The Myth and Mystery Behind Crop Circles ~ #Eco #space #mysteries #agriculture #photography
Rumors of crop circles have been around for centuries. The earliest recorded circle is probably a 1648 woodcut called the Mowing Devil. An 1880 article in Nature describes circular patches likely caused by cyclonic wind action. After WWII, aerial surveys over Britain revealed some unexplained phenomena that could not be detected from the ground. These “crop circles” were proven to be the result of buried remnants of ancient buildings. But our modern circles began in the 1970s in the English countryside. These early crop circles were simple circular patterns of unexplained phenomena that led to supernatural theories. While crop circles appear around the world today, Wiltshire, England - home to some of the most sacred Neolithic sites in Europe — appears to be their holy grail.
