the megalithic culture and subsequently, has built up a unique assemblage photographs and accompanying notes that document this ongoing vocation. As a consequence of his self-employed status, Terry was been able to juggle his graphic design commitments alongside his literary ambitions and has subsequently embarked on a number of writing assignments. One in particular A Mind Bridge to the Ancient is a work in progress project that studies the gulf that has occurred between Neolithic culture and the present day. As well as being a philosophical travelogue, it also provides a unique snapshot in time of our prehistoric heritage.

In 1996, he became acquainted with the musician and author Julian Cope, and as a consequence of this liaison, Terry contributed photographs and notes to Cope's own best-selling study of prehistoric Britain, The Modern Antiquarian (Thorsons, 1998). Discovering that he and Cope shared a mutual appreciation of the Cambridge archaeologist and dowser T. C. Lethbridge, a musical collective, known as 'The Sons of T. C. Lethbridge' was established. The collaboration resulted in the release of A Giant, a two-CD box set featuring rock music inspired by Lethbridge, in November 2003. The 36-page accompanying booklet contained Terry's anthological review of each of Lethbridge's published works. The recordings also feature spoken word contributions from the writer Colin Wilson. In November 2003, Terry launched an associated website: www.tc-lethbridge.com. The site is updated monthly with essays, photographs, news and guest contributions and during March 2007, the website was averaging over 160 visits each day. This attraction demonstrates a growing interest in Lethbridge and his associated studies.

As a result of his anthological review of the works of T. C. Lethbridge, Terry began further research into the life and times of the one-time Keeper of Anglo-Saxon Antiquities at the University Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Cambridge. As a result of this study, he has recently completed writing a formal biography entitled T. C. Lethbridge: The Man Who Saw the Future.

In 2005, Terry, as part of The ARC Collective, produced and recorded Mayday! Mayday! The Stan Gooch EP, a CD digi-pac dedicated to, and featuring the writer Stan Gooch. The recording once again features the voice of Colin Wilson set over ambient musings.

After 32 years of living in Lincoln, Terry has recently moved back to his home town of Grantham, Lincolnshire. Here he continues to pursue his many writing projects and design work.
