The Western Star Map Mounds.

Copyright Alan Wilson & Baram Blackett 2009

Once the great Star Map of the major Stars that is laid out across the landscape in South East Wales was found, it was automatic that Wilson and Blackett would transfer their attention to the large scatter of similar mounds on the hill-tops of South West Wales. Here in Pembrokeshire and Cardiganshire another very clear pattern of ancient Cairns, High Altars, and mounds were also placed to represent the major Stars in the Heavens.

This array of Star representations on the ground that conforms to the pattern of the major stars in the Heavens also has the purpose of guiding the persons able to follow the Stars and also able to read the journeys of the "heroes" or Planets of the ancient British Mabinogi Tales. In this way the reader can go to the hidden sites where the treasures of Britain are concealed.

The West Wales Star Map of Mounds and Monuments centres around the constellation of the Cross that is wrongly seen as the later Greek and Roman designation of Cygnus the Swan.

It is always necessary to follow the older Egyptian, Hebrew, and Arab, designations of the Stars and to ignore the later Greek and Roman identifications.

The mounds and stones representative of the other major stars of the Cross-Cygnus and the surrounding constellations that are close around are very clearly correctly laid out and named.

It is easy to find Bedd yr Afanc or Grave of the Water Monster, and the three mounds of The Sceptre of Cephus, and the mound of the Lily and Triangle, and the stars of Andromeda, and the correctly placed five mounds of the 'W' of Cassiopeia the Queen of Heaven.

The mounds on Mynydd Dinas and Mynydd Carningli (angles), are clearly laid out to represent Lyra the Harp with a large mound for the star Vega and two smaller mounds for the smaller star.

The correct identification of these Star Mounds on the hills then allows for the equally correct identification of the mounds positioned for the stars of the constellation of Perseus the Robber.

The foot of the Cross is at the old temple site and High Altar of Pentre Ifan, and the head of the Cross Map is a Dolmen named Trelyffant for 'place of toads'.

This is a totally unsuitable place to find Toads.

The Southern end of the map of crossbeam of the Cross is marked by an Altar known as a Dolmen known as Coetan Arthur, and called Carreg Coethi for "to purify' or 'make clean'.

The Northern end of the crossbeam is marked with another cup marked stone at Cwngloyne -'valley of butterflies', near Coedwynog or 'Lambs wood'. Jesus the Nazarene was known as the Lamb of God.

North of this is the star Gamma stone of Cemwys - or 'The Salmon' Where these two lines of the upright pole and crossbeam intersect there is an ancient sealed cave.

This was covered with a growth of bushes, weeds, and ivy.

This star pattern is clearly laid out for the story in the Mabinogi of the great warrior Peredur -Steel Shirt, who is actually the Planet Jupiter.

In the story Peredur takes lodgings with a Miller and his wife and the entire valley is dotted with mills.

The mills are needed to provide food for the Soldiers of the Countess, who is later revealed as the Empress of Constantinople.

The fact Is that Richard Wyer traced no less than fourteen forms in this valley that all had water mills, and there is a small hamlet called Trefelyn Farchog = The Mill-Town Knight.

The Empress Helen mother of Constantine the Great brought the Holy Cross from Jerusalem and took it too Constantinople, and there is a tiny hamlet still called Constantinople and large stone ruins in a wood.

Place names like the River of the Empress, Ridge of the Empress, Castle of the Great Helen, the river of the Sanctuary, and so on and on abound.

The grave of Empress Helen has been traced with great effort and expense by Baram Blackett and Alan Wilson and collaborators.

An ancient stone cross is carved above the sealed cave and the lower part of the upright is made of shaped stones that are part of the man-made wall.

Quality metal detection shows a non-ferrous metal object over four feet long and one foot by one foot wide, behind the stone wall, and lower down is another smaller square box like non-ferrous metal object. A Manuscript drawn up in AD 920 states where the Holy Cross was and still is.

King Edward I of England demanded that the Cross and the Iron Crown of King Arthur be given to him in AD 1282, and he did not get these treasures.

Quite obviously they are still behind the sealed cave wall.

Again the stubborn academics refuse to co-operate.
