Review

." . . no library should be without."

." . . no library should be without."--EarthRites.org, May 2011

." . . no library should be without." --EarthRites.org, May 2011

"This is by no means a simple read. It is complex, but ultimately fascinating. It will please and intrigue all who are interested in earth mysteries, ley lines, sacred geometry, geomancy, gematria, sacred sites, and archaeoastronomy. I was surprised by the complexity of the evidence from antiquity that survives to this day. . . . It is a fine memorial to the pioneering and prolific writer John Michell."

"This reprint of John Michell's modern classic of 1994 is timely in that it reminds us of the source of some of the ageless principles that have guided humanity's progress. . . . spellbinding book by a pioneering researcher of sacred landscapes."

From the Back Cover

ANCIENT MYSTERIES / NEW SCIENCE Symbols of ritual centers are among the most persistent elements of myth and belief between cultures widely separated in time and space. Every tribe and state had its "generation center," a sacred area within its heartland where its legendary founders gave birth to its people and established their laws. Within the inner sanctum of the sanctuary was an altar or pillar, the omphalos or navel stone, that marked the midpoint of the home territory and represented the world-pole around which everything revolved. It was the focus of a perpetual cycle of rituals and festivals that passed with the seasons throughout the country and held its people under the spell of a golden age. In this book John Michell reveals the precise methods by which the ancients located the appropriate centers and adopted them as sanctuaries. The same principles of ritual geography in the siting of Akhenaten's capital in Egypt and Megalopolis in classical Greece apply also to the traditional centers of small territories and islands. The rediscovery of these sites--such as the spot at the center of Ireland where the Celtic High Kings were installed--sheds new light on the ritualized order of prehistoric societies and the sacred, scientific code on which they were founded. These revelations from the distant past are of great significance in present times, for in them are the secrets of harmony on every scale, from the personal to the universal. Restoring the sacred center to its former place of prominence offers the possibility of a renaissance of human culture, ideally centered upon the image of a perfectly ordered Cosmos. JOHN MICHELL, educated at Eton and Cambridge, is the pioneer researcher and specialist in the field of ancient, traditional science. He is the author of more than 25 books that have profoundly influenced modern thinking, including The Dimensions of Paradise, The New View over Atlantis, and Secrets of the Stones. He lives in London.
