ARTORIOUS REX, R.I.P.
The re-discovery of the Legendary KING ARTHUR.
BY ALAN HASSELL © COPYRIGHT 22/7/92
For centuries, tales of the Legendary King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table have fascinated scholars, Historians and Children of many nations.
Such is the popularity of this historic, charismatic character that millions of dollars have been spent making films about him and the deeds of his fabulous Knights. Bringing back to life for hours the legend behind Britain's most famous Hero.
Such is the enigma of Arthur that many people believe the story to be a myth, a fairy tale to entertain school children.
Serious researchers, however take a different view owing to the vast number of references made about him in Documents written during the Dark Ages, the time he ruled.
Startling new evidence is being uncovered almost daily about the Dark Ages, the period referred to when the Romans finally left Britain and after owing to lack of documentation.
Scientists, researchers and archaeologists are locating settlements that were laid out much the same as modern cities.
Special areas had been set aside for Industrial sites and fields or paddocks allocated for farming purposes. Apart from the basic materials used to their construct buildings, the people that lived in these communities retained the ways and methods of the Romans.
A Welsh monk, Gildas, believed to be related to Arthur stated writing the Arthurian legend when he wrote De Excidio Britanniae around 550 AD When Arthur was still alive.
Nennius another Welsh monk wrote his History of the Britons around 829 ad approximately 300 years after the Battle of Bodonicus, using many of the old documents which would have been available to him at the time as references.
Much of what was written at the time was either in Latin or Celtic and had to be translated into English. Wales is noted for having the largest collection of documents relating to Arthur than any other part of Britain.
There is the Black Book of Carmarthen, The Mabinogion Tales, The Triads, The LLandaff Charters and many more.
The LLandaff Charters is perhaps one of the most important of all these old documents because it is a record of events such as land grants to the Church that were more often than not donated by ruling Kings at the time.
These Kings are named together with their fathers that make the records a giant family tree. From these records, Geoffrey of Monmouth wrote his History of the Kings of Britain.
This one book for centuries was regarded as the most informative document ever written about Arthur, for it contained the first story with a beginning and an end about the Legendary King.
From this Sir. Thomas Mallory wrote his famous Morte D' Arthur. Mallory wrote of Arthur as if he existed during Mallory's lifetime. With each translation of the old documents, writers came up with different meanings of the old documents, causing distortion of facts and dates.
Eventually the original writings became so distorted, Historians considered the story mythical. Nennius wrote in chapter 56 of his History of Britain, the following. In those days the Saxons increased in numbers and grew stronger in Britain.
At Hengist's death, Octha his son went from the northern part of Britain to the Kingdom of Kent and from this arose the Kings of Kent.
Then Arthur fought against those men in those days with the Kings of Britons, but he was the leader of the Battles.
The First Battle was in the mouth of the River that is called the Glein.
The second, third, fourth and fifth on another River called Dubglas in the region of Linnius.
The sixth Battle on the River that is called Bassas.
The seventh Battle was in the forest of Celidon that is Cat Coit Celidon.
The eighth Battle was at the fort of Guinion, in which Arthur carried the image of the Blessed Mary, ever Virgin on his shoulders and the Pagans were put to flight and there was a great slaughter of them by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and by the grace of Blessed Mary the Virgin.
The ninth Battle was fought in the City of the Legion.
He fought the tenth Battle on the River called Tribuit.
The eleventh Battle was foot on a Mountain called Agned.
The twelfth Battle was at Badon Hill, where nine hundred and sixty men perished at one charge of Arthur's and no one killed them save himself. And in all the Battles he was Victor.
And they, when they were defeated in all the Battles, sent for help to Germany, and their numbers were ceaselessly added too, and they bought the Kings from Germany to rule over those in Britain.
Nothing is mentioned of Arthur being wounded or dying in Battle as Mallory would in Morte D' Arthur.
One must raise a question about Mallory's reasons for doing so at the time. As many other's I became interested in the Arthurian Legend many years ago and read over 30 books on the subject, hoping to get to the truth behind the legend.
Many others were doing exactly the same, and in Cardiff, Wales, Alan Wilson started doing the same thing as myself in 1956. He was joined by another enthusiast Baram Blackett in 1976. Together, financially unaided, only by themselves they set out to methodically uncover the truth about the Legendary King.
Their discoveries and revelations as a result of their persistent research are startling to say the least. Not only were they able to place Arthur in his Kingdom, they have also identified his ancestors and built his family tree from the old documents.
What is even more startling is the fact that they have located the graves of many of the legendary hero's written about in those days and photographed them as proof positive, including the grave of the famous King Arthur.
From a very early date, Arthur had always been associated with Cerniw or Cornwall and the most likely spot would have been Tintagel. During a recent visit to the U.K. an archaeological dig took place at Tintagel in 1991.
The dig confirmed the site had been occupied in the 5-6th centuries but no links to Arthur were found.
The reason lies in the actual location of Cerniw or Cernyw that is not in Cornwall, but part of a Dark Age Kingdom in South Wales. To confuse the issue even more, Wales was not divided into North and South as it is today, but several Kingdoms existed, each with a separate ruler or King. It was found by diligent research, that these Kingdoms could be identified together with the Kings that ruled them.
Arthur was a Christian, not of the Roman Catholic faith, but a Gnostic Christian.
The dictionary describes Gnostic Christians as being the holders of mystical or magical powers. People in those days were highly superstitious, which has been exaggerated to some extent over the ages.
The Church was quite powerful too, and many a conflict took place between Arthur and some Church leaders. The church relied upon Land grants from Kings to spread Christianity throughout the Kingdoms.
By doing so, the King, described as the founder would be assured of a place in heaven by being buried in the most sacred of places, the right hand of god, situated next to the altar.
Today the evidence still exists, and many of these old Kings can be found exactly where they were buried in the Churches they founded next to the Alter; Using such knowledge, Alan Wilson and Baram Blackett were able to track down not only the burial sites of the old Kings, but also those of their Queens.
Using ancient documents such as the LLandaff Charters, they were able to piece together many parts of the jigsaw puzzle that others simply did not understand or comprehend.
In their book, ''ARTORIOUS REX Discovered,'' the author's explain in detail how many of the old Kings were buried in Mounds or Barrows.
Many of these old burial sites are scattered throughout Wales. It was also customary to place a tomb-stone on or within these old tombs as a memorial stone to the late departed, much the same as is done today when a loved one dies.
The main problem appeared to be one of translating the meaning of the words engraved on the old stones.
For example King Caradoc 1st who fought many battles with the Roman's was known to them as Caractacus and is buried in his tomb mound at Twyn Caradoc on the Mynydd y Gaer in Central Glamorgan.
Mynydd y Gaer means Fortress Mountain and his burial site in mentioned clearly in ''Songs of the Graves.'' Graves of the old Kings can be accurately placed owing to the accuracy of the old records.
Every one has been visited and recorded using such knowledge. As the Kings became more Christianised, they changed their burial methods from mounds to the security of the Church because they would be assured of a place in Heaven regardless of sins.
As Christians, they feared entering Hell, which could be avoided by granting the church land and building a church, which in those days were used to house monks and saints. It was also a haven for travellers or soldiers, where they could upon surrender of their weapons be assured of a meal and a warm place to sleep for the night.
In Mallory's Morte D' Arthur we are told of how Gwenhwfar or Guinevere, Arthur's wife betrayed Arthur by becoming Lancelot's Lover. In reality there was not one Guinevere but three.
The first Queen Gwenhwfar gave birth to several boys, all of which would have been entitled to inherit Arthur's Kingdom when he decided to step aside. For it was common in those days for a son to take on the responsibilities of the King and rule together side by side.
However it appears that Arthur's sons were killed in one of his battles.
As Gwenhwfar was passed childbearing age, Arthur took another wife, also called Gwenwhfar in hope of getting another heir to the Kingdom.
Whilst Arthur was visiting King Howell in Brittany, France, which was part of Britain at the time, Gwenhwfar had an affair. Not with Lancelot as described in Mallory's Morte D' Arthur, but with Mordred, one of his nephews.
When news of the affair reached Arthur, he gathered up his army and sailed in his fleet of ships back to Britain.
This incident led to the Battle of Camlan, which for some strange reason appears on a 1974 Ordinance Survey Map, sheet 124 of the 1-50,000 series.
Careful reading of the old documents reveals the exact location and is illustrated in the book. Gwenwhfar, Arthur's Queen fled towards the old Druid stones, where she would seek sanctuary in a monastery in Perth, Scotland.
Nearby is the ancient parish of Meigle where there is a strange folktale.
It tells of Gwenhwyfar, Arthur's Queen fleeing from the King after he discovered her treachery and seeking sanctuary, only to be overtaken and torn apart by Arthur's war dogs. A grave mound exists which is claimed to be the Queens grave. There is a stone 8-foot tall by 3 foot wide and 3 inches thick.
Carvings on it depict a picture of knights in pursuit on the top half and the figure of a woman being attacked by wild dogs on the bottom.
Arthur had a major problem because he still had no heirs to the Kingdom, so he took another wife Gwenwhyfar.
From this union Arthur produced 3 sons Morgan, Ithael and Gwaednerth and the safety of his Kingdom was assured. To make the matter even more interesting, it was also found that Arthur had a little bit on the side, in fact three of them.
Maybe this is how Henry the VIII got the idea about his wives. The Author's went to extreme lengths locating the graves of Arthur's Queens and it comes as no surprise that they are to be found in Wales, Exactly where they should be.
Now the big question is, if Arthur is buried where he should be, in his own Kingdom in Wales? Who in tarnation is buried at Glastonbury ?.
Glastonbury is believed to have been founded by Joseph of Aremathea. As founder he would have been buried in the spot favoured by Kings, The right hand of god, next to the Alter.
Damaged in a fire. Henry II provided some money as a benefactor because he had a son named Arthur and was interested in the Arthurian legend.
Unfortunately the young price died in some sort of boating accident and Henry died several years later cutting off funds.
Richard was more interested in Crusades than Glastonbury so the old church was left to it s own devices.
One of the monks thought of a way to attract pilgrims who in turn would bring the much-needed revenue to restore the church to its former glory.
During a routine excavation, the remains of King Arthur and Queen Quenivere were uncovered together with a lead cross that would corroborate and prove the identity of the dead King and Queen.
That lead cross somehow mysteriously disappeared. However replicas and drawings of it were made of it before the cross did its disappearance act. Glastonbury, had a new draw card, a main attraction so to speak, the grave of the legendary King Arthur and Queen Gwenivere.
In fact, I too was one of those poor gullible suckers who visited Glastonbury, believing it to be Avalon and gladly paid the 5 pound's entrance fee to see for myself the grave of the dead King. Tourism, is big business in the U.K.
English Heritage who runs Glastonbury stands to lose millions of pounds in revenue earned from gullible tourists with their IMPOSTER'S GRAVE.
The town of Glastonbury would be crippled and bankrupt without the earnings from tourism.
So the question arises, if Arthur is not buried at Glastonbury, where is he buried? And the answer to that is where you would expect to find him, in his own Kingdom, Britain or to be more precise Wales.
People forget geographical boundaries Glastonbury was part of the Anglo Saxon territories that became known as England from Angle land. It is therefore logical that Arthur would be buried with his friends, the Britons, not the Anglo Saxons, who were pagans and his enemies.
Part of the enigma is the fact that Arthur is the only King who had a secret burial. When Arthur did eventually die as all mortals must, his sons were not old enough to lawfully inherit and rule his Kingdom.
Young Morgan, was still being taught the fundamentals all kings went through in those days, learning the arts and skills of warfare as well as being able to read, write and communicate with other Kings.
Only when the heir reached the age of fourteen, would he be eligible to take on the responsibility and gain respect of his elders. Because of Arthur's reputation as a fearless warrior, Britain would be safe from attack from his enemies whilst he was alive.
Had Arthur's death been made general knowledge, it would have opened the floodgates to the warring nations and immigrants. Mallory, tells how Bedivere threw Arthur's jewel encrusted sword Excalibur into the Lake, and three Queens arrived in a ship and took him to Avalon for his wounds to heal.
In reality Arthur was born around 503 AD and died a peaceful death around 579 AD. Much confusion is caused by dates, especially where Arthur is concerned.
It is caused by an entry in one of the old documents that place Arthur's death 546 years after the incarnation of our Lord. Which was presumed to be the birth of Christ. To the Roman Christians, the incarnation meant from the birth of Jesus. The Britons however, were Gnostic Christians and they took the meaning to be from the date of Crucifixion that meant 33 AD.
By adding 33 years to known events and dates, the whole perspective changes and falls into line with characters living at the same time. The Author's describe how through a series of academic blunders, a series of misdirection's and misinformation’s were created for political ends by both the Church and the State.
The truth of the Dynasty of King Arthur affected the legitimacy of the British Monarchy, and therefore the truth was obscured and distorted. Facts and evidence were proclaimed as false and legendary by the fake Tudor Kings and the slanders they and their minions perpetrated have been supported by their fearful academics that have failed to investigate the truth for generations.
One of the greatest puzzles has been the citing of Camelot. Historians and Archaeologists have spent much time and public money looking for the legendary fortress all over England. Digs have been carried out at great expense to the public at Cadbury, Maiden Hall, Tintagel and numerous other places.
Despite all their efforts at great cost, financially and in manpower, the Archaeologists have failed miserably in their task. Research has always been the secret of success in any great treasure hunt. Schliemann did his research, he found Troy.
The Authors spent many years going over old documents and have located the exact spot where Arthur held his Courts. One could be forgiven for thinking that maybe it could be Caerleon the old Roman City, situated in an indefensible plain.
Arthur would have been trained to use height to his advantage and would have occupied hilltop fortresses where the steep slopes could be easily defended.
Using height to his advantage, he would be like an eagle, able to survey all around him and follow his opponents every move and strike when the time suited him.
When his enemies had exhausted themselves and were in their most vulnerable positions, out in the open with no where to seek cover. Camelot, is not one hilltop fortress, but a whole series of them strategically placed where signals could be sent from one fort to the next and so on.
When modern maps are surveyed, The Caerleon Hill fort is the Centre point of a spider's web and there can be no doubt that the King of Gwent would have used this hill fort, which today is known as Lodge Hill. Despite numerous protests, mindless beaurocrats have allowed houses to be built on some of these old hill forts, destroying ancient monuments in the process.
In fact on the 21st September 1981 the Authors wrote to the Welsh Office asking for building to be stopped as they regarded the main Courts of King Arthur to be National Monuments. The beaurocrats ignored them and the building continued.
With it the wanton destruction of valuable historic sites. Some ruthless unthinking individuals would sell their souls to the devil because of greed for money and power.
The word Camelot was broken up into two more meaningful words Ca for Caer (fortress) and Melot that was a corruption of the word Melyn that means Yellow Fortress. The highly detailed explanation of Camelot, its location and purpose takes up numerous pages in the book.
It is difficult to justify and make the reader aware of the strategy behind Arthur's reasoning and citing Camelot in an article such as this. However the detailed explanation, not only sounds logical but also gave Arthur a strategic advantage.
Mallory wrote of Arthur's father as being Uthyr Pendragon, in a way, this is true except for the fact that it is a title that was used not only by Arthur's father, but also by Arthur's grandfather and Arthur himself. Translated it means, Victorious Pendragon a title given to Victors in Battle.
This in itself caused great confusion and frustration amongst historians and writers. Birth certificates were unheard of in those days, but everything was recorded in the old records, such as the LLandaff Charters, the Triads and so on.
Too many people were under the false impression that Arthur and his followers travelled mainly by horseback, unaware that Arthur also had a mighty fleet of ships at his disposal to transport themselves around the Kingdoms. Hengist the Saxon raided the Orkney's before finally settling around the Firth of Fourth.
They came in such numbers and took over vast tracts of land that led to numerous wars with the Northern Kings. In one of those wars almost all the Northern Kings were slain by the Saxons in a sneak attack catching the sleeping Britons off guard as they slept.
It should be remembered that a battle in those days would be fought in daylight hours and when night came, both sides would gather up their dead and injured and bury them.
Fighting would resume usually at dawn the following day, until victory could be claimed by one side or the other. It was also common practice to behead the defeated leaders and carry their heads on long spears even in battle, as this would often discourage the warring factions.
When news of the defeat of the Kings in the North finally reached Arthur's ears, he gathered all his neighbouring Kings into his courts to prepare for Battle and the final repulse of all Saxons from the shores of Britain.
The British Kings elected Arthur as their leader, or War King, or Dux Bellorum ( Duke of War ) as named by Nennius. There are Two River Seins in England, one in Northumberland, and in the other in Ayrshire.
The later being the most likely place for Arthur to have started his campaign to drive the Saxons out of Britain once and for all time.
The fighting was intense, and the Saxons were disadvantaged by the superior training of the Britons, their weapons and their armour. Those able to escape the fighting fled north, across the Clyde, towards Lake Lomand and Dumbarton. Nennius wrote of the next four Battles as taking place at, super aluid flumen quod dictur Dubglas et is en regione Linnisis.
Which is above the River Douglas in the area of Linnius, which is now known as Lennox.
There are many rivers named Douglas, but only two exist in Lennox. At the head of Loch Long, there is a hill named Ben Arthur, places were named when historic events happened in an area, such as battles.
So this location is within a region where Arthur fought a series of running battles over several days with the Saxons, who were attempting to stop his advance to the North where they had sent their women and children. Although heavily outnumbered, Arthur withstood the onslaught and defeated his enemies, which consisted of Saxons, Scots and Irish settlers.
With Arthur's ships patrolling the western coast of Britain, the Saxons were cut off from any hope of reinforcements from the sea and had no choice than to flee north. They finally regrouped at a place Nennius calls Bassas. The word Bass was construed to mean, ‘‘Mound in the estuary or bed of a river''.
In Aberdeenshire, there are ancient ruins of a Roman town called Camelot. Although sounding similar to Camelot, it has no connection. Nearby are two mounds, together with another ruin in the area known as Furnas Arthur and later renamed Arthur's O'on. Name association's point to this being the 6th Battle site in which Arthur destroyed the remnants of the Saxons.
Having gained control of the West and the North of Britain, Arthur now headed East and South to clear the land of other invaders such as the Picts who had wandered from lands allocated to them by the Romans. South of Edinburgh was the Cattreth area, where the men of Goddodin were defeated and their Northern Kings slain by the Saxons earlier According to Nennius the next Battle took place at Cat Coit Celydon, in the present forest of Selkirk and Ettrick, as this area was once part of the great Coed Celydon.
The Saxons and their allies had made a stronghold within the forest and erected all manner of obstacles and barriers that had been placed in Arthur's path. Although the battle waged for a number of days that inflicted heavy casualties upon the Saxons. Arthur's armies finally found a weak spot in their defences and were able to break through, leaving a trail of carnage and destruction as they bought the heavy cavalry into full use.
After the Battle in the forest, Arthur came out into open country along the River Tweed at Galashiels and Melrose, and onto the broad open plains of the coast. His advance took him to the Valley of Wedale (Dale of Woe) where the town of Stow now stands.
The Church at Stow is dedicated to St. Mary and it was in this battle that Nennius said, ''Arthur carried on his shoulder the image of St.Mary.'' The Battle was known as the Battle of Castello Guinnion or the White Fort. It appears that there was a Roman fort in the area with white walls; the foundations of this old ruin still remain today.
The Saxons had learnt many lessons in the last battles and realised the futility of fighting Arthur's army on open ground. Here they changed their tactics for the next four assaults Arthur faced would be on Fortresses.
Even this would not stop Arthur from defeating his enemies, he knew that like himself and his army he could bide his time and starve the Saxons into submission once they ran out of food and supplies.
Arthur's ships ensured a steady flow of provisions and also took the wounded Britons away from the Battlefields returning them to Wales. The Fortresses had to fall, for he might have won the battles, but not the war. Arthur was determined to destroy the Saxons and their allies once and for all and drive them from the shores of Britain.
The next battle was sited at where such a fortress existed in those days. Following the battle, in which he was again Victorious, his army buried its dead, transported it wounded to waiting ships and collected weapons from the batlesite, for the spoils of war go to the victor. It appears that the advances and victories of Arthur had the Saxons and the Picts so alarmed that they overcrowded the old Fortress at Sterling to such an extent that they were forced to meet Arthur on the nearby Sand Links along the upper Forth.
The conflict was short lived as Arthur's heavy cavalry could be used to full advantage slaughtering the Saxons who had been thrown into complete disarray once the cavalry charged. There only remained the final settlements of Scottish, Saxon and Pictish power left. Mons Agned, has always been known as Edinburgh.
It is highly favoured that the battle took place on the same rock where the famous Castle now stands. For nearby is an escarpment known as Arthur's seat, and it was here that Arthur camped whilst the siege went on for control of the area.
Those lucky enough to have escape the death and destruction fled to the last known stronghold Badon Hill or more correctly known as Bouden Hill. When Arthur arrived, he found his enemies hiding behind a wall, so he adopted an old Roman tactic by building an outer wall. This would not only keep them in, but also prevent any chance of escape.
The Saxons realising that the cunning Arthur had not only cut off any chance of food coming in but also entrapped them in the process decided to break out after a siege lasting three days.
It was here that Nennius describes how 960 of Arthur's enemies fell in one charge of the British. Bouden Hill is near Linlithgoshire above the River Avon. In 1710 a Mr.Sibbald writing his account of Linlithgoshire states: ''On Bouden Hill are to be seen the vestiges of an outer and inner camp.
There is a great pile of stones upon Lochcote Hill against Bouden Hill and in the adjacent ground there are to be found chests of stones with bones in them. It is uncertain when or with whom the fight was.
Following the battle of Bouden Hill peace was restored and the British lived on without further threat from the invading Saxons. Arthur was elected unanimously to the position of Paramount King of all Britain by his fellow kings of Britain.
When one studies the maps of Arthur's campaigns, it clearly illustrates how Arthur's army thrust itself deep into enemy held territory and once having gained the advantage never allowed the Saxons time to reorganise and reinforce their strength. Arthur's heavy cavalries were able to outrun and cut off the Saxons isolating them into small group that the infantry could easily finish off with their superior weapons and fighting skills.
Arthur's battles were not over yet as he was forced again to take up his sword against his nephew Mordred. Arthur had not only made him one of his trusted Generals, but also left him in charge of his Northern borders. Upon his return to Britain, Arthur was forced to fight his way ashore.
Mordred fled to regroup at Camlan where a major battle took place. It was in this confrontation, that Arthur lost many of his devoted followers, which were spoken about for over a thousand years. After the battle, it is said that Arthur had received a minor wound, but no mention is made of him dying as a result of his wound.
After recovering from his wound, Arthur went on to marry the third Guinevere and three sons were the result of the marriage. Arthur's secret burial. When Arthur finally died, he had laid down a specific set of instructions that were entrusted to only those closest to him, because news of his death would have opened up the flood gates again to invading Saxons that might have meant the fall of his kingdom.
Arthur was to be taken by boat to a secret cave, near the River Ewenny where his cousin Stilted, a monk had been living in seclusion. St IIltyd had dug a hole in the solid rock in which Arthur was to be buried at midnight.
This St.IILtyd did and finally placed an Alter stone on top of the grave of a ''very important un-named man.'' This final act of placing an alter stone to cover a grave signifies a very high ranking person indeed. Alan Wilson and Baram Blackett spent many years trying to solve the riddle of the hidden grave of Arthur. Their persistence finally paid off when they eventually located the secret resting-place. They even photographed it, however as luck would have it, Arthur had been moved and re-buried elsewhere.
It was only meant to be a temporary resting place, until such time as the young prince Morgan was old enough to inherit the Kingdom and give his Father a burial suitable for a King. One must remember too, that the Celts and Druids were the oldest civilised culture living in Britain.
The Welsh were the true Britons, the Britons who defeated Rome in 387 A.D. The Britons who resisted all attempts by the Roman Catholic Church to establish itself in Britain which had been accepted in Germany where the Anglo Saxons originated from. There has been much bitter petty minded jealousy by historians such as Bede, who only wrote about Anglo Saxon histories and victories.
The man therefore was totally biased and neglected to include British history in his writings. King Arthur in the minds of the Anglo Saxons, could be compared to Hitler, because of the slaughter and devastation Arthur inflicted upon a barbaric, pagan race that would have done the same destruction to the Britons as was inflicted upon the Saxons themselves.
Throughout the centuries, the true Britons, (the Welsh) have been suppressed by the English for their political needs. They were denied any form of education for centuries, and when they were finally allowed schools, the children had to be taught in English, by English (Anglo-Saxon) teachers.
The book is full of documented evidence which is quite staggering. In fact, because it brings into doubt the credibility of the ruling monarch from the House of Hanover, it's a wonder it even got published.
There are 290 pages in the book including many illustrations and photographs. Because the writers do not have a distributor in Australia, or America the only way you can obtain a copy is to send away for it to King Arthur Research, 3 Ty-Draw Place, Penylan, Cardiff, Wales. or Phone them on (0222) 486405 The retails for about $30.00 but the postage will probably cost another $10.00, but if you're interested in history then it's really great reading.
This article was written in 1992 but for personal reasons, I decided not to publish it, for the simple reason, the information it contained was too dangerous to reveal to unscrupulous detectorists.
These are the Nighthawks who use light intensifiers or night vision glasses and high powered metal detectors to raid ancient historical sites. They consider it their god given right to remove anything metallic from the ground no matter what the historical value.
These individuals destroy evidence so vital to historians and archaeologists who attempt to get a better picture of events by the finds they make. These finds end up in museums for the general public to see and visit and admire. The felon is only interested in one thing personal gain and will sell off his finds to the highest bidder, with no consideration for other people other than himself. These are the people that will give metal detecting a bad name and cause restrictions to be enforced in many countries.
The demand for antiquities is great, consequently some individuals consider it there god given right to remove them from the ground using high powered metal detectors.
The true story of Arthur and the British Kings is so complex that the history books will need to be rewritten.
It was only with the release of another book entitled,''The Holy Kingdom'' by Adrian Gilbert recently that I have decided to post this article in my home page. For those interested in obtaining the book, it is published by Bantam Press via Tran world Publishers Ltd ISBN 0593 040627.
This book goes even further than Alan Wilsons and reveals the exact location of Arthur’s grave.
The overwhelming documented evidence is such that modern historians cannot dispute the facts presented.
The lies deceit, misinformations used by them in the past are exposed for what they are.
Far from being Pagan's, the early Britons were a highly civilised Christian society. They were the founders of Christianity in Britain, which later became known as England. ©
Please note: that since this was written Alan Wilson & Baram Blackett no longer live in Wales. They have moved on to greener pastures where Government officials don't make your life a living hell as they did in Wales.
PLEASE REMEMBER THIS WAS WRITTEN IN 1992 MANY YEARS AGO AND A LOT OF RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE SINCE THEN AND MORE KNOWLEDGE ACQUIRED. ITS BEING PUBLISHED AGAIN TO SHOW WE WERE STILL IN THE CASE AND LOOKING FOR ANSWERS EVEN THEN AS WE ARE IN 2009
