How can dowsing be useful in archaeology?
On an archaeological dig, having an experienced dowser
check over an area beforehand can save a lot of time . The dowser can
ascertain where specific remains are liable to be found, giving the
archaeologist valuable insight into where the dig should be focussed.
Dowsers can ascertain where the walls of buildings used to be, or where
graves are likely to be found. Basically if you are able to name and
describe something that existed the dowser can find where it was.
When Peter dowses for archaeological purposes he
approaches the job in much the same way as for any other dowsing job. First
he ensures he is totally familiar with the things he is searching for, and
he then does an initial search using map dowsing before visiting the site
So for instance if someone has asked him to do a map
search for roman archaeology he needs to know all about that time period so
that he can picture the roman soldiers and their families. Then in a
peaceful quiet place with no distractions he concentrates on that time
period, as if going back in time mentally Once that is done, he is able to
concentrate on looking for roman roads, fortresses, burial sites and
artefacts. Once the map dowse has revealed something he can then go to the
next stage which is a site visit and remembering what he has done on the map
dowse he then puts it into practice on site.
BACK IN TIME
It is possible for a dowser to dowse back
in time providing they have full knowledge of the subject they seek. In
other words, if you are searching for a Roman building for example you would
study the Roman lifestyle at that time in history. This has been successful
in my experience.
FORWARD IN TIME
Again, it is possible to go forward in
time by dowsing. For example, it is possible if you concentrate hard enough
you could ask the question if it was going to rain where you live in the
next hour or so and the pendulum would respond and let you know. Again, this
has been successful in my experience. I must point out that if you do decide
to pursue these subject it is always wise to ask ‘May I, Can I, should I’.
If any one of these questions are answered ‘NO’ please do not go ahead.
