She began to research the person that was buried within the sanctity of the mound and discovered the person was a woman. Tracking the skull down to one of Britain’s most prestigious universities, Maria noted she had a long elongated skull and she was probably a high queen or high priestess of Neolithic Stonehenge. Were these the people that first laid out the ley system of the British Isles? The forgotten history of her long-lost civilisation unfolds with more twists and turns than an Agatha Christie novel but, as we know, fact is often far stranger than fiction …

Thinking of joining Devon Dowsers?

Dowsing is a means of searching, not using our normal senses, and can be done on site as well as remotely (e.g. map and information dowsing). It is an ethical activity used for the greater good. Devon Dowsers welcomes those who have a fascination for this ancient art, and who wish to share their experiences with other open-minded members.

We always welcome new members, so please see our current programme  and come to a meeting to check us out. To learn more,  get in touch through our contact form. We’d love to hear from you.

23 & 24 June 2018

South Zeal, Devon

We can look back to last June’s sunshine and reflect on the success of DFest, the first South West Dowsing Festival. Over 100 people attended and used the evaluation form to share how much they had enjoyed the weekend. It was a chance to dowse at some of Dartmoor’s iconic sites, to listen to engaging speakers, and to attend fascinating Dowsing Workshops.

A digital souvenir report is available HERE. We hope this report will provide you with enjoyable memories and provide inspiration for your dowsing throughout the months ahead.
