Here Be Dragons examines the history of dragons, the different types and the cultural differences, while trying to determine the idea of what is a dragon in different times and places.
The book relates stories of saints battling with dragons and deals with English folklore about them, concentrating on Wessex in particular, and especially the Christchurch area. There are many dragon carvings in Christchurch Priory.
Ley lines, which can also be known as ‘dragon lines’, as dragons are supposed to fly in straight lines, are straight line alignments which pass over ancient sites and horizon features. This book also identifies some local ley lines and these are shown in full in the appendices. Ley lines probably originated as Neolithic farming calendars and remained in use for generations. Such alignments exist all over Great Britain and overseas, wherever the first farmers needed calendars at a time before people could read and write.
