The Dragon Project was founded in 1977 (becoming a Trust in 1988 ) initially in order to mount an interdisciplinary investigation into the rumours (existing in both traditional folklore and modern anecdote) that certain prehistoric sites and ancient venerated places had unusual forces or energies associated with them. This work in the project’s early years was partially funded by the Threshold Foundation. The Dragon Project, a loose and shifting consortium of volunteers from various disciplines, conducted intermittent physical monitoring sessions at sites in the UK and other countries, over several years.
In 1990, the DPT decided to shift the main focus of its work to the study of the interaction between human consciousness and ancient site environments. Its first effort in this broad area of enquiry was its ancient sites dreamwork programme, which had Dr Stanley Krippner of the Saybrook Institute in San Francisco as consultant.
In the early period (late 1970s- mid-1980s) when the Dragon Project (later a Trust) conducted its physical monitoring, it also ran a side-programme making on-site studies of people claiming skills in primary sensing, such as dowsers and psychics. Could they tell us anything reliable about the sites we looked at, especially the Rollright Stones in Oxfordshire, the main field HQ of the project? Dowsers were invited individually on site and given identical reference materials – three site plans on which to mark their dowsing findings at three different, set levels beneath the ground.
