Dr Liam Kelly PhD, SJ is an internationally renowned scholar of Biblical history who has spent a lifetime researching pre-Christian documents hidden in the Vatican archives. In a diminished Vatican where hardly anyone even understands Latin anymore, he is the last of a past era of scholars who spoke a dozen ancient languages.  In order that the old knowledge might not be lost Dr Kelly, is charged to compile a plain language dossier of the secrets of the archives – in the course of which he uncovers startling secrets of the Pyramids and the meaning of Stonehenge, which are unexpectedly linked. 

‘It’s all heresy, the work of the devil’, pronounced Cardinal Borgia. ‘We must do everything to ensure it is kept secret to protect the faithful.’ 

‘But it’s true,’ protested Liam, ‘we have a duty to reveal the truth. And there’s more, I know who built Stonehenge and what it was for.’

But the story can never be told because twisted through the threads of pagan history are other dark secrets the Church does not want to reveal. Dr Kelly wrestled with his inner demons, torn between loyalty to his Church and the temptation of the truth. At risk to his personal safety he defies the Church hierarchy to find a way to reveal the old knowledge of pagan mysteries.

All over the British Isles natural springs appear.  Many are regarded as holy and are reputed to possess healing properties.  Among the most venerated of these healing waters are the Red and White Springs that flow from the base of the famed Glastonbury Tor. 

In The Red & White Springs of Avalon the authors draw on alchemy and other spiritual traditions to explain the hidden powers of these two remarkable springs.  They show how these ancient wisdom traditions provide important keys to the initiatory and healing secrets of Avalon.  This fascinating exploration of Chalice Well, the Tor and the White Spring has become an essential guide to the mysteries of Glastonbury.

Countless myths and legends attest to the ancient sanctity of the Isle of Avalon. Yet archaeologists have long been puzzled by the absence of material evidence for prehistoric activity upon the hills of Glastonbury. This book provides decisive proof of the island’s especial importance to our distant ancestors, by showing how its unique conjunction of landscape with key celestial movements would have indicated its extraordinary sanctity to Neolithic peoples, even to their Mesolithic forebears. Because of the intimate relationship between its holy hills and the pathways of sun, moon and stars, Avalon would have been understood as an exceptionally potent spiritual sanctuary, a place of otherworldly power.

Nicholas Mann and Philippa Glasson reveal the site of an ancient astronomical observatory at the heart of the Avalonian landscape. They show how prehistoric sky-watchers appear to have modelled key parts of the island, including the Tor and the summit of St Edmund’s Hill, to refine their celestial observations. The Isle of Avalon was truly an ancient “temple of the stars”.

Following on from The God-Kings of Europe, The God-Kings of England, continues the Saga of the great Ulvungar Dynasty. It shows that there was a plan to counter the hegemony of Roman Christianity, by counter attacking, first with Viking raids and later by conquest and settlement. This is the tale of the Ulvungars and their attempt to conquer England, under the leadership of Danish Kings such as Sweyn Forkbeard and Canute. They were opposed by their Odonic Anglo-Saxon cousins such as Alfred and Aethelred. The Ulvungars would take control by force of arms. One branch would take England; another would take control of Normandy. Ultimately, they would combine after the Battle of Hastings in the Anglo-Norman Dynasty that would found the Angevin Empire.

This book shows the web of marriages and alliances and the detailed planning that went into the final push that culminated at the Battle of Hastings. It shows how the Davidic line of Jesus was protected by the Odonic Kings of England and Dukes of Normandy.

In the appendices the author traces and explains who William the Conqueror’s real ancestors were and shows detailed genealogies.

GWYN - Ancient god of Glastonbury and key to the Glastonbury Zodiac is the debut book written and illustrated by Glastonbury based artist and researcher, Yuri Leitch. Adorned with many of his own beautiful illustrations, and quotes from arcane medieval Welsh manuscripts, the author hopes that this book will educate, uplift and inspire the reader's imagination.

'Gwyn' is the culmination of six years of contemplation, historical research and investigation into the sacred landscape of Somerset's unique landmark, Glastonbury Tor.

To the ancient Britons, this isle in the marshes, later named 'Glastonbury' by the Saxons, was known as Ynys Witrin or (The Glass Isle). This was their beloved sacred ground, the threshold of 'Annwn' - (their 'Otherworld' paradise.) Gwyn was the protective warrior god of 'Ynys Witrin' and the British 'Lord of Paradise'.

The book takes the reader back to the beginning of the 1st century - to the tribal society of the Native Britons specific to this area; the tribe that are known to us as the Durotriges. We glimpse their spiritual world by looking at The Children of Don; the Durotriges’ pantheon of gods, goddesses and specifically Gwyn ap Nudd, the ancient god of Glastonbury. By doing this, we begin to understand Ynys Witrin as their most sacred ground.

The author deals with the Roman invasion of Britain, and of how these ancient Britons adapted to their new Romano-British lifestyle. Despite their cultural changes the Durotriges continued to use Ynys Witrin as their sacred island at least up until the 5th century.

Controversially, this view challenges the popular legend that Jesus' kinsman, Joseph of Arimathea, founded a Christian church at Glastonbury in the 1st century - Yuri explains that whist Christians were the enemies of Rome well into the 3rd century, and that the lack of any archaeological remains indicating Christian presence until the 5th century shows how Glastonbury probably functioned as a sacred burial ground until the Dark Ages.

Gwyn also accounts for the first Christian missionaries of the 5th century who made very deliberate attempts to banish the old god from Glastonbury Tor.

By taking the reader step by step through medieval Welsh literature, Yuri Leitch explains how Gwyn has an intimate link with many of Glastonbury's unusual characteristics. The Tor’s ; it's placement on the St. Michael Line alignment, with the Mid Winter sun-roll up the Tor, and most curiously, with the landscape enigma of the Glastonbury Zodiac.

This is the tale of the Saxon invasion of Britain and the mass exodus of the native Britons from their homeland and their sacred isle. It tells the evocative tale of Centwine, the Saxon king of Wessex, who 'pushed the Britons to the sea' in the 7th century and the forced retreat into Wales, Cornwall and Brittany and beyond.

Here is some of the history, giving rise to the legendary tales of 'Avalon' and the sacred ‘otherworld’ and- related faerie-realm mythology. Gwyn, the Lord of Paradise, is diminished by time and the newly imported traditions to become the 'King of the Fairies'. And then finally debased into the 'Demon King' of the Celtic Hades by ignorance; in this book you will discover the true god of Glastonbury.

Joseph of Arimathea, the graveside attendant to the crucified Jesus, is one of the most mysterious figures in the New Testament. The Gospels make no mention of him during Jesus' early ministry. Then he steps out of the shadows and takes centre stage at the pivotal moment upon which the central mystery of Christianity is based. He then seemingly disappears from Church history. The
‘Acts of the Apostles’ makes no mention of him and neither do the Epistles. To the sceptical tradition this disappearance suggests that no such person ever existed.

In this booklet Mark McGiveron assesses the often-proposed theory that Joseph of Arimathea is mythological and was created by the Gospel writers to aid the narrative of the entombment of Jesus. The present study thus represents a ‘back door’ entry to the study of the historicity of the Gospels and in particular the Passion accounts within them.
