Some people think that England is connected by mysterious, unseen “energy lines.” Ley lines? Or perhaps the home of mythologists and those who believe in fairies?

The six-day journey to Stonehenge by the artist and performer bones tan jones began in Silvertown, a neighborhood in the London borough of Newham. The artist’s journey began with research into ancient ley lines, a theory that is described by author Simon Ingrams as “an implied network of impressionistic significance… said by believers to link or align ancient monuments, notable landscape features, and settlements across the world on a series of invisible energy pathways.” Churches, standing stones, crossroads, and other landmarks seemed to fall into perfect alignment within a grid of straight lines that shone like luminous wires. Three years after World War One ended, a councilman from rural Herefordshire in the UK named Alfred Watkins first proposed the term “ley lines.” According to Watkins’ theory, the ley lines originated as a result of pre-Roman Britons, who were more resilient than modern Britons and bravely walked over rivers and up hills to reach their destinations. This happened when the English landscape was heavily covered in trees. Visible tracks like torches were set in key spots to align monuments like mounds and moats, stone circles, and other features throughout the area.

Despite the fact that tan jones’ adventure is over, the journey is still in progress. It continues to connect its lines between myth and history, the past and the present, and the human and the superhuman.
