This is the same Alan Wilson that claims that a Welsh prince migrated to Bat
Creek, Tennessee,in the 6th century A.D. He also researched the (President)
Bush family tree. Hmmm.

"NEW RESEARCH AMATEURISH AND FLAWED,"
SAYS LEADING BRITISH HISTORIAN.
"Ancient British history, the history of the Khumric people, is under
attack," says Alan Wilson, Britain's foremost expert on these matters.
"A new genetic study by a team based at University College, London, under
Dr. Mark Thomas, is amateurish and fatally flawed because it ignores the
best historical evidence", Wilson adds. Thomas claims that invading
Anglo-Saxons gained a position of power within the British Isles through a
"system of apartheid", supposedly explaining how, over a period of 300
years, the ancient British, numbering at least six million (the number given
in Salway's Roman Britain, 1981), were supplanted by Anglo-Saxons, numbering
in the tens of thousands.
"But this is nonsense," says Wilson, co-author of seven books on ancient
British history and whose best-selling paperback The Holy Kingdom caused
uproar when published in 1997. "Massive historical evidence points to much
of Britain being devastated by a cometary strike in the mid 6th Century.
Astronomers at Cardiff University agree with us, as do astrophysicists
including Dr. Victor Klube of Oxford University and dendrochronologists led
by Dr. Michael Baillie of Belfast. All agree that a comet hit Britain and
yet this research, and that of other scientists, has been completely ignored
by Dr. Thomas."
The destruction caused by the comet, is, Wilson says, the simplest, best,
most appropriate and only factual explanation for the growth of Anglo-Saxon
power from the 7th Century onwards. Subsequent Anglo Saxon invasions could
not have succeeded without this disaster. "We are in trouble if academics
can ignore the best historical evidence we have," Wilson continued.
"Clearly, as explained in Welsh historical records of huge integrity, the
comet struck causing massive devestation and the main victims were the
One ancient Khumric record, the Brut Tyssilio, speaks of, "a star of great
magnitude and brilliance with a single beam shining from it. At the end of
this beam was a ball of fire, spread out in the shape of a dragon..."
Another, the Life of St. Teilo (who lived mid sixth Century), states, "St.
Teilo received the pastoral care of the church of Llandaff to which he had
been consecrated....but could not long remain, however, on account of the
pestilence which nearly destroyed the whole nation....it was called the
Yellow Pestilence because it occasioned all persons who were seized by it to
be yellow without blood and it appeared to men as a watery column of cloud
having one end trailing along the ground and the other above, proceeding in
the air and passing through the entire country like a shower going through
the bottom of the vallies."
These are but two examples of a multiplicity of historical sources pointing
in the same direction but which have been ignored by Dr. Mark Thomas. "The
Anglo-Saxon invasion would have been impossible without the cometary
strike," argues Wilson, "and you cannot ignore 99% of the historical
evidence and make effective progress, which is why genetic studies such as
this much-publicised recent effort are so flawed."
"If we want the answers to important historical questions that are the basis
for the origins of the Welsh Dragon, and the real heritage and culture of
the Khumric and British people, then we need look no further than the
ancient records," says Wilson.
"Dr. Thomas and his team at University College London have replaced
historical fact with modern-day fiction and they clearly have not done their
