Alleged alignments of ancient sites or holy places are Ley Lines and include stone circles, standing stones, cairns, and churches. Alfred Watkins jumpstarted the interest in ley lines after he noticed on a map, that a large number of ancient landmarks could be linked via straight lines. Today, Ley lines have been adopted New Age occultists as energy power sources, attracting locals and UFOs with their drowsing rods.
Ley lines are hypothetical alignments of a number of places of geographical interest, such as ancient monuments and megaliths. Their existence was suggested in 1921 by the amateur archaeologist Alfred Watkins, in his book The Old Straight Track: “Monuments exist marking grand geometrical lines which cover the whole of Western Europe”.
The causes of these alignments are disputed, and there are several major areas of interpretation:
-Archaeological: Ley lines can be the product of ancient surveying, property markings, or commonly traveled pathways.
-Cultural: Many cultures use straight lines across the landscape.
-New Age: Ley lines and their intersection points are believed by David Cowan to resonate a special psychic or mystical energy.
-Skeptical: Ley lines were not planned or made by ancient cultures and are readily explained without resorting to extraordinary or pseudoscientific ideas.
