Jesus from 12 to 30 - Where was He?

The History evidence is Britain!

We continue with the study by John D. Keyser



JESUS' MISSING YEARS!


     The pages of the Bible are strangely silent concerning
Jesus' life between the ages of 12 and 30. The only incident of
His childhood is to be found in Luke 2, where He goes missing and
is found sitting in the midst of the teachers at the Temple:

"And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem
according to the custom of the feast. When they had finished the
days, as they returned, the boy Jesus lingered behind in
Jerusalem. And Joseph and His mother did not know it; but
supposing Him to have been in the company, they went a day's
journey, and sought Him among their relatives and acquaintances.
So when they did not find Him, they returned to Jerusalem,
seeking Him. Now so it was that after three days they found Him
in the Temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both
listening to them and asking them questions. And all who heard
Him were astonished at His understanding and answers" - Verses
42-47.


     The last mention in the New Testament of the boy Jesus is
found in Luke 1:52, which simply states: "And Jesus increased in
wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men." Then there is
a gap of eighteen years in the life of Christ - eighteen years in
which the New Testament is totally silent about the activities
and whereabouts of the growing Messiah. Most people have thought
that Jesus lived in the town of Nazareth, working as a carpenter
until He commenced His ministry at the age of thirty. However,
there are a number of implications in the New Testament that
indicate otherwise - that indicate He was OUT OF THE CONFINES OF
PALESTINE during these years!


     Notice what Luke says in Luke 4:1622: "So He came to
Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He
went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read
... And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on
Him ... So all bore witness to Him, and marvelled at the gracious
words which proceeded out of His mouth. And they said, is this
not Joseph's son?" 
     There are a couple of things that stand out here. First of
all, the use of the expression, "where He had been brought up,"
seems to imply that while Christ had spent His childhood in
Nazareth, He had not continued to live there. Obviously, He had
not lived there for some time. This impression is reinforced by
the question His hearers ask in the synagogue: "Is this not
Joseph's son?" - almost as if they were in doubt regarding His
identity. 
     The same incident is recorded in Matthew 13, with
added questions posed by the synagogue worshippers: "Is this not
the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His
brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, are
they not all with us? WHERE then did this Man get all these
things?" (Verses 55-56). Clearly, they were not very familiar
with Jesus! He was such a STRANGER to them that the people could
not even refer to Him by name, but only by His relationship to
the other members of His family whom they knew. "WHERE then did
THIS MAN get all these things" clearly indicates that Christ did
not receive His knowledge in the town of Nazareth!

     Let us now investigate another passage in the New Testament
which indicates Christ's absence from the area: 

"After they arrived in Capernaum the men collecting the TWO
DRACHMAS [tax] approached Peter and said: 'Does your teacher not
pay the TWO DRACHMAS' [tax] He said: 'Yes.' However, when he
entered the house Jesus got ahead of him by saying: 'What do you
think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth receive duties
or HEAD TAX? From their sons or from the STRANGERS?' When he
said: 'From the STRANGERS'! Jesus said to him: 'Really, then the
sons are tax-free. But that we do not cause them to stumble, you
go to the sea, cast a fishhook, and take the first fish coming up
and, when you open its mouth, you will find a STATER COIN. Take
that and give it to them FOR ME AND YOU'" (Matthew 17:24-27, The
Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures).

     In a number of Bible translations they call the "TWO
DRACHMAS" Temple tax, however the Temple tax was paid with a
Jewish shekel -- a coin especially minted for that purpose. In
the above passage we find Jesus being asked about His liability
to pay the two drachmas or "strangers' tax" which was a Roman
poll-tax levied against FOREIGN VISITORS to Capernaum. Most
often, these were merchants and traders who conducted their
business there. Evidently the tax collector considered Jesus a
"stranger" or a "foreign visitor." When we consider this
incident, there is more than a suggestion that Jesus had been
absent from Palestine for a considerable length of time.
     The same conclusion becomes apparent when we consider John
the Baptist's reaction to Christ. Raymond Capt explains:

"When Jesus appears upon the banks of the Jordan River where John
was baptizing, the Baptist seems scarcely to recognize Jesus,
even though they were first cousins and must have known each
other during their early childhood. Finally, John recognizes who
the STRANGER is and exclaims: 'Behold the Lamb of God!' Now, if
Jesus had been living in Nazareth all those years, surely John
would not have appeared puzzled as to His identity. Then, later,
John sent two of his disciples to make a peculiar query: 'Are you
he who should come or look we for another?' Apparently, the two
had not met for years since John displays a profoundly IMPERFECT
KNOWLEDGE of the One whom he was proclaiming" -- "The Traditions
of Glastonbury," p.6.


     There is yet another incident in the New Testament indicat-
ing that Jesus was absent from His homeland for a considerable
period of time. In the book of John we read the following:

"Philip found Nathaniel and said to him, 'We have found Him of
whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote - Jesus of
Nazareth, the son of Joseph.' And Nathaniel said to him, 'Can
anything good come out of Nazareth?' Philip said to him, 'Come
and see.' Jesus saw Nathaniel coming toward this, and said of
him, 'Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!'
Nathaniel said to Him HOW DO YOU KNOW ME?' Jesus answered and
said to him, 'Before Philip called you, when you were under the
fig tree, I saw you'" - John 1:15-18.

     Nathanael lived in Cana of Galilee, which is located about
five miles from the city of Nazareth. If Jesus had been living at
Nazareth during his youth - some eighteen years - it seems very
strange that Nathaniel would not have known Him. Both Nathanael
and Philip should have been acquainted with Jesus' command of the
Scriptures - it would have been known far and wide! Not only
that, but would the very Son of God have no effect upon the
community in which He supposedly lived for eighteen years? The
implication can only be that Jesus had not been in Palestine for
a long period of time.

     Now, naturally, this brings to mind the following questions:


     If Jesus was absent from Palestine for what appears to be a
considerable period of time, then WHERE was He between the ages
of 12 and 30? Is there any evidence that sheds light on his
whereabouts during these years? The answer is a definite YES!

The Traditions of Cornwall

"Legends exist that Jesus travelled far and wide. The religious
teachers of INDIA assert He had dwelt among them studying there
for three years before travelling on to what is now Tibet.
Ancient religious books of India record Jesus visiting the
Himalayan kingdom of Nepal. Other traditions take Jesus to Egypt"
("The Traditions of Glastonbury," p.7). 

     While it is certainly possible that Jesus did visit other
countries, the STRONGEST and MOST PERSISTENT traditions place a
young Jesus in CORNWALL and the ISLE OF AVALON near the little
Somerset town of Glastonbury in England!

"A number of legends link the boy Jesus, and Joseph of Arimathea
His uncle, with THE TIN MINES OF CORNWALL. One story relates how
Jesus and Joseph often anchored their ship in the natural harbor
at THE MOUTH OF THE CAMEL RIVER to come ashore and collect water
for the ship. 'Nearby, is an ancient well that since olden times
has been known as 'JESUS' WELL.' It was regarded as having
healing powers. For centuries pilgrims came to the well and the
remains of a chapel, erected over it, are still discernible.
Records of its existence go back to the 13th century, but even
then, the date and origin of its name is unknown" ("The
Traditions of Glastonbury," p.29).

     Another story tells how Jesus, visiting the mines of
Cornwall with His uncle Joseph, taught the miners how to extract
tin from the ground and PURGE IT of the ore wolframite. At the
same time, according to local tradition, Joseph also taught the
boy Jesus how to extract the tin and purge it. Is it not
significant that Malachi the prophet, in his prophecy and analogy
of Jesus, casts Christ in the ROLE OF A REFINER OF METALS
(Malachi 3:2-3)? Malachi mentions silver, and it is a fact that
silver was often extracted from Mendip lead during the time of
Christ.

     Associated with the mines of Cornwall are the mines
of the MENDIP HILLS, north of Glastonbury - in the county of
Somerset, England. During Roman times these mines produced lead,
copper and other metals which form alloys with tin. The great
war-machine of the Roman Empire consumed vast quantities of these
alloys in the production of weapons. There are traditions among
the people of the hill country of Somerset that Joseph, after
first seeking tin from the SCILLIES (islands off of Cornwall) and
in Cornwall itself, came to the Mendips - accompanied on a number
of occasions by a YOUTHFUL JESUS.


     E. Raymond Capt notes that "at the parish Church of PRIDDY,
high on the top of the Mendips, they have an old saying: 'As sure
as OUR LORD WAS AT PRIDDY' And a carol sung by the children of
PRIDDY begins: 'JOSEPH WAS A TIN MERCHANT, a tin merchant, a tin
merchant,' and goes on to describe him arriving FROM THE SEA IN A
BOAT [WITH THE BOY JESUS]" ("The Traditions of Glastonbury,"
p.34).

     St.Just, in CORNWALL, also has LEGENDS OF JESUS COMING TO
THE DISTRICT. Among the many traditions is one that relates the
story of a STONE Jesus stepped on when he first landed there. In
1932, while cleaning out a blocked CULVERT, workmen came across a
flat stone covered with curious and unintelligible markings.
Since this stone was blocking the flow of water from a well known
as the "CHRISTENING WELL." the people of St.Just immediately
thought that it was the one of legend - the one Christ stepped on
when He landed. They reasoned that the strange markings on it
were placed there later when the identity of their visitor became
known. "Even before the finding of the stove, the old folks would
tell visitors to the area the Holy Legend of Christ COMING THERE
AS A BOY WITH HIS UNCLE. They spoke of the legend and it was as
much of your life was worth to express any doubt about Christ
coming to ST.JUST." (Ibid., p.33).

     The old Ordinance maps of the west part of CORNWALL show two
rich lodes or veins of TIN, bearing the names "CORPUS CHRISTI"
(BODY OF CHRIST) and "WHEEL OF JESUS." ("Wheel" is an old Cornish
word for "mine").

     Another LINK between JESUS AND THE TIN TRADE OF CORNWALL is
found in St.Anthony-in-Roseland. Here is located an almost
unknown structure called "Place Manor Church" with a Pre-Norman
stone arch over the South Door. Carved in this arch are ancient
pictographs - estimated to be more than a 1000 years old -
telling the story of Jesus and His uncle coming to the 'Place'
for tin. According to the pictographs their boat got into
difficulties during a storm, and was washed ashore on the
headland where the modern lighthouse now stands. The operators of
a local trading post managed to bring Joseph's damaged boat into
the sheltered side of the headland, by Place, where repairs were
carried out. Joseph and Jesus stayed at the trading post while
the boat was being repaired. The pictographs go on to say that
before they left the area, they erected a stone with an account
of their visit there.

     Scattered throughout the tin mining areas of Cornwall are to
be found a number of very ancient CELTIC CROSSES called "TUNIC
CROSSES." These crosses, found alongside roads and in church
cemeteries, are of a type found NOWHERE ELSE IN THE BRITISH ISLES
-- or anywhere else in the world, for that matter! States E.
Raymond Capt: "On one side of the cross is a crudely cut
Christian cross and on the other, THE FIGURE of what can only be
A BOY, DRESSED IN A KNEE-LENGTH TUNIC. Here we have NOT a
crucified Christ, nailed to a cross, but A YOUTH WITH HIS ARMS
OUTSTRETCHED IN AN ATTITUDE OF BLESSING. These crosses may well
portray the AGE-OLD MEMORY of the visits of the young Jesus to
these shores in the company of His uncle Joseph" ("The Traditions
of Glastonbury," p.34).

     Apart from the places already mentioned, West County
traditions also associate St.Michael's Mount, Redruth and
Glastonbury with a visit from Jesus. Ivor C. Fletcher uncovered a
tradition in Upper Galilee that tells of a visit to Glastonbury:

"Among the Maronite and Catluei villagers of Upper Galilee the
tradition lingers that Jesus as a youth became a shipwright on a
trading vessel from TYRE, one of the biblical 'ships of
Tarshish.' According to the story, He was storm-bound on the
WESTERN COASTS OF ENGLAND throughout the winter. The location of
the visit is given as 'THE SUMMERLAND,' a name often used in
ancient times for the modern COUNTY OF SOMERSET. A district as
sociated with this visit to Somerset is known as 'PARADISE.' This
place is sometimes found on old maps of the area" - "The
Incredible History of God's True Church," p 51).

Jesus at Avalon

     The strongest and the most persistent traditions place the
young Jesus on the mystical island of AVALON - later to become
the little Somerset county town of Glastonbury.   Here the story
goes, Jesus and His uncle constructed a wattle hut similar to
those at the nearby Glastonbury Lake Village. The site they chose
was at the base of a hill from which ran a spring of water, later
known as Chalice Well.
     In early times AVALON was a small island at the back of a
large, marshy estuary known as the Uxella. The estuary was
covered by waters from the Bristol Channel, and received the
waters of the rivers Axe, Parret and the Brue. The River Brue was
a navigable river from the foot of the nearby Mendip Hills to the
sea - just south of Bristol.
     Rising above the landscape is the hill, known today as
Glastonbury Tor. Once a place of Druid worship, the 500 foot tor
may have also been the chief stronghold of one Mel, king of
the "Aestive Regio" (the Summer Kingdom) of Somerset. It is
likely that the tor strong-hold was the political center of a
much wider area than Glastonbury.

     Archaeologist E. Raymond Cap notes that "the earliest name
of Glastonbury was 'YNIS-WITRIN' (nys gyrdyn - British;
Glaestingabyrig - Anglo-Saxon) or the 'GLASSY IS LAND.' Later,
when it was found to be fruitful and ideal for the cultivation of
apples, it was called 'INSULA AVALONIA,' or Isle of the Apple
Trees. AVAL, in Welsh [Celtic], means apple. Just how this area
came to be known by the name 'GLASTONBURY' remains in doubt. One
suggestion is that the origin of Glastonbury is in
'Glaestingaburgh,' the hill fort of the Flaestings, a family who
settled in the area. Another, and more accepted theory is that
the CELTIC word for green is 'Glas' and hill is 'ton.' GLASTON is
therefore the green hill,' so named after the tor, or mount that
dominates the landscape" ("The Traditions of Glastonbury," p.13).

     When the Saxons arrived in the 6th century A.D., they built
a town about a half mile from the tor and obtained a charter, to 
an  "borough" or "bury" to the  original name - thus
"Glaston-bury."     
 
     Tradition and written testimony assert that Jesus did indeed
reside on the Island of Avalon, and there created a building to
live in which was later called a "church" A wealth of ancient
writers, both ecclesiastical and secular, affirm this. For more
than a thousand years it was commonly spoken of as "the church
[home, house[ built NOT BY HUMAN ART." Augustine, the Catholic
monk who was sent to evangelize Britain by Pope Gregory I, was
quite familiar with the facts and the existence of this
structure. In a letter to Pope Gregory (Epistolae ad Gregorium
Papam) Augustine writes with obvious delight and at great length
about the "church."

"In the Western confines of Britain there is a certain ROYAL
ISLAND of large extent, surrounded by water, abounding in all the
beauties of nature and necessaries of life. In it the first
Neophytes of Catholic Law, GOD BEFOREHAND ACQUAINTED THEM, found
a church constructed by no human art, BUT DIVINELY CONSTRUCTED,
OR BY THE HANDS OF CHRIST HIMSELF, for the salvation of His
people. The Almighty has made it manifest by many miracles and
mysterious visitations that He continues to watch over it as
sacred to Himself and to Mary, the Mother of God."

     Augustine's statement in his letter is verified by the Saxon
historian, William of Malmesbury, who wrote in the twelfth
century. His last work, "De Antiquitate Glastoniae," mentions the
little wattle house. Other works, such as "De orlgine Ecclesiae
Britannicae" by Elvan of Avalon (a British scholar educated in
the School of Joseph of Arimathea at Avalon - circa 180 A.D.);
"Relat. Hist. de rebus Anglicis Act," by Pitsaeus; "De Sancro
Joseph at Aramathia," by Capgrave; "The Magna Tabula of
Glastonbury," at Haworth Castle; "John of Glastonbury," by
Hearne; Bede's "Ecclesiastical History;" the British historian
Gildas and Geoffrey of Monmouth also make  mention of the wattle
"church" built by Christ.

     William of Malmesbury  also recites the well-known story of
St.David who went to Glastonbury in 540 A.D. In 546 A.D. David
enclosed the original wattle structure in LEAD in order to pre- 
serve it, and erected a pillar on the site with a brass tablet
bearing record to the fact.

     With the passage of time the little wattle house became an
object of deep veneration by all, and many swore oaths by the old
"church" very much like people today swear an oath on the Bible.

William of Malmesbury wrote:

"The church of which we are speaking (Glastonbury) from its
antiquity called by the Angles, by way of distinction, "EALDE
CHICHE," that is the "OLD CHURCH" of wattle work at first,
SAVOURED SOMEWHAT OF HEAVENLY SANCTITY EVEN FROM ITS VERY
FOUNDATION, and exhaled it over the whole country, claiming
SUPERIOR REVERENCE, though the structure was mean.... Men of that
province had no oath more frequent, or more sacred than to swear
by the Old Church, fearing the swiftest vengeance on their
perjury in this respect. In the meantime it is clear that the
depository of so many saints may be deservedly called an HEAVENLY
SANCTUARY UPON EARTH...who there more especially chose to await
the day of resurrection under the protection of the Mother of
God" - "Acts of the Kings of the English," bk. I, ch.2.

     For centuries before the island of AVALON was renamed
GLASTONBURY by the invading Saxons, two names were frequently
found in the writings of the old scribes - clearly referring to
something of great importance. Usually no explanation is given,
indicating that the people of the day were quite familiar with
the names. "To the Priesthood and historians of those enthralling
years, the TWO NAMES employed designating the particular place
were 'SECRETUM DOMINF' and 'DOMUS DEI.' The first title means
'THE SECRET OF OUR LORD' and the second, 'THE HOUSE OR HOME OF!
GOD.' The explanation given is that the LITTLE WATTLE TEMPLE WAS
THE HOUSE, OR HOME OF GOD, BECAUSE THEREIN HE DWELT, and the
Secret of the Lord was the Dowry and dedication of the same to
His mother" ("The Drama of the Lost Disciples," p.144).

     This is not myth, legend or unsupported tradition. The title
is officially recorded in the ancient names found in the famous
DOMESDAY BOOK - a document that embodies the results of a
statistical survey of England carried out by order of William I,
King of England. The survey, made in 1086, was an attempt to
register the landed wealth of the country in a systematic
fashion, in order to determine the revenues due to the king. The
term DOMESDAY is a corruption of DOOMS-DAY (the day of the final
judgment), and the work was so named because its judgments
regarding levies and assessments were final and irrevocable. The
entry says: "The DOMUS DEI, in the great monastery of
Glastonbury, called 'The Secret of Our Lord.' This Glastonbury
Church possesses in its own ville XII hides of land which have
never paid tax."

The Education of Christ! 

     Finally, there is evidence that Jesus attended school in
Britain! During the first century A.D. Britain was known
throughout the Roman world for the excellence of its educational
system. Gildas states, in the "Cottonian Manuscript," that the
British universities of Jesus' time were the largest in the world
- both in size and in attendance - with a listing of sixty large
universities and an average attendance of over sixty thousand
students! The wealthy and the aristocracy of the Greek and Roman
worlds sent their children to Britain to study law, science and
religion.
     The wise men of India, in their ancient books known as the
"Rig-Vedas," make mention that Britain was a great center of
religious learning. The great library at the abbey in Glastonbury
housed the largest known collection of books outside the library
of Alexandria in Egypt! The fact is, ancient Britain had then
acquired great stature in the world,  with institutions of
learning and attendance rivalling those of advanced nations
today!

Ivor C. Fletcher expounds on this:

"Britain, during the first century A.D., would have been an ideal
place to study and develop skills in various aspects of the
building industry. Eumenius states that British architects were
in great demand on the Continent during his day. Several writers
mention the skills of British craftsmen, especially in the metal
working industries. The enamelling process was invented in
Britain. A superb example of the local 'La Tens' art is the
famous Glastonbury bowl which was produced about the time of
Christ. There is little doubt that Jesus could have developed
many skills from British craftsmen" - "The Incredible History of
God's True Church,  pp.56-57).

     The Bible indicates that Jesus was a public speaker par ex-
cellence. He had a tremendous impact on the crowds that gathered
around Him, "and they were struck with awe at his mode of
instruction." (Mark 1:22), Not only was He a good speaker - He
was also an EDUCATED speaker! The New Testament records that the
people of His home town of Nazareth were astonished at His
preaching: "So all bore witness to Him, and marvelled at the
gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth" (Luke 4:22).

Remarks Ivor C.Fletcher:

"It is very clear that not all of His formal education and public
speaking training had been received at Nazareth. If His training
had been merely the product of a local school or college then the
people would not have been so astonished. It is unlikely that
higher education of that calibre was ever available in a
provincial town such as Nazareth. Nathanael implied this in his
remark. 'Can any good thing proceed from Nazareth?' (John 1:46).
Jerusalem was the academic headquarters of the nation, yet Jesus
had not trained among the professional public speakers here
either. Mark relates that: 'HE TAUGHT THEM, as possessing
authority, and not as the scribes' (Mark 1:22).
The Jews were deeply puzzled by this very fact. They asked the
question: 'How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?'
(John 7:15).
The Weymouth translation renders this: 'How does this man know
anything of books,'  they said, 'although he has NEVER BEEN at
any of the schools?'" - Ibid., p.57.

     The Bible indicates that Jesus was an educated man and a
superb public speaker. It is evident that He did not receive such
an education at any college in Galilee or Judea However, He most
certainly could have received such an education in Britain! If
Jesus had visited Britain, and was educated there ACCORDING TO
THE TRADITIONS, He would have found some sixty colleges or
universities to choose from. Ivor C.Fletcher comments on the
QUALITY of the British educational system:

"The educational standards were such that students came not only
from the British nobility but also from several FOREIGN NATIONS.
It is said that even PONTIUS PILATE, as a young man, studied in
Britain. A very high standard in oratory or public speaking was
often attained by first century Briton. Tacitus records on
a word by word basis the speeches of several high ranking Britons
of his day. Such speeches were often colourful, stirring and
inspiring, much like, in some ways, the speeches of Jesus.
A few hundred years before the time of Christ, the Greek writer
STRABO described an EDUCATED BRITON of his day, Abaris, as
follows: 'He was easy in his address; agreeable in his
conversation; active in his dispatch and secret in his management
of great affairs; diligent in the quest of wisdom; fond of
friendship; trusting very little to fortune; yet having the
entire confidence of others, and trusted with everything for his
prudence. HE SPOKE GREEK WITH FLUENCY THAT YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT
THAT HE HAD BEEN BROUGHT UP IN THE LYCEUM.'
It may be mere coincidence but Jesus had far more of the
QUALITIES AND TALENTS OF AN EDUCATED BRITON than He ever did of
an educated Jew of the same period" - Ibid., p.58.

     It is NOT mere coincidence - Eastern and Western traditions
claim Jesus completed His education in Britain!

     William Blake, British poet born in London in 1757, was
familiar with the stories associated with Glastonbury and the
presence of Christ in the British Isles. In his beautiful poem
entitled "Jerusalem," Blake pens his thoughts in a tender and
loving way:

And did those feet in ancient time

Walk upon England's mountains green?

And was the Holy Lamb of God

On England's pleasant pastures seen?

And did the Countenance Divine

Shine forth upon our clouded hills?

And was Jerusalem builded here

Among those dark Satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold!

Bring me my arrows of desire!

Bring me my spear! O clouds unfold!

Bring me my chariot of fire!

I will not cease from mental fight

Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,

Till we have built Jerusalem'

In England's green and pleasant land.

NOTE:

For you who have already studied many of the studies of ancient
Britain on this Website (and if you have not please do so) all
that has been presented will not shock or amaze you. What is not
taught much at all today, is the ancient first century history of
Britain. Truly is was a great nations even then. Tacitus, the
Roman historian writes many pages on the proud mighty nation of
the British and how they fought and defeated the Roman army time
and time again. He relates the greatness of Caractacus, giving
the words of his speech before the Roman Emperor, and how Rome
was is such admiration of him that they spared his life (only
captured by them through trickery - a Samson and Delilah story).
He relates how the noble Scottish clans fought on after
Caractacus was captured, and never did bow to Rome.

Tacitus' book and his written history can still be obtained from
your Public Library.

In London there is the magnificent statue of the famous Boadicea
in her chariot. She was the woman who led the ancient British in
war against the Romans before Caractacus. Her armies defeated the
Romans numerous times. The Romans had not encountered armies with
chariots in Europe. The British chariots had swords fixed to
their wheels, to cut down the enemy soldiers or horses. They were
master chariot makers and horsemen.

Decades before, the British defeated the great Julias Caesar
TWICE - after he had conquered all of Europe. The first defeat
was on the sea shore, the Roman army never got further than the
sea shore. The British were waiting for him on the banks of the
sea and drove him back to Europe.

On this Website you will find the truth of the matter regarding
the Druids. You will find on this Website, the truth of when
Christianity came to Britain, and how relatively easy it was to
convert the whole nation and the Druids to Christianity. You will
discover that it was the British nations that was FIRST in the
whole world to make Christianity the national religion.

Much indeed has never been correctly or widely taught as that of
the truth of the first century British nation.

This Website gives restoration to much of that true history.

What you have read so far, and what other history of Britain is
on this Website, makes fascinating reading and gives an insight
into the first century A.D. that little have knowledge about.
