John Michell’s classic study is an unrivalled introduction to megalithic science, earth mysteries and the inner meaning of number and measure. The author contributes to an impressive body of evidence and argument to support the theory that at one time, many thousands of years ago, there was a worldwide, highly sophisticated civilisation that Plato referred to as Atlantis. He reveals that the various ancient stone monuments and earthworks found about the globe are not randomly strewn, but are a well-executed system of psychic centres connected worldwide and used by the people of Atlantis. Michell also examines the significant modern discovery of ‘leys’, the mysterious network of straight lines that links the ancient places around the world. He carefully and thoroughly documents the research that points to these ancient sites as places of high magic, the rediscovery of which could revolutionize our understanding of our planet.
