A Green Hill Far Away…Without a City Wall

An article first published on the Song of Ffraed private, and then on ellisctaylor.com

Introduction

I have more to add regarding Alan Wilson’s proposal that Jesus is buried in West Wales.

Besides Gilbert’s, Wilson’s and Blackett’s, The Holy Kingdom, I’ve also been dipping into Australian sleuth author, Tony Bushby’s heretical tome, The Bible Fraud. I’ve no idea if they are aware of one another’s work.

Who of them is more right than the other I have no idea but both parties have carried out decades of deep and committed research and come up with masses of detailed information which includes several major and minor agreements and contradictions.

Sea She-Dragon

A great presence of energy, a sacred flow (a She-Dragon) weaves through the 3 counties of the ancient kingdom of Deheubarth, in S.W. Cymru: Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion, from St. Bride’s Bay and back again.

“Except for a very few places, the coast line from Marloes Sands to St. Bride’s Haven hugs this Dragon’s back. Gaining Her attention are several raths or forts/enclosures, a prehistoric flint factory, as well as the likely former sites of a lost church and chapel.
