Read full description of the books:Across much of the earth's surface are ancient earthworks and stone monuments built for an unknown purpose. Their shared features suggest that they were originally part of a world wide system; and John Michell argues that they served the elemental science of the archaic civilization which Plato referred to as Atlantis. In this connection the most significant modern discovery is that of 'leys', the mysterious network of straight lines which link the ancient places of Britain and have their counterparts in China, Australia, South America and widely elsewhere.
Read information about the authorJohn Frederick Carden Michell was an English writer whose key sources of inspiration were Plato and Charles Fort. His 1969 volume The View Over Atlantis has been described as probably the most influential book in the history of the hippy/underground movement and one that had far-reaching effects on the study of strange phenomena: it "put ley lines on the map, re-enchanted the British landscape and made Glastonbury the capital of the New Age."
In some 40-odd titles over five decades he examined, often in pioneering style, such topics as sacred geometry, earth mysteries, geomancy, gematria, archaeoastronomy, metrology, euphonics, simulacra and sacred sites, as well as Fortean phenomena. An abiding preoccupation was the Shakespeare authorship question. His Who Wrote Shakespeare? (1996) was reckoned by The Washington Post "the best overview yet of the authorship question."
