Summary

Summary

Lost in the mists of time and legend is the true history of Britain before the arrival of the Romans and after their departure. Using ancient historical records, this book asserts that Britain was never fully conquered by the Romans but retained its culture as its royal families intermarried with the caesars. Two British kings, both named Arthur, became the single King Arthur of myth and legend. As a result of 40 years of research, this book reveals the location of the graves of both Arthurs, the burial place of the "true cross of Christ," and many other mysteries. It challenges many orthodox beliefs perpetuated by a church that long ago lost touch with its roots.
