Some people believe that strange, invisible “energy lines” connect England. Ley lines? Or maybe the home of those who believe in fairies?

The artist and performer bones tan jones started his six-day journey to Stonehenge from the Silvertown neighborhood of the London town of Newham. Their quest began to investigate historic ley lines. Author Simon Ingrams describes them as “invisible energy pathways” that connect ancient monuments, landscapes, and settlements around the world. Three years after World War One ended, Herefordshire councilman Alfred Watkins first used the term “ley lines.” Based on Watkins’ theory, the ley lines originated from pre-Roman Britons who bravely walked over rivers and up hills to reach their destinations. This happened when the English countryside was heavily covered in trees. To align monuments like mounds and moats, stone circles, and other features around the landscape, visible tracks like torches were placed in strategic locations.

Tan jones’ adventure ended, but the journey is still in progress. It continues to connect its lines between fantasy and history, the past and the present, and the human and the superhuman.
