Until around 1790 the ancient traditional histories of Britain were firmly believed and published. The first was the tradition that the Geuantes – Gutian lead by Albyne had sailed with a fleet from Syria around 1600BC, to sieze the great Tin Island of Britain. This is evidenced from the sudden emergence of a remarkable metal working culture in Southern England and Wales which archaeologists have called the Wessex culture. The second migration was that of Brutus who sailed from Trojan Western Asia Minor in circa 504BC and again another new advanced metal working culture erupted as if out of nowhere in Britain. The archaeologists prove what the “historians” deny. Overland migrations – probably of tribal groups are also mentioned in the records, but the two main organized large scale military migrations, which were fixed in the British mind were those of Albyne and Brutus.
These British histories were arbitrarily abandoned in England during the 18th and 19th centuries. The Albyne migration was thought to involve giants – a simple misreading of Geauntes – Gutians and without evidence. The Brutus tradition was ridiculed as it involved the surviors of the wreck of the Trojan War , an academic opinion was that the city of Troy never actually existed and was instead a fairy tale place which had existed only in the imigination of Melesigenes – “Homer”. The fact that the groups known as the Ealde Cyrcenas – Old Syrians are listed in early Medieval manuscripts, and the name Surrey is traceable in foreign ancient texts as still existing, seems not to have been noticed. As for Brutus the Great Grandson of Aeneas the evidence is overwhelming as is the evidence fo the Trojan War of c650 BC once British records are understood. The even more embarrassing point that is equally ignored is that several other ancient authors were credited with writing versions of the “Iliad” and some before Homer.
It has to be understood that until very recently almost every top position in every bureaucratic or public organization in Wales was held by an Englishman. When the job was not held by an Englishman it was inevitably a stray Scot or Irishman, several successive directors of the Welsh National Museum of Wales were English. Even the first Cardiff City Marketing Manager was a Scot, and he was replaced by an American. Local knowledge was apparently unnecessary. The disasters of the Archaeology Department fo Cardiff University that crippled research of the ancient British-Welsh Kings and deliverately misdirected academia out of Wales was accomplished by a succession of Enlishmen. Mortimer Wheeler who had zero interest in Wales, and then by Leslie Alford for 19 years who had no qualification in Archaeology whatsoever, and then by the academically ludicrous Professor WH Manning who is a Chemist with no archaeological qualification. It goes on and on and on in every field even down to low level jobs, and the prevalent saying in the late 1980’s and 1990’s “you cannot get a job in Wales if you are Welsh.” It was like living in an English African colonial state.
If the history of a nation is arbitrarily abandoned then something else has to take its place to fill the void. The something else was the invention of “British barbarism”. The massed array of evidence exhibiting that the British were a technically advanced, literate, cultured, and well ordered nation, was simply thrown aside. British victories over the Romans were translated as defeats, and barbaric piratical attacks by the Romans on yet another civilised group of nations was disguised as bringing Roman order to Barbarians.
