Once inside the 4000-5000 year old circle, however, the air mysteriously calmed. John Grieve, our guide, pointed out the acoustics of the site. Speakers positioned before what he gruesomely identified as the "defleshing table" would have their voices amplified impressively.
John brought a pair of dowsing rods and each of us stepped into the circle holding them. As we crossed the imaginary line between the stones, the dowsing rods came together. Skeptic though I am, I have to admit that, when I crossed the line with my eyes closed, the rods came together and then apart in my hands. Spooky!
