Rare Iron Age fortification at Arbury Banks, Northants. Ploughing has destroyed half the protective covering of medieval ridge and furrow and is damaging the underlying fortification. Copyright: EH |
|Went to this site today , with my dowsing hat on, it is sweltering hot.
As you enter the field from the road, there are two round hillocks, these dowse as round barrows, with a crossing point of many lines in the centre of them, but the really interesting piece is in the middle of the field, this dowses exactly the same as a long barrow, it is too complex to fully explain this, and it is my opinion, but there are certain detectable occurances that I only find where a long barrow is, and this happens here.
I can also follow the flow of plasma around two roughly circuler embankments , these have been altered from farming , but are still operating in the method of similer embankments, that are found around such sites, the cattle in the field were most interested in me dowsing, nice to have such an apreciative audience.
This site is along an alignment that links to the rollright stones.

|Interesting. How do you dowse with a hat?|
|The hat was to keep the sun off,It is just a saying , wearing a hat, I could also have my tax mans hat on etc.
I dowse with two rods in my hands, today there was no wind, so I was able to use very sensitive rods made from carbon fibre.
I will produce a drawing of what I detect at such as this site, many will not really be interested, but I will show the positions and relevance of the detectable lines, just in case some one understands.
If you go to this site, I would recommend that you go around to the church in chipping warden, not actually to the church, but to the mini pyramid that is outside the church, it was the base of a market cross, thatthen had a cross sited upon it, this has now gone, and now empty coke bottles litter it, it is quite impressive, and links directly to the rollright stones, there is evidence of a capped off well at the side of this pyramid, I can easily detect these.
