Francine Blake is native of Canada, and came to England to study Ancient Knowledge. She discovered the crop circle phenomenon in 1989 and three years later moved to Wiltshire to study the formations at close range. In 1995, she founded the Wiltshire Crop Circle Study Group with three others. The aim was to study the phenomenon in all of its aspects: i) Physical – surveying and collecting samples from the crop circle formations to send to laboratories for analysis; photographing the crop circles and lodging the photographs into the Group’s Archive. ii) Metaphysical - endeavouring to understand the meaning encoded in the crop circles. iii) Spiritual - taking into account the symbolic aspect of the crop circles that can have a transformative effect on the way we see things. To this effect the Group supported scientific evidence by collecting wheat and earth specimens sending them to laboratories in England and the US for analysis; photographing the designs from helicopters from 1995 until 2012; organising lectures on sacred geometry and ancient knowledge as well as staging an annual conference at Marlborough College with speakers invited world-wide. Over the years Francine has given many lectures in English and French throughout England, Wales and Ireland, in France, Belgium, the USA, Canada, South Africa, India and Brazil.
