Enigma Issue 2: Barbury Castle 1991 - A Hoax!!

by Paul Vigay | Winter 1993/94

It was brought to my attention during the autumn months of 1993, that the elaborate Barbury Castle formation was possibly a hoax. So far, this is regarded as possibly the most elaborate and beautiful of all formations yet discovered. One that no hoaxer has dared to claim as his (or hers) - until now that is.

I can now reveal that due to hidden cameras being set up in the field, amazingly by coincidence only ten minutes before the hoaxer struck, the following evidence has been obtained using high-powered, expensive computer imaging techniques, Military Infra-red night sights, a piece of rope, a plank and a pogo stick.

The hoaxer wished to remain anonymous, but in the interests of crop circle research, I shall now reveal his identity. He is known as Zarg and comes from a small planet in the vicinity of Ursa Minor. In some of the photos, his friend Plook can be seen helping him by holding the other end of the piece of rope. A time-lapse sequence of events is shown below.

Note: These photographs serve to act as a demonstration as to how easy it is to hoax crop circle hoaxing using an elementary amount of computer graphics. They were created in around ten minutes using an ordinary home computer, costing under £200.

As yet, no 'human' hoaxer has admitted to creating the Barbury Castle formation. I believe this formation to be totally genuine.

Enigma issue 3 contains a serious article demonstrating this technique in more detail.
