Ley line - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Ley lines / / are supposed alignments of a number of places of geographicaland historical interest, such as ancient monuments and megaliths, natural ridge-tops and water-fords. The phrase was coined in 1921 by the amateur archaeologist Alfred Watkins, in his books Early British Trackways and The Old Straight Track. He sought to identify ancient trackways in the British landscape. Watkins later developed theories that these alignments were created for ease of overland trekking by line-of-sightnavigation during neolithic times, and had persisted in the landscape over millennia.
