Arthur Lawton, Mysteries of Ancient Man

This essay, often mentioned but seldom seen, was originally submitted to the Straight Track Club postal folio in 1939. It is here republished from a photocopied typescript. While the essay is best known for linking ley-hunting with dowsing, it also includes a discussion on the metrology of ancient sites.

The present copyright owner, if any, is not known.
