On March 7, 1999, I visited Indian Mounds Park in Columbus, Ohio. There are two mounds at the park. One is located in the center field of a softball diamond. The boundary line between the park and a row of houses divides the other mound down the middle. Both of these mounds have been damaged so extensively in the past by agriculture, that it is difficult to see where the peaks of the mounds were. I looked for the location of the original peak by dowsing the area until I detected a wheel-like pattern of 23 lines in center field. Then I dowsed around the side of the second mound that was in the park and located 11 lines that intersected at the boundary line.
In the early 1920s, a man named Alfred Watkins noticed that many ancient sites are located along linear tracks or "ley lines". Up to this point, I was mostly concerned with the energy pattern in the immediate vicinity of each mound, and did not really consider myself to be a "ley hunter". But since these two mounds were so close together, I decided to dowse between them to see if they might share a line in common. Sure enough, there was a dowsable line of energy running North-South between the peaks of the two mounds. Later that evening, I spread out a map of Columbus and marked the mound sites at Indian Mounds Park and Highbanks Metro Park with thumb tacks and tied a string between the two locations. Not only does this line pass straight through the two mounds in each park, it also passes through the site of a previous mound at Mound Street and High Street.
