Description - The Old Straight Track by Alfred Watkins

This study of the ancient tracks or leys that criss-cross the British Isles, a system which was old when the Romans first came to Britain. Alfred Watkins noticed that ancient monuments built on pagan sites seemed to fall into straight lines. His investigations having convinced him that Britain is covered with a network of tracks and that these are aligned with the paths of the planets, Watkins attempts to fathom the mystery behind them.
