By moving the ruler in a circle he could find when multiples sites lined up on a straight line, normally pointing towards another sacred spot. Seller has stated it will dispatch the item within 1 working day upon receipt of cleared payment - opens in a new window or tab .

It was only in the 1980s that professional archaeologists in Britain began to engage with the ley hunting movement. Fortunately, as a result of a severe outbreak of Cholera in Soho, which chemist John Snow recorded in detail, he and Whitehead were able to show that infection was transmitted by water contaiminated by sewage, rather than gases. Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. In essence, the practice was a continuation of the pagan green man, whose head spewing forth vegetation is found carved more often throughout English churches than statues of the Virgin Mary. In the mid-1970s, Michell then published a detailed case study of the West Penwith district of Cornwall, laying out what he believed to be the ley lines in the area.In a similar way, I believe there are trees in North America that were bent over at 90 degrees at about head height as saplings, so that they would grow that way and serve as pointers for indigenous people in the past.

The symbolism behind the decapitated head was simple: the head contained the soul and the soul was a particle of God, a hologram of the ultimate Creative Force, therefore to add the head of a great leader or religious person to a mound served to accentuate the energy of place, for the sacred mound was itself the head of the body of the land, the point where the Earth’s magnetic forces congregate. Blame ex-RAF pilot Tony Wedd who, in his leaflet Skyways and Landmarks (1961), suggested that ley lines were laid down by prehistoric societies to connect with alien spacecraft. As David Newnham wrote in 2000: "Throughout the 60s and 70s, ley-line theory was to mutate and bifurcate, to bend with every passing fad, so that it frequently seemed as though its only purpose was to highlight the failings of our own times.Since then, a theory has developed that ley lines are a power grid for the forces of creation and that is why so many churches and ancient sites of spiritual significance, such as holy wells and megaliths, lie along them. You will learn the tales of the witches of London, see the homes of secret societies and walk the streets that birthed London’s New Age Movement. Their existence, Watkins theorised, was the legacy of pre-Roman inhabitants of Britain who worked out, quite sensibly – during a time when the English landscape was dense with forest – that the shortest distance between two points was a straight line and, being tougher than modern Britons, would tramp bravely through rivers and up hills to get to their destinations. But does this mean anything more than London being built around the need for farms with water and sunlight? Archaeologists and scientists regard ley lines as an example of pseudoarchaeology and pseudoscience.

Now a new generation, including bones tan jones, are harking back to myth to explain the world around them; this time, in the context of a planet on the brink of collapse and a natural world, mourned as it disappears. For six days, tan jones moved through urban and rural landscapes, on the way encountering several holloways – roads or tracks that are significantly lower than the land on either side, and not formed by recent engineering – and The Harrow Way, said to be the oldest road in Britain.Crawford filed these letters under a section of his archive titled "Crankeries" and was annoyed that educated people believed such ideas when they were demonstrably incorrect. As Hutton observed, a belief in "ancient earth energies have passed so far into the religious experience of the 'New Age' counter-culture of Europe and America that it is unlikely that any tests of evidence would bring about an end to belief in them.

He proposed the existence of a network of completely straight roads that cut through a range of prehistoric, Roman, and medieval structures. Throughout the tour you will learn about the sacred ley lines running under the city and how they have shaped it’s story. The other approach was to further engage archaeologists by seeking out new data and arguments to bolster their beliefs in ley lines. The Sanctuary and the circle were later merged, and in recent historical times it became the Christian Sanctuary of the Collegiate Church of St.By the 1990s, British archaeology had become more open to ideas about language and cognition, topics that Earth Mysteries enthusiasts had long been interested in. Considering that the flow of water has been regularly altered for at least 2000yrs, it would be interesting to see where the "Leys" originally lay. Following sustained archaeological criticism, the ley hunter community dissipated in the 1990s, with several of its key proponents abandoning the idea and moving into the study of landscape archaeology and folkloristics.
