Fionn Rawnsley, latest book:

http://thestonehengezodiac.com

“Imagine that old Stonehenge has been sitting there out on Salisbury plain for thousands and thousands of years, if it could speak, what stories would it tell us, would they be mutterings in an unknown tongue and what would it tell us of the spiritual world of the ancients?”

Fionn Rawnsley is a researcher who has found that the henge is more ancient than currently believed and is part of a vast astrological scheme, which includes Avebury too. One that is tied into the shifting skys forever. Beyond this he has decoded what he believes to be a reality that Stonehenge is a mystic gateway of the immortals and is still as functional as it ever was.

Earth Rites: Fertility Practices in Pre-industrial Britain  – Janet and Colin Bord 

Reviewed in issue 9, 2013, of the Newsletter of the Network of Ley Hunters. 

The wealth of ancient relics around us, the evidence of country customs and the folklore passed on through the generations all go to show how our forefathers passionately believed there were powerful energy forces emanating from the earth and that we are all intrinsically linked to those forces. Janet and Colin Bord reveal how our ancestors learnt to channel the earth’s energies to the good of the entire planet – and call for an urgent return to a time of harmony between man and earth.

Sacred Places: 50 Sites of Religious Pilgrimage  – Philip Carr-Gomm 

Journeys to sacred places or shrines undertaken as acts of religious veneration or penance have been a feature of religious observance from the earliest times. Ancient religions had holy sites, temples and groves, such as Delphi and Dodona in Greece. Philip Carr-Gomm tells the stories of 50 sacred sites across all five continents, including sites venerated by all of the world’s major religions.

Tilley a new approach to landscape perception. This book is an extended photographic essay about topographic features of the landscape. It integrates philosophical approaches to landscape perception with anthropological studies of the significance of the landscape in small-scale societies. This perspective is used to examine the relationship between prehistoric sites and their topographic settings.

An Archaeology of Natural Places  – Richard Bradley 

This volume explores why natural places such as caves, mountains, springs and rivers assumed a sacred character in European prehistory, and how the evidence for this can be analysed in the field. It shows how established research on votive deposits, rock art and production sites can contribute to a more imaginative approach to the prehistoric landscape, and can even shed light on the origins of monumental architecture. The discussion is illustrated through a wide range of European examples, and three extended case studies.

Stonehenge Complete  – Christopher Chippindale 

This newly revised and enlarged fourth edition of Christopher Chippindales prize-winning classic account brings the story of Stonehenge right up to date. It describes in two new chapters the startling ideas and insights of the latest field research. In a radical reinterpretation, Stonehenge with its cold rocks is seen as the place of the dead, and another site over the horizon as the place of the living, built in wood, and complete with houses and paved ways. In another theory, Stonehenge is a place of healing. Alongside the quest to understand Stonehenge are the taxing practicalities of caring for a 4,000 years old site that was never designed to cope with a million visitors a year, and how to preserve the monument for millennia to come. 

Powerpoints: Secret Rulers and Hidden Forces in the Landscape  – Robin Heath 

Full review in issue 8, 2013, of the Newsletter of the Network of Ley Hunters. 

This book from Robin Heath injects the controversial subject of alignments (leys) back into focus and demonstrates how these enigmatic features still influence the siting of important cultural and industrial powerpoints today. Many original photographs and graphics make the book simple to read yet profoundly disturbing in its implications for modern culture. A reality shift!

Full review in issue 8, 2013, of the Newsletter of the Network of Ley Hunters. 

Two leading researchers into ancient wisdom demonstrate that the earth’s dimensions were accurately known prior to 3000 BC. These astonishing findings include a system of surveying and measure based on simple numerical and geometrical rules documents that remnants of this science still existed in medieval times when it became lost.

Spirit Chaser: The Quest for Bega  – Alex Langstone 

This is the true story of a psychic adventure that turned into an uplifting spiritual pilgrimage. In June 1989, the author began following a series of psychic messages and significant synchronicity that led him to discover the enigmatic mystery of St Bega, the sacredness of the British landscape and ultimately to experience the divine reality of the Celtic tradition of mysticism, miracles and magic. Spirit Chaser takes us on a magnificent journey, a journey into the twilight past of seventh century Britain and Ireland. A journey into the heart of a modern day quest for the mystery that is the Sancta Bega; the sacred ring at the mystical centre of the British Isles. 

Alex Langstone led a field trip to some of the places mentioned in this book as part of our Moot in Cumbria 7 – 12 September 2013. 

The History of the Kings of Britain  – Geoffrey of Monmouth (Author), Lewis Thorpe (Translator, Introduction) 

Completed in 1136, The History of the Kings of Britain traces the story of the realm from its supposed foundation by Brutus to the coming of the Saxons some two thousand years later. Vividly portraying legendary and semi-legendary figures such as Lear, Cymbeline, Merlin the magician and the most famous of all British heroes, King Arthur, it is as much myth as it is history and its veracity was questioned by other medieval writers. But Geoffrey of Monmouth’s powerful evocation of illustrious men and deeds captured the imagination of subsequent generations, and his influence can be traced through the works of Malory, Shakespeare, Dryden and Tennyson.

The Spirit Paths of Wales  – Laurence Main 

Laurence Main’s knowledge of Welsh lore and legend is the basis for these 20 walks, following spirit paths (or leys). Standing stones and holy sites abound; Welsh literature and history spring from every page. Spirit paths, leys or ley lines are new concepts to many people who have come to enjoy walking in the countryside. They form part of the ancestral memory of being the children of Mother Earth which makes so many town-dwellers yearn for the simple freedom of rambling along ancient paths. This vital contact with the living landscape is a spiritual exercise. What is meant by a ley, or spirit path, is very much open to individual interpretation. Significantly, it is a straight path or track that is identified in one’s subconscious and is consequently traced by a process of dowsing and connecting sight lines. The paths often synchronise with standing stones, holy wells and other sacred sites, suggesting a divine or mystical significance. “This book has a selection of spirit paths (by my reckoning) for you to sample. It is far from being comprehensive. I’ve just dipped into a vast ocean. I hope I haven’t imposed my dowsed lines on the land. I have tried to listen to it. If I may venture a belief, it is that this is a living land and our acknowledgement of its spirit paths may lead us to love it.” – Laurence Main.
