Did The Welsh Discover America?


Not all colonials browbeat Native Americans... we also fought at the Alamo and signed the declaration of USA Independence.  Please DON'T call us English ! 

A team of historians and researchers announced today that Radio Carbon dating evidence, and the discovery of ancient British style artefacts and inscriptions in the American Midwest, provide the strongest indications yet" that British explorers, under the Prince Madoc ap Meurig, arrived in the country during the 6th Century and set up colonies there.


Research team members have known the location of burial sites of Madoc's close relatives in Wales for some time, it emerged today; but they have decided to break their self-imposed silence in order that their research be fully known and understood. DNA evidence could provide vital new leads, they say.

"We have a mass of remarkable evidence," said British historian Alan Wilson, who has been working with Jim Michael of the Ancient Kentucke Historical Association since 1989. "As experts in ancient British history, we were approached by Jim and visited locations in the Mid West with him," he added.

Many of the grave mounds found in the American mid West, including those at Bat Creek, Tennessee, are ancient British in origin and design, Wilson said. Jim Michael added, "the stone tablet found at Bat Creek in 1889 included an inscription written in Coelbren, an ancient British alphabet known and recorded by historians and bards down the ages."

Wilson said that his research had brought him into contact with very similar alphabet inscriptions in Britain, Europe and the Middle East. "The components of the alphabet derive from the earliest days of the Khumric (Welsh) people," he added, "and were used along their migration routes to Wales in antiquity."

Wilson's research partner, Baram A. Blackett, said, "once we discovered the cipher for the alphabet in recorded in texts dating to the 1500s we knew we were in business. We have translated many of these inscriptions and they all make perfect sense." Jim Michael commented that the final translation for the Bat Creek tablet was an exciting task, "especially when we knew it read, 'Madoc the ruler he is'."

Some historians have written off the evidence for Prince Madoc, the Welsh Prince who sailed to America circa 562 (AD). "They often give a false date of 1170 and this legend has replaced the facts," added Wilson. "At the moment, there is a small group of wreckers trying to steal our research and to promote this misdating. Luckily, we've done all the groundwork and have a substantial body of evidence in our favour."

"In Britain and America the academics have been slow to respond," said Jim Michael. "There is a theory that there was no European settlement here before Columbus, despite the evidence, but this is for political and theoretical reasons." In the UK, public bodies had, "failed to engage with this vital research effort," added Alan Wilson. "I think they're afraid that an independent group such as ours has made such progress. They prefer to ignore and neglect ancient British history rather than to deal with it. The Welsh people have suffered, and the opportunity to boost the economy, to bring thousands of jobs to Glamorgan and Gwent, where Madoc and his brother Arthur ll ruled, has not been exploited."

Public bodies in the US and UK must now start to actively pursue this new evidence, they say.

DNA profiling could help identify the human remains found at Bat Creek. "It could well be Madoc himself," said Blackett. "After all, the inscription was found right next to the bones, which are currently housed at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC."

Wilson, Blackett and their research team know the location of Madoc's close relatives and have made significant archaeological finds at sites nearby. "So we can use Welsh DNA evidence from the graves here, and compare it with the bone fragments in the Smithsonian," he said. "This would be of massive historical value." It is estimated that up to 20,000 jobs and hundreds of millions in tourism could be an immediate benefit in South Wales, claimed the men.

"In the American Mid West the results could be very similar," added Jim Michael.

Background

Wilson, Blackett, and Jim Michael made the identification of the Bat Creek main tumulus as the likely tomb of Prince Madoc, in January 1990. Michael has been in contact with the Smithsonian with a view to its allowing the bone fragments to be DNA tested.

There are numerous ancient British Coelbren inscriptions in the American mid West.

Skulls found in some US grave mounds are of European-Caucasian origin; they do not include an Inca bone.

There was only one Prince Madoc. He was the brother of King Arthur ll and lived during the 6th Century. This is not in doubt. Ancient British manuscripts and genealogies tell us this.

Alan Wilson and Baram Blackett have been investigating the true history of King Arthur and the Khumric-Welsh dynasty for a total of nearly 70 years. Wilsonâs interest began in 1956 and Blackett joined him in 1976, when the Arthurian Research Foundation of Great Britain was started.

They have written the best-selling The Holy Kingdom (Bantam, 1999) with Adrian Gilbert and self-published underground classics including Arthur, King of Glamorgan and Gwent, Artorius Rex Discovered, Arthur and the Charters of the Kings and Arthur, The War King (a historical novel).

The men have lectured extensively in the UK, including Manchester and Jesus Colleges at Oxford University, and Alan Wilson gave the prestigious Bemis Lecture in Boston in 1993. Wilson and Blackett were also commissioned to produce a detailed genealogy of the Bush family by former President George Bush (senior).

Nid yw pob Colonials ei gorfodi Americanwyr Brodorol ... rydym yn ymladd hefyd yn y Alamo a llofnodi'r datganiad o UDA Annibyniaeth. PEIDIWCH ffoniwch ni Saesneg! 

Cyhoeddodd Mae tîm o haneswyr ac ymchwilwyr heddiw y Radio Carbon dyddio tystiolaeth, a darganfod arteffactau ac arysgrifau arddull Prydeinig hynafol yn y Midwest Americanaidd, yn darparu'r arwyddion cryfaf eto "y fforwyr Prydeinig, o dan y Prince Madoc ap Meurig, cyrraedd yn y wlad yn ystod y 6ed ganrif a sefydlu trefedigaethau yno. 


Aelodau o'r tîm ymchwil wedi adnabod lleoliad safleoedd claddu o berthnasau agos Madog yng Nghymru ers peth amser, daeth yn amlwg heddiw; ond maent wedi penderfynu i dorri eu hunanosodedig distawrwydd er bod eu hymchwil yn hysbys ac yn deall yn llawn. Gallai tystiolaeth DNA yn darparu yn arwain newydd hanfodol, maent yn ei ddweud. 

"Mae gennym màs o dystiolaeth rhyfeddol," meddai hanesydd Prydeinig Alan Wilson, sydd wedi bod yn gweithio gyda Jim Michael o Gymdeithas Hanesyddol Hynafol Kentucke ers 1989. "Fel arbenigwyr ar hanes hynafol Prydain, roeddem yn cysylltu gan Jim ac ymweld â lleoliadau yn y Canolbarth Gorllewin gydag ef, "ychwanegodd. 

Mae llawer o'r tomenni bedd a geir yng nghanol Gorllewin America, gan gynnwys y rhai yn Ystlumod Creek, Tennessee, yn hynafol Prydain o ran tarddiad a dylunio, meddai Wilson. Ychwanegodd Jim Michael, "y dabled garreg a ddarganfuwyd yn Bat Creek yn 1889 yn cynnwys arysgrif a ysgrifennwyd yn Coelbren, gwyddor Prydeinig hynafol a elwir a'u cofnodi gan haneswyr a beirdd i lawr yr oesoedd." 

Dywedodd Wilson fod ei waith ymchwil wedi dod ag ef i gysylltiad â arysgrifau wyddor tebyg iawn ym Mhrydain, Ewrop a'r Dwyrain Canol. "Mae elfennau o'r wyddor yn deillio o ddyddiau cynharaf yr Khumric (Cymraeg) bobl," ychwanegodd, "ac yn cael eu defnyddio ar hyd eu llwybrau mudo i Gymru yn hen iawn." 

Partner ymchwil Wilson, Baram A. Blackett, meddai, "ar ôl i ni ddarganfod y cipher gyfer yr wyddor yn cofnodi mewn testunau dyddio o'r 1500au roedden ni'n gwybod ein bod yn mewn busnes. Rydym wedi cyfieithu llawer o'r arysgrifau hyn ac maent i gyd yn gwneud synnwyr perffaith." Dywedodd Jim Michael fod y cyfieithiad terfynol ar gyfer y dabled Ystlumod Creek yn dasg gyffrous, "yn enwedig pan fyddwn yn gwybod ei fod yn darllen, 'Madog tywysog ei fod yn'." 

Mae rhai haneswyr wedi ysgrifennu oddi ar y dystiolaeth ar gyfer Prince Madoc, mae'r Tywysog Cymreig a hwyliodd i America tua 562 (AD). "Maent yn aml yn rhoi dyddiad ffug o 1170 a chwedl hon wedi disodli'r ffeithiau," ychwanegodd Wilson. "Ar hyn o bryd, mae grŵp bychan o difetha'n ceisio dwyn ein hymchwil ac i hyrwyddo misdating hwn. Yn ffodus, yr ydym wedi gwneud yr holl y seiliau ac mae ganddynt gorff sylweddol o dystiolaeth yn ein plaid." 

"Ym Mhrydain ac America mae'r academyddion wedi bod yn araf i ymateb," meddai Jim Michael. "Mae yna ddamcaniaeth nad oedd unrhyw anheddiad Ewropeaidd yma cyn Columbus, er gwaethaf y dystiolaeth, ond mae hyn yn am resymau gwleidyddol a damcaniaethol." Yn y DU, cyrff cyhoeddus oedd, "methu ymgysylltu â'r ymdrech ymchwil hanfodol," ychwanegodd Alan Wilson. "Rwy'n credu eu bod yn ofni hynny. Mae'n well ganddynt grŵp annibynnol fel ni wedi gwneud cynnydd o'r fath ei anwybyddu ac esgeulustod hen hanes Prydain yn hytrach nag i ddelio ag ef. Mae'r bobl yng Nghymru wedi dioddef, a'r cyfle i roi hwb i'r economi, i dod â miloedd o swyddi i Forgannwg a Gwent, lle mae Madog a'i frawd Arthur ll diystyru peidio, wedi cael ei ddefnyddio. "

Erbyn hyn mae'n rhaid i gyrff cyhoeddus yn yr Unol Daleithiau a'r Deyrnas Unedig yn dechrau i fynd ati i fynd ar drywydd y dystiolaeth newydd, maent yn ei ddweud. 

Gallai proffilio DNA helpu i nodi olion dynol a ddarganfuwyd yn Bat Creek. "Gallai fod yn hawdd fod Madog ei hun," meddai Blackett. "Wedi'r cyfan, mae'r arysgrif Daethpwyd o hyd i'r dde nesaf at y esgyrn, sy'n cael eu cadw ar hyn o bryd yn y Sefydliad Smithsonian yn Washington DC." 

Wilson, Blackett ac mae eu tîm ymchwil yn adnabod y lleoliad perthnasau agos Madog ac wedi gwneud darganfyddiadau archeolegol sylweddol ar safleoedd cyfagos. "Felly, gallwn ddefnyddio tystiolaeth DNA Cymreig o'r beddau yma, a'i gymharu â'r darnau asgwrn yn y Smithsonian," meddai. "Byddai hyn o werth hanesyddol enfawr." Amcangyfrifir y gallai hyd at 20,000 o swyddi a cannoedd o filiynau mewn twristiaeth fod yn fantais uniongyrchol yn Ne Cymru, yn honni y dynion. 

"Yn y Canolbarth Gorllewin America gallai'r canlyniadau fod yn debyg iawn," ychwanegodd Jim Michael. 

cefndir 

Wilson, Blackett, a Jim Michael gwneud adnabod y prif garnedd Ystlumod Creek fel y bedd tebygol o Prince Madog, ym mis Ionawr 1990 Mae Michael wedi bod mewn cysylltiad â'r Smithsonian gyda golwg ar ei ganiatáu i'r darnau o esgyrn i fod prawf DNA. 

Mae yna nifer o arysgrifau Coelbren Prydeinig hynafol yng nghanol Gorllewin America. 

Canfu penglogau mewn rhai tomenni bedd Unol Daleithiau o darddiad Ewropeaidd-Caucasian; nid ydynt yn cynnwys asgwrn Inca. 

Dim ond un Prince Madog. Roedd yn frawd y Brenin Arthur II ac yn byw yn ystod y 6ed ganrif. Nid yw hyn yn amheuaeth. Llawysgrifau ac achau Prydeinig hynafol yn dweud wrthym hyn. 

Alan Wilson ac Baram Blackett wedi bod yn ymchwilio y gwir hanes y Brenin Arthur a'r llinach Khumric-Gymraeg am gyfanswm o bron i 70 mlynedd. Dechreuodd diddordeb Wilsonâs yn 1956 ac ymunodd Blackett ef yn 1976, pan fydd y Sefydliad Ymchwil Arthuraidd Prydain Fawr dechreuwyd. 

Maent wedi ysgrifennu y gorau gwerthu Mae'r Deyrnas Sanctaidd (Bantam, 1999) gyda Adrian Gilbert a chlasuron hunan-gyhoeddi o dan y ddaear, gan gynnwys Arthur, Brenin Morgannwg a Gwent, Darganfod Artorius Rex, Arthur a Siarteri y Brenhinoedd ac Arthur, The War Brenin (a nofel hanesyddol). 

Mae'r dynion wedi darlithio yn helaeth yn y DU, gan gynnwys Manceinion a Cholegau Iesu ym Mhrifysgol Rhydychen, a rhoddodd Alan Wilson Ddarlith Bemis fawreddog yn Boston yn 1993. Wilson a oedd Blackett hefyd comisiynu i gynhyrchu achau manwl o'r teulu Bush gan gyn-Arlywydd George Bush (uwch).
