Holy Grail and Ark of Covenant in the Midlands!

In the labyrinth of dark, dank tunnels beneath a crumbling, ancient home may rest a HOLY treasure of gold and precious stones that has eluded historians for years. Beneath Sinai House - for hundreds of years, an imposing landmark in the brewery town of Burton-upon-Trent - lies the lost treasure of ...

Re: Geller hunts for treasure island

Having visited North Berwick last weekend, I was having a look at this old thread again to remind myself about Lamb Island. Some of the links are no longer working, sadly. However, I did manage to find Geller's blog post about his trip to the island in 2010 to search for the treasure of Princess Sco...

Re: Dowsing apps for your phone

I note that the 'Dowsing Apps'... err... app has been withdrawn, and the website has disappeared. There are, however, several distinctly dodgy looking dowsing apps available in the Google Play store (I'm on Android), many from foreign parts, ranging from ' virtual pendulums' to water- and gold-detec...

Re: Waun Mawn

Hi Christoffer, I'm not personally aware of anyone who has dowsed Waun Mawn, but I would suggest that it's almost certainly been visited by the West Wales Dowsers at some point, so it would be worth getting in touch with them about it. Waun Mawn was also used by Jonathan Morris, in his book A Neolit...

Re: Pendulum not moving but getting heavily pulled downwards

Hi Kaya, The pendulum can sometimes produce unusual responses, but it is up to you to establish what these responses mean for you by asking further questions. I'm not sure what you mean when you say the pendulum was 'pulled downwards'? Isn't it hanging downwards to start with? When you are just lear...

Glastonbury Abbey's High Altar vandalised

Some undisclosed vandals, probably 'nighthawk' metal-detectorists, have dug up part of the High Altar area in Glastonbury Abbey. Maybe they were hoping to awaken Arthur? ;) A large hole has been dug in the grounds of a seventh-century abbey. Staff at Glastonbury Abbey discovered the damage in the Hi...

Re: Famous dowsers

Thanks Ian, it's good to finally have a reference for that oft-quoted Einstein letter. In case it disappears into the ether again, I'm reproducing the text here. I'm guessing that the 'Danville Convention' mentioned refers to the ASD, since their HQ is there. 4 February 1946 "Mr. Herman E. Peis...

Does Water Divining Actually Work?

A nice little article on #dowsing in Country Life magazine, mentioning BSD and (sadly) water dowser Linda Fentum who tragically died in a diving accident while on holiday in Scotland last week. Widely thought to be a form of witchcraft, water divining relies on a pair of rods and ‘the uncanny reacti...

Digital Divining Drone

A Swiss research group has developed a drone-carried sensor that can detect the water content of terrain below, and are offering it as a cheaper and more accurate measurement supplement to existing technology like satellite imagery. Its creators say the device can optimize a variety of terrain mana...

Re: Rollright Stones

Do you have any dowsing knowledge of this site? Hi Shaun, One of the Friends of the Rollrights, who is often on-site as a warden, is Ron Dudley-Smith. He is a BSD member and often provides dowsing instruction at the site. You can see him in action at the stones in this picture (he's the one on the ...

Re: Military use of Dowsing

I'm adding a few references to old BSD journals here from Nick Haywood's Dowsing Research website ; for the moment some of these are not active links as they haven't been scanned yet. If anyone has the relevant journals and would care to scan in these articles, please email them to us and I'll gladl...

This obituary notice came to me via a Google Alerts for dowsing. I thought it worth posting the link here as Fred was apparently a long-standing member of the BSD. The name isn't familiar to me, but someone else reading the forum might know of him. He certainly seems to have had a long and spectacul...
