Product Information

The Meini Hirion and Sarns of Anglesey.
THE ISLAND'S MYSTERIOUS STONES & LEY LINES EXPLAINED FOR THE FIRST TIME.
by WILLIAM EVANS ( WIL IFAN O FON )

Anglesey has far more than its fair share of standing stones, in keeping with the large quantity of archaeological sites on the island. Most of these are large solitary stones, mainly of Bronze origin although are some that were erected recently.
Since very early times man has puzzled over the reasons for their existence, and many theories have been put forward. generally these have been that they were great places of importance to the people of the time, possibly of " religious " significance. Dr. William Evans noticed that there was a pattern to their layout on Anglesey. Certainly in the area roughly south of Cemaes there are standing stones marked on the Ordnance Survey maps which are aligned vaguely in the way described in this book. The sceptical amongst us will point out that the geological formation and later the glaciers that covered Anglesey had resulted in all the lumps and bumps on the landscape becoming aligned roughly in a NNE to SSW direction. This glacial platform that we call Anglesey would have given ancient man an ideal canvas on which to place his markers in a regular pattern for whatever reason.
Recently with the growth in popularity of metaphysics, much of interest has arisen in the reason for alignment of stones. This book, written and published in 1927, long before this , was well before its time. It may be a controversial theory, but it is one that ought to be re-explored, in the light of present knowledge.
After Dr. Evans ( Wil Ifan o Fon ) had written his book which he had intended to self-publish, he approached a printer in Llangefni. This book became the very first job to be printed on a Monotype letter casting machine at W. O. Jones. A subscription list was raised and copies were duly printed. However, the establishment strongly disagreed with his theories and it had a very bad reception. He had collected a few copies, but he was so upset by this very bad press that most were left with the printer and the job remained unpaid.
This is an effort by the grandson of W. O. Jones, to bring this work to the notice of the public for their scrutiny.
