Aussie historian believes he has buried forever the ‘cereal’ lie that crop circles are the work of hoaxers – by unearthing Black Country images of them dating back to 1945 and beyond.
“This discovery proves that claims by various artists to be the sole creators of crop circles are themselves a hoax,” he says.
“It just goes to show that the circles remain unexplained.
“I hope this discovery will stimulate renewed interest in crop circles by serious scientific researchers who have been fooled by the hoax claims.”
The Ministry of Defence … up to 1990, blamed all crop circles on two pensioners named Doug and Dave.
The theory was debunked when the structures, which some claim have healing qualities, appeared as far afield as California and Western Australia.
In fact, they have been spotted in 29 countries, created out of wheat, barley, linseed, rice paddies and even ice.
Doug and Dave only had bus passes.
I knew Doug and Dave could not possibly have done them all.
