"Five Stars - Best Buy"
Dartmoor News

"I have read your book and have thoroughly enjoyed it - it is refreshing, full of energy and the product of much worthwhile observation and reading. Hopefully, it will become the base text for those wishing to expand their vision of prehistoric Dartmoor"
Tom Greeves, Chairman, The Dartmoor Society

This groundbreaking book covers the author's research, including profound personal experiences, based on ‘cognitive archaeology’. He uncovers the intricate relationships between tor outcrops and other natural features, with stone circles, stone rows, cairns and megaliths. This book insightfully proposes how our prehistoric ancestors interacted with notable outcrops, simulacra, rock basins and propped stones; the author gets inside the minds of prehistoric people and their shamans, to walk their Dreamtime. We are invited to perceive landscapes as interfaces, saturated with cultural and mythic memory. Peter suggests ways to walk and interact with the landscape in a more meaningful and mindful way today, to develop deeper connections with the sacred and ancient mindscapes of Dartmoor.

The book also covers earth energies and dowsing, shamanism, acoustics, astronomical and landscape alignments, and much more!

This is the author's 11th book exploring sacred sites and indigenous, ancient wisdom.

Peter's new book out 6th of May 2015

Contact Peter Knight to reserve your signed copy NOW! Only £16.99 plus £2 postage

Peter's new book is a full-colour and profusely-illustrated guide to how the Church adopted and assimilated pre-Christian myths and symbols for its own use, to help promote its own agenda. Most Christian icons can be traced back to an older origin, and many churches were also sited on ancient holy places. The Church also took over existing Pagan festivals and turned them into saint's days. This fascinating book links Egyptian, Norse, Greek, Celtic and other cultures to the new religion - you will be suprised at what you find!

"Peter is earth mysteries' most prolific author-publisher"
Andrew Collins

"A brilliant book"
Janis Martin

"A great read and brilliantly researched. Well done!"
Gary Biltcliffe, co-author The Spine of Albion

A groundbreaking work which finally demonstrates what the Giant represents, why he is positioned where he is on the landscape, and how he reflects not only the myths of the Ancients but also the heavens above. The Giant is connected with Lugh, Baal, Osiris, Bran, Hercules, Gwyn ap Nudd, and with the constellation Orion and a mythical Egyptian Stargate. The book also deals with landscape alignments and how the Giant is so perfectly positioned standing where he is; how the Giant was changed in appearance; ley lines; phallicism and fertility folklore; groundbreaking astronomical alignments; a local landscape horse and other hill figures; giants in folklore and myth; other local sacred sites and megaliths; all the possible candidates for the Giant’s identity; and finally, how he can be an icon for today.

"The Cerne Giant: Landscape, Gods and the Stargate" is the latest book from the earth mysteries' most prolific author-publisher Peter Knight. It examines the world-famous chalk hill figure and pinpoints its astronomical connections with the local horizon. In addition to Orion, the giant's chosen identity, the hill figure's ritual landscape seems aligned quite specifically to Cygnus and the Milky Way's Dark Rift, which acted as a road or path to the sky-world. Peter has got these books off to a fine art now, and it comes well recommended from this camp."

“Fab work on the long barrow.. really is a handbook on how to access other sites.”
Chris Street

“It is excellent… plenty of new stuff”
Andrew Collins

“A comprehensive study and an enjoyable read… recommended”
Merry Meet Magazine

“An amazing book - thank you. So much information. Many blessings."
Julie Winter

“A timely work, in its all-embracing approach”
Geoff Ward, Mysterious Planet

“Contains much knowledge and good advice. In my opinion the book is a good marriage of intellectual and emotional wisdom… I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.”
Michael Hodges, Historian

Peter’s book is the most comprehensive and all-encompassing guide ever undertaken on West Kennet Long Barrow, and its surrounding landscape, including such sites as Silbury Hill and East Kennet Long Barrow (see chapter headings below). He looks at all aspects of this Neolithic wonder, from sacred sound and his acoustical experiments, to the psychic and paranormal, from landscape alignments to his solar, lunar and stellar astronomical discoveries, and from symbolism to earth energies/dowsing. He deals in details with the shamanic aspects, and how we can interact with, and care for, the monument today. Peter also re-appraises the archaeological excavations and surveys of the site, bringing its shamanic aspects to the fore. The site was sacred to Neolithic clan members thousands of years ago, but can we use their knowledge and wisdom today?

Peter has spent many hours up at the barrow, inside its dark chambers to test the acoustics of the site through drumming and chanting, as well as to meditate to connect with his ancestors. Outside, he has demonstrated how the sun rises over other nearby sites at the festivals, and has some stunning images of these in the book. The sun even penetrates some of the chambers, such as the SE chamber at summer solstice. He also illustrates how Orion, Sirius and other stars were aligned with the barrow and its chambers. The Neolithic shamans here were connected with the heavens as much as they were the land. The site was never just a tomb, and is very much ‘open for business’ today!

Peter suggests that West Kennet long barrow can help us all create a closer, more spiritual link with the landscape we inhabit. Peter walked the landscape around West Kennet, to connect and sense what the landscape wanted him to know – his results will surprise you! Peter’s book is a labour of love, as his love and respect for the site comes out, as well as how we can all visit the dark recesses of the chambers as an aid to perhaps reaching into the dark recesses of our own inner nature. His own profound, personal experiences at the site are highlighted, along with those of others: the site is very much receptive to our interaction today.

13 Moons

Thirteen Moons

Conversations With The Goddess

£9.99 Signed copies direct from author – add £1.75 postage.

"A font of wisdom and knowledge… fascinating from beginning to end”
Diana Cooper (Cygnus Review)

"Bought your book 13 Moons. I am in awe of it and want to share the knowledge. I'd also like to get a half dozen of the books to share with others here in the US. It has had a profound affect on my spiritual path, I want to spread the joy!"
Cathy Prettyman, USA

"Once in a blue moon, a special book like Peter Knight’s comes along…”
Geoff Ward, author of Spirals – Patterns of Existence

"No sooner had I left the shop and settled on the grass by the Devils Chair (Avebury) my nose was glued…. page after page, you know that feeling you get when its going to be a good read… Thirteen Moons has opened my mind and soul. I understand it was YOUR pilgrimage with the earth mother, but the more I read the more I felt I was with you on your journey.”
Mandi (Hampshire)

If you were out one night in a ruined church, how would you react if your head were suddenly filled with an elder voice professing to be the Earth Goddess? This happened to our hero, just an ordinary chap really, on a somewhat disillusioned spiritual path. His world was turned inside out. Through him the Earth Mother has revealed profound insights on how to interact with the land and sacred sites. He is shown such secrets as the meaning of the Grail, Mary Magdalene, crop circles, sacred sites, ley lines, earth energies, sacred geometry, to help us reconnect with the Earth and learn what the human experience is really about. Visions, dreams and synchronicities guide him to receive ancient wisdom at Rosslyn Chapel and Temple Church (two Da Vinci Code localities), Stonehenge, Avebury, Glastonbury, the New Forest, as well as Ireland, Brittany and Dartmoor, including spectacular visions from the top of the London Eye. Along the way he meets his totem animals, converses with the Oak King and others who revere the Goddess. However, he also encounters opposition to the new teachings, from those who hold more orthodox beliefs. His astonishing journey reveals profound messages for Mankind, including 13 Insights - before it’s too late!

Incredibly, Thirteen Moons is semi-autobiographical, as Peter Knight draws upon his own research and knowledge of our spiritual heritage. Much of Peter’s own spiritual journey unfolded whilst researching Thirteen Moons, mirroring his own simultaneous growth. He retells, through the hero’s exploits, many of his own discoveries and profound experiences at sacred sites. The novel is refreshingly laced with the author’s caustic humour and strewn with amusing anecdotes, including his own take on religion and personal growth.

The Wessex Astrum

The Wessex Astrum

£12.95

“Wow! What a read! Peter and Toni's beautifully written and presented book brings our native landscape to life with new meaning, while revealing its sacred geometry. The book is meticulously researched, with many photos and fascinating histories of the many ancient Earth sites, churches, and holy springs which form the Wessex Astrum. The book is a tribute to the wisdom of ancient beings who possessed infinitely more knowledge of the Earth than we appear to have today. Let us honour those ancestors and learn from them, for by so doing we become worthy of our place on this beautiful planet. This book can help us to do that. I look forward to many exciting sunny days of discovery and exploration of the fascinating places described in The Wessex Astrum.”
Diane Rigby-Edwards

“The hypothesis is well constructed and well explained …a fine book following the true tradition of Earth Mysteries … Get it – use it.”
Alan Bowers, Editor, Society of Ley Hunters Newsletter

“For anyone interested in sacred landscape, this book is an essential and inspiring guide…… there is a deep mystery at work here, full of synchronicity and unfoldings…… far too much information to be absorbed in a single read…… highly recommended!”
Mike Jones, The Oracle magazine, Nov 08

“I have greatly enjoyed The Wessex Astrum. It is a most interesting addition to our knowledge and could lead on to further discoveries… … Well done for a really valuable book and an enjoyable read”.
Michael A Hodges (ley lines researcher and author of Here Be Dragons)

“An absolute must for all dowsers!”
Dowsing Today – British Society of Dowsers magazine

This remarkable book has already received praise from Peter and Toni’s peers and fellow researchers. It presents their astounding new discovery of an ancient hexagram Y over 50 miles long, encoded onto the Wessex landscape, involving the “big three” -Stonehenge, Avebury, Glastonbury. Two of its defining lines are the famous St Michael Line (the section between Glastonbury and Avebury) and one of the “Bluestones Triangle” lines, involving Stonehenge and the Preseli Mountains, described by Robin Heath. Also involved are numerous sacred hills, abbeys, holy springs and wells, Knights Templar sites, hill forts, ancient tombs and many other sacred places. No other landscape figure has before linked Stonehenge, Glastonbury, Avebury, the St Michael Line and the Bluestones Triangle – the Wessex Astrum links all these elements and more! In fact, the only truly accurate section of the St Michael Line is the section that lies within the Wessex Astrum – so which came first!

This book will astound you, as over 500 miles of alignments forming this incredible landscape wonder are detailed; Peter Knight and Toni Perrott tell their own their personal journey of discovery, as each chapter follows each line in turn, uncovering new revelations; they travelled up and down each of the lines - new megaliths were discovered, energy flows dowsed, secret symbolism decoded, images of a very pregnant Mary Magdalene and much more: Sacred geometry, holy caves, Knights Templar and Freemasonic sites, were found on the St Michael Line, plus dragon symbolism in churches. Incredibly, several hexagram crop formations of recent years had manifest on Astrum lines, and three of Wiltshire’s white horses gallop along the lines of this landscape wonder.

The book is profusely illustrated with images and original maps are also given, enabling the reader to follow the lines across the landscape and grid references of sites given throughout; this is in fact the priority of the authors, that the reader should follow in their footsteps, to discover a landscape of magic and wonder, and ancient landscape of our distant ancestors.
