Waun Mawn

Post by Christoffer »

This spring news reached my small scandinavian country that a place in Wales now is thought to have housed a very many of the present stones of Stonehenge, erected in the same positions.

I cite from the Guardian: A series of buried stone-holes that follow the circle’s outline has been unearthed, with shapes that can be linked to Stonehenge’s bluestone pillars. One of them bears an imprint in its base that matches the unusual cross-section of a Stonehenge bluestone “like a key in a lock”, the archaeologists discovered.

More comprehensive, from the journal Antiquity: www.cambridge.org/core/journals/antiqui ... E3136FBC33

I havent been able through Google to find out if Waun Mawn before 2010 was known to be a megalithic site...

Next question: Has any UK dowser been able to investigate Waun Mawn? Or is it still shut off because of archaeological investigations?

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 Neolithic Universe, as a site to demonstrate that the world is round, and that the bluestones taken to Stonehenge may have been in commemoration of that. More details on his theory HERE.

Shut off or not you can still visit with Google Earth any time or day, for me the site is very small and nothing like Parker Bowles said with some stones being taken to Stonehenge, its Sacred Circle is just 18 to 20 feet wide, well in my opinion and nothing like the huge size reported.

The radius of the Sacred Circle is 13.69 feet in my dowsing opinion, the other stones out wide could have been for ceremony where folk walked around the site ?

i am reliably informed that the West Wales Dowsers will be visiting Waun Mawn this coming October (2021) - either the 10th or the 17th TBC.
