There's the usual starter of John Michell's New View over Atlantis
, but you can do no better than start with Paul Devereux's works:Lines on the Landscape
(with Nigel Pennick)Shamanism and the Spirit LinesEarthmindPlaces of Power
He's done plenty of others, but they're well worth starting out with.
For your standard megalithic texts, Get hold of Aubrey Burl's:Rites of the GodsGreat Stone CircleThe Stone Circles of Britain, Ireland & Brittany
For issues relating to the sacred Earth, get hold of:
Eitel, E.J., Feng-Shui
Evans-Wentz, W.Y., Cuchuma and Sacred Mountains
Michell, John, The Earth Spirit
For decent analysis of druidic/Celtic (add your own metaphor) mythos, get hold of:
Jones, Leslie Ellen, Druid, Shaman, Priest
Rees, Alwyn & Brinley, Celtic Heritage
Ross, Anne, Pagan Celtic Britain
Tolstoy, Nikolai, The Quest for Merlin
But probably more important, AVOID books like The Standing Stones Speak
and similar clairvoyant messages of druids and megaliths. They'll put you back a lifetime or 2 in research and development!
Hope they're of help!
All the best - Paul
