Dowsing At Tankerness House Museum….

I very much want to see the Ness of Brodgar exhibition at Tankerness House… http://www.spanglefish.com/berniesblog/blog.asp?blogid=16186 , but decided to wait until there’s less people in Kirkwall – maybe September.  

Then, I read this on the Ness of Brodgar blog….


I want, I want to see this exhibition too.  I’m told that it also runs until the end of September so it looks like we might be able to combine the two, later in the year.

I’ve previously admired work by Samantha Gray – some inspired by the Ness of Brodgar…


And some which looked, to me, like they were inspired by Pre-historic structures…


…..so I’m optimistic about her new exhibition - and we have an interest in dowsing.

Mike is a very good dowser – I’m not so good – a bit too random in my approach – and dowsing calls for precision when it comes to asking the right questions.

We have a copy of ‘The Definitive Wee Book On Dowsing’ by Hamish Miller – sympathetically illustrated by Jean Hands – which is a good source of info. on all things dowsing related…..


When we lived in Suffolk we spent a day dowsing a nearby field to try to locate the position of two Bronze Age Barrows which are known to have been there but were flattened by a farmer years ago – and we believe that we found them!  

Mike’s dowsing rods hang in the garage – ready for action….


More Matters Archaeological…

There’s a lot of it about….




A whole different kind of alignment…


We humans just can’t resist them…..


Here’s one I made earlier…. https://theorkneynews.scot/2020/12/11/poetry-corner-there-are-two-paths-you-can-go-by/
