The Strange Phenomenon of “Animal-Shaped Spirit Guardians”

In the same way that ancient Native American lore suggest the United States’ Bigfoot has unearthly origins, very much the same can be said of reports of such creatures seen in the United Kingdom. While the U.K. has a surprisingly large number of Bigfoot reports for such a small nation, it’s a fact that the sightings are not made at random. Rather, the vast majority occur in and around some of the U.K.’s most ancient and sacred stone circles. Why that may be is a question that will be answered at the very end of this chapter. First, however, let’s take a look at a number of the stand-out cases on record. Tucked away on the fringes of an old English village called Long Compton is a roughly circular formation of stones called the Rollright Stones. For just about everyone that visits the stones, the effect is very much the same: a sense of being deep in the heart of a magical realm, one saturated by matters paranormal and supernatural. It’s not surprising, then, that the Rollright Stones have attracted numerous legends to explain their presence. There’s no doubting their point of origin: the Bronze Age. As for their purpose, that’s quite another matter.
