EARTH MYSTERIES

Earth Mysteries, a term coined in the early 1970s, is today used to describe a multi-disciplined or 'holistic' approach to the study of ancient sites and landscapes. It tends to fall largely outside the accepted range of mainstream research and is generally regarded with suspicion by academics. This site is intended to serve as an introduction to the various aspects of Earth Mysteries as a unique field of study.
