I am extremely grateful to Richard in California, who generously sent me the above book as a gift, along with a very interesting collection of aura photographs. The book was first published in 1941 as an English translation of the 1938 second French edition. Considering this was written over 70 years ago I am absolutely astounded by the accuracy with which it explains in detail how:
Under the action of the electric field of the Earth, any body emits:
1. On all surfaces and both in the direction of the zenith and in the opposite direction, a thick bundle of vertical rays.
2. On a special line of that surface, two thin sheets of rays with the respective inclination of 45° and 135° on the vertical.

The author goes on to say:
We shall conclude that, from the dowsing point of view, it is as if, from ultra-violet to medium green, light waves were accompanied by ES [Electrical Specific] waves and of MS [Magnetic Specific] waves, from infra red to medium green with alternation of polarities, at the passage of each of the seven neutral colours, and that the same carriers, with similar alternations, of polarities, extend to the ultra-violet and infra-red parts of the spectrum.

The book, in effect, not only explains how dowsing works but also aura photography and many long-range locators, which weren’t even dreamt of at the time of writing. Reading this book has been an enlightening experience for me and I am sure I will be referring to it often. A reprinted version of the book is available at $19.70 from:

Bronze Age Founder's Cache

My latest treasure find is a Bronze Age founder’s cache consisting of broken axes and ingots – some twenty pieces in total. Bronze was a very valuable material 3000 years ago and the founder would have buried it for safe keeping until he wanted to use it to make new axes and other tools. Although not precious metal and of nominal intrinsic value, the find qualifies as potential treasure under the UK Treasure Act on account of its historical importance. I found the first part of the cache (as photo) in wintertime, quite unexpectedly as there are, of course, no real leads to anything this old. As such, I wasn’t using the camera but I was using a dowsing rod, which led me right to the main area of the scattered cache at the start of my metal detector search of this section of the field. I recovered twelve pieces on the first occasion. A week or so later the temperature had risen sufficiently to make use of the IR camera as I wanted to know if the main part of the cache was still in the ground. Although I had a weak aura from where I had recovered the Bronze Age material so far, there was no indication that there was a substantial amount of material in one place, waiting to be recovered. Extensive metal detecting of the area has so far recovered nine more very scattered pieces of the cache.
