It is the case however, that some ley-lines have been identified along which ancient paths or roads follow or run alongsideand it is perhaps worth first considering the origin of these ancient tracks, and their connection with ley-lines. Many of the 'mark stones', and 'ancient tracks' he refers to have since disappeared, a situation which is considerably unhelpful to serious research.

Inand without any apparent knowledge of Alfred Watkins work on 'ley-lines', or his similar conclusions over associations with water and salt, Xavier Guichard had a book printed at his own expense called Eleusis Alesia complete with maps.

His final results revealed over sites in France alone, which appear to have been placed in a geodetic system extending across Europe, and centred on a remote ancient site called Alaise, near Besancon in southern France.

It by no means follows that all megalithic sites were placed on ley-lines. He suggested that Europe had been divided into two 'roses-des-vents' compass cards such as those used by Greek geographers : one of 24 lines that divided the horizon into equal segments; and one of four lines that marked the meridian and the equinox, and the solstices.

The same observation was made in other parts of Europe by the Romans themselves, who in their conquest of the Etruscans, noted standing stones set in linear patterns over the entire countryside of Tuscany. By learning how to use the Chinese geomancers compass in conjunction with his British army compass, Major Menzies became very proficient in locating earth energy alignments ley-linesand also sources of noxious energy which were creating areas of geopathic stress and ill health.

Similarly to Guichard aboveWatkins believed that the lines were associated with former 'Trade routes' for important commodities such as water and salt.Advertisement: Mapping Ancient Landscapes in Northamptonshire 47 Cropmarks 48 Book of interest?
