Alfred Watkins’s Cuttings Book

This is a unique book of press cuttings compiled by Alfred Watkins from 1922 to early 1925. He started it in order to collect reviews of his first ley book Early British Trackways, which was published in March 1922. When these dried up he continued with cuttings on archaeology, place names, and the like, related to his ley theory. There are also a few typed or handwritten items such as letters.

The cuttings book can now be viewed on this website. Each cutting can be read as a text file, or the pages can be viewed as scanned images.
