I’m intrigued by historians, Alan Wilson’s and Baram Blackett’s contention that Empress Helen brought ‘the true cross’ to Dyfed and concealed it in a cave here. Y Ddraig Ffraed flows through this cave.
As well, Alan Wilson relates whispered stories he heard from the locals, when he was a kid living for a time with his uncle on a farm near Dinas Cross. In hushed and reverent close company they told how the old folk knew, and passed down through the generations, an even greater secret…that Jesus was buried nearby. This site is not on the dragon.
The following are some of the posts I’ve made to do with these matters and more, on Britain’s Hidden History FB page:

First published on my main website.
It was a blissful, bright and sunny Easter morning and the blackbirds and robins had been singing since dawn. Kria, the buzzard, wheeled lazily in the unblemished sky, ravens rolled above the exalting treetops when, too acute to perceive with human ears, the familiar voice of the Goddess beckoned me to ‘the Sanctuary’.

A short clip from a talk Ellis gave to the audience of the Ammach conference in the spring of 2013. In 1997, Ellis visited the famous megalithic site, for the first time in 40 years. He wanted to see how the site had changed. He remembers visiting Stonehenge at about the age of 5, when it was in an open field.
