Wiltshire is surely the epicentre of oddities. From inexplicable crop circles to mysterious prehistoric sites, this quintessential slice of unspoiled Britain is one of the most baffling and interesting places on the planet.

Why do weird and wonderful patterns suddenly appear in the corn fields of our countryside? 2018 showed some very impressive formations and the summer of 2019 is expected to be even better. Are they simply an elaborate hoax or are they caused by U.F.O s, earth energies or plasma vortexes?

“Explore thousands of years of mystic, historic happenings and ye olde English eccentricity”

Whoever or whatever causes them they are striking features and are well worth checking out. Wiltshire is well known for its mysterious crop circles and much mystery still remains as to why they occur and the meanings behind their complex formations. Crop circles in Wiltshire often occur around the heart of the county in and around Stonehenge and Avebury, usually first appearing in April and continuing into the summer month – dozens of geometric symbols, mandalas and beautiful patterns appear in the farmers growing crop fields each and every year.

“Our exclusive crop circle tours have been featured on Sky TV, The Times and Telegraph newspapers”

This magical landscape includes not only the majority of crop circles, but also some of England’s most remarkable ancient sacred sites. You will visit them with a an expert / entertaing guide who will share their detailed knowledge of this area.

We are now taking bookings for our exclusive crop circle tours for the summer of 2019.  Small groups so book early.  We can also arrange extra dates for private groups, ideal families and small groups.  Tours depart from London, Salisbury and Bath

The trance DJ, who has spent his summer working in Ibiza, performed his set at the World Heritage Site on Thursday – a closely guarded secret.

Just 50 people were allowed to attend the event which happened as the sun went down.

“I’m very lucky to get asked to perform and do a live show to sunset,” Oakenfold told the BBC.

Tests show 5,000-year-old remains found at the world heritage site came from more than 100 miles away in west Wales

A new study published in the journal Scientific Reports looked at a number of ancient remains buried at the historic site more some 5,000 to 4,400 years ago.

SOLSTICE morning marked both the longest day of the year and the release of new book Megalith: Studies in Stone that claims to reveal secret behind the mystery of the cosmology surrounding stone circle constructions like Avebury.

Megalith is the first global study into the stones at both Avebury and Stonehenge and megalthhas been penned by stone circle experts including Robin Heath, that focusses on the Wiltshire circles.

Why does this research matter?

Archaeologists try to study past people who have very different cultural backgrounds from themselves. Certain perceptual theories suggest that this will cause us to see landscapes differently than the people we study, whilst others state that this is not an issue. If we see landscapes differently, then how we interpret them may not accurately reflect the past.
