|King Brutus, Lemnos stele written in the ancient Coelbren alphabet|
Free Planet has written (more than) one or two blogposts about Alan Wilson and Baram Blackett's assertions that the descendants of the sixty ancient Kings of Britain kicked out the Romans (that the southern English tribes invited into Britain) and pursued them across Europe in the fourth century, at their head one King Arthur.
Wilson & Blackett certainly have a colourful history with a long list of petty crimes/accusations attached to their cause but they claim to be able to apply their Coelbren alphabet cypher to ancient Etruscan and Rhaetian and Syrian inscribed artefacts found in their native countries and in UK and in USA and then use an older version of modern Welsh to resolve the translations into non-nonsense English. That in itself should absolve them, no?
Hebrew Nations website has covered their claims in great (sceptical) detatil and the Sovereign Wales website has probably the most concise re-imagining of Wilson & Blackett's historical British timeline, it's really fascinating stuff if you've never seen it before. Even the BBC reported that the DNA of the Welsh suggests that they are much older and more distinct from the majority of Brits. And we've all wondered at Tom Jones' curly hair and dark complexion...
Wilson & Blackett also make the grander-scale claim that, "The Welsh aren't (nor were they ever, mainland European i.e.) Celtic," they are Khumric - a people of the (mediterranean) sea. Did these trader-invaders speak Aramaic? Phonecian? Pelasgic? What did the Khumric language even sound like and why does Welsh have such linguistic affinity with Hebrew?
