Crop Circles. What Are They? Who Makes Them? Why Are They Here?

They appear at night, complex designs mysteriously imprinted on fields of almost ripened grain. Nobody knows how they got there, or why. They leave the grain stalks in swirls, virtually undamaged. They exhibit mathematical precision. They demonstrate principles of geometry. They portray ancient religious symbols.

Since the 1980s, some 10,000 crop circles have appeared, seemingly by magic, in England and 25 other countries. Each year the count grows, and the designs get more intricate, even fantastic. Governments tell us they're hoaxes, but the evidence shows that most are not.

What is going on?

Author Freddy Silva lives in Wessex, the four-county area of southern England that has been host to 90 percent of the world's crop circles. In Secrets in the Fields, he takes us on an exhilarating firsthand field trip into the heart of the mystery. Silva takes us to the scene of the enigma, before, after, and during the appearance of a fresh circle. He introduces us to farmers, researchers, scientists, mystics, hoaxers and debunkers. He tells:

  • how to distinguish a hoaxed circle from a genuine one
  • what the magnetic field disturbances might mean
  • what time distortions observed at crop circles might mean
  • how sound, light and microwave energy may be involved
  • how a theory of music may account for their creation
  • what the circle images mean

Deeply informative and copiously illustrated, this is the most comprehensive look at crop circles to date.

From the Back Cover:

For over fifteen centuries mysterious crop circles have been mentioned in academic and religious texts. But around 1980 the phenomenon went into overdrive and exploded worldwide, and with it the public’s fascination. A major controversy erupted followed by a pre-designed debunking campaign. But eyewitness accounts clearly tell another story—that a genuine phenomenon is at work, and the human hoax story is itself a hoax. Secrets In The Fields offers the most thoroughly researched, most comprehensive account of crop cirles ever published. For the first time, we are offered the complete history of the phenomenon, the anomalies that defy the boundaries of science, the source, and why they are here now. Illustrated with over 400 images and diagrams—including a photo of a Circle-maker– this is a book for people exploring the Gnostic mysteries from a multi-disciplinary view, for it covers such topics as sacred geometry, sound, physics and metaphysics, ancient symbolism, subtle energies, ancient sacred sites, UFOs, Earth cycles and 2012 prophecies. This is a Guide to where we have been and a signpost to where we are headed.
