The Dragon Project was founded in 1977 (a Trust from 1988), to explore rumours about the power and properties of ancient, especially prehistoric, “sacred” places and monuments.
The objective of the Trust is to research, publish and otherwise promulgate its findings in keeping with it being an educational charity. It is an independent entity with limited resources that relies on goodwill, volunteerism, and, where forthcoming, public donations and other funding from grant-making bodies in order to conduct its investigations. The project consists of a permanent board and a varying number of volunteers depending on what area of enquiry is being pursued at any given time. Its areas of interest involve any that it feels comes within its remit, and include, among others, the study of physical, measurable energies at sites; exploration of human biophysical and mental reactions and interactions at sites including monitored dreamwork sessions, and multi-sensory properties of sites, especially acoustical properties (archaeoacoustics).
Some of these areas are considered “fringe”, others, such as archaeoacoustics, not so. The DPT itself operates strictly in a neutral capacity to see what basis if any lies behind various claims, and where there seems to be such a basis, to explore further as its limited resources allow. It is not an exponent of New Age (or any other) belief systems.
