    Default Cymroglyphics: deciphering Egyptian Hieroglyphs using Welsh

    I first came across Ross Broadstock in an episode of Gareth Icke's 'The Walk', where he explained the connection between ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and the Welsh language, and just watched a Megalithomania episode where he goes more deeply into this. I've not studied the subject enough to have an opinion about it, but it seems an interesting thing to look into, so I thought I'd share it here. :-)

    I've followed Ross Broadstock's YT channel, BritainsHiddenHistoryRoss, for a couple of years or so. He has been instrumental in keeping up interest in the work of Alan Wilson and Baram Blackett that I have followed for over 10 years and there is a significant group undergoing research into Britain's real history. There is a series of interviews with Wilson and Blackett on Richard D Hall's website; scroll down to episodes 2 and 88 to 93.
    https://www.richplanet.net/richp_genre_menu.php?gen=8

    The crux of their work is that the theory of Saxon (=German) origins of the British emerged in the 18th century, the period of the unpopular Hanoverian (=German) monarchs. Before that, the mainstream history of the Britons was that they were descended from Brutus who came from Troy; London was originally called Troia Nova, then Romanised into Trinvoantium.

    I also listened to an interview with Alan Wilson about Coelbren, a hieroglyphic language published by Edward Williams, but denounced as a forgery by mainstream academia (which was by and large English-based). Wilson said that when he applied Coelbren to the 'undecipherable' Etruscan script, he could read it. He has also said that there are many old documents kept in Wales by certain families, but they keep them to themselves as they would be rubbished by the Anglo-centric academia.

    Hopefully there is an upcoming new generation of historians and archaeologists who will be more open-minded.

    You might also be interested in a series of articles by Yvonne Whiteman on Graham Hancock's guest articles about the Kolbrin, which are said to be copies of ancient Egyptian books that were brought to Wales. Yvonne has done some detailed analysis on the Kolbrin and found correspondences with many names and places. Looking up the link to these articles, I also see that her book has just been published, so I'll be ordering that!

    Dear Anna70 and Brigantia. Forgive me, this train of thought is “Linguistics Fiction”...

    To put things straight, if you allow me (I am a linguist professionally and have studied language history all my life. More specifically, I consider myself an amateur Nostraticist), I’ll make the following essential points to frame my reasoning about the suggestions made in your post:

    Welsh is, together with Gaelic, Old Scots and Breton in France, a Celtic language; modern English is in principle Old English (of the Beowulf) – overlaid by multiple layers, among which the ones from Scandinavian languages in the Viking times, and more pervasively from French after William the Conqueror: Old English (or Anglo-Saxon) being a Germanic language, along with Icelandic, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Dutch, Afrikaans and German.

    Both Celtic and Germanic language families belong to the Indo-European macro-family of languages. Other language families belonging to Indo-European are the Romance languages (derived from Latin, like French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Rumanian), the Slavonic languages (like Russian, Polish, Czech, Slowakian, Serbocroat etc.), the Baltic languages (like Lithuanian and Latvian), the isolates Albanian, Greek and Armenian, the Iranian languages (Persian, Kurdish, Pashto etc.) and the Northern Indian languages (Hindi, Punjabi, Bengali, Urdu, Marathi, Oriya, Kashmiri, Nepalese and many more). The period in which the Indo-European macro-family split into its various families (Germanic, Romance, Slavonic etc.) is thought to be between the 6th and 5th millennium before our era, and this split may probably have been caused by the burst of the Dardanelles, which led to the Black Sea (which was a lake before) being filled with water from the Mediterranean, gaining somewhat 80 meters of height and increasing its size with a factor of three within two weeks' time, forcing the people speaking various dialects of the same (Indo-European) language living on its shores to flee in various directions.

    The Indo-European macro-family of languages in itself belongs to a still larger mega-family of languages, which is called Nostratic (which name predictably was derived from the Latin word “noster” meaning “ours”). Alongside Indo-European the Nostratic mega-family counts five other macro-language families: the Uralic macro-family with Finnish, Estonian, Sami and Hungarian as its members; the very large Altaic macro-family with all Turkic languages (including Turkish itself, Kazakh, Turkmen and for instance the language of the Uighur in Western China), but also Mongolian, Korean and Japanese; the Dravidian macro-family with the four languages of Southern India (Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada), the so-called Kartvelian language family comprising many smallish languages but also Georgian in the Kaukasus; and last but not least the macro-family which in the English speaking world goes by the name of Afro-Asiatic, but in many other civilisations is called Hamito-Semitic. To Hamito-Semitic belong the Semitic languages (like ancient Akkadian or Assyrian (not Sumerian!), Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic and Amharic (one of the main languages of Ethiopia), but also the Hamitic languages with as their essential members Egyptian (the Egyptian of the Pharaohs) and its descendant Coptic, as well as all Berber languages; other families belonging to the Afro-Asiatic/Hamito-Semitic macro-family are the Omotic group (with languages spoken in Ethiopia as well) or the Tchadic group.

    This more or less exhaustive general presentation intends to show that: the inclusion of English in the Germanic language family is beyond dispute. The language of the Beowulf (Old English) can be shown to be closely related to Old High German, Old Gothic and the language of the Eddas (of Norse mythology). This relationship is such that something called "Proto-Germanic" can be and has largely been reconstructed by linguists. This Proto-Germanic would then have been spoken, let us say, one millennium after the Dardanelles catastrophe, when this Proto-Germanic group of people set out to migrate into Eastern, Central and Northern Europe. While they moved West, they will probably have pushed the Celtic speaking people farther to the West, typically into the British Isles and Ireland, but also into present-day France (when Caesar conquered “Gallia”, the local inhabitants all spoke a Celtic language [Gall- is the same word as Cel-]).

    Exactly in parallel to Proto-Germanic, old texts in Celtic languages (Welsh, Gaelic, Old Scots, Breton etc.) have moved the reconstruction of Proto-Celtic beyond the status of a pure hypothesis.

    Returning to the catastrophe of the Dardanelles, one may hypothesise that Proto-Germanic, Proto-Celtic, Proto-Italic (from which Latin derived), Proto-Greek, Proto-Armenian etc. were at the time of the catastrophe mutually comprehensible dialects of the same Indo-European spoken on the shores of the Black then Lake. The ancestors of English and Welsh were mutually understandable then and there: in the 6th millennium before our era (i.e. 8,000 years ago) AND on the shores of the Black Lake. Probably 1,000 years later, after the catastrophe and a probable cultural setback of 2 millennia, they were not mutually understandable any longer.

    A sideline here: how do we know so sure – not that the catastrophe happened in the 6th Millennium before our era, but when the splits between families occurred? Admittedly, associating the split with the catastrophe is a probable hypothesis, but how do we date the split independently from the catastrophe? That is done by a discipline which is occasionally called chrono-statistics: it calculates the degree of difference between two languages (between French and Spanish for example) as a percentage, and on the basis of the number of words shared (belonging to a representative vocabulary: e.g. in the vocabulary of animal husbandry the word for "sheep" but not the word for "kangaroo" as there were no kangaroos around the Black Lake in the sixth millennium before our era); it then applies an “average time of vocabulary differentiation" (which is of course not easy to calibrate and is always subject to corrections) to the percentage and one thereby arrives at a number of centuries. Applying this to the split between Old French and Old Spanish for example, one arrives at probably something like the fourth century of our era, which fits well with the linguistic evidence (snippets of texts, names etc.) we have for the two cultural areas at the time.

    The same type of reasoning can then be applied to the Nostratic mega-language family. Akkadian/Assyrian (the language of the Assyrian and Babylonian Empires) belonging to Hamito-Semitic language macro-family and hence deriving from a reconstructible Proto-Hamito/Semitic, and Sanskrit (which was a contemporary of Akkadian/Assyrian) belonging to the Indo-European language macro-family and hence deriving from Proto-Indo-European – and Proto-Hamito/Semitic and Proto-Indo-European both being offshoots from Nostratic – the question then becomes: at what moment did Nostratic split into Proto-Indo-European and Proto-Hamito/Semitic? Admittedly this is far more difficult to establish than the first story of splits within Indo-European and the story of the earthquake-fractured Dardanelles, but a reasonable hypothesis can nonetheless be made on the basis of linguistic chrono-statistics. And the answer is that this split can not have occurred later than the 11th or 10th millennium before our era!

    Now, as we all know on this forum, that is a very interesting time slot. If the split was prompted by a catastrophe, which would be highly reasonable to suggest as the trigger, then the famous End of the Ice Age time slot more or less coincides.
    On one hand, this beautifully dovetails with what the Egyptian priests told Solon, according to Plato, when they compared Egypt with “Athens”. Suddenly, one realises that both geographic areas correspond to Hamito/Semitic and Indo-European respectively. Something similar arrives in the Bible, when the sons of Noah are called Sem (the Semites), Cham (the Hamites) and then Japhet. Japhet’s name corresponds to Iapetus, and hints at the Indo-European civilisation. The Flood is the Ice Age mega-tsunami indeed, and it did cause this split.

    Coming back now to the idea of Cymroglyphics - the above-mentioned timeframes mean that the linguistic relatedness between Welsh (as an Indo-European language), and the language of the Pharaohs (as a Hamito/Semitic language) dates back 12,000 years.
    It is then not impossible that Welsh and e.g. Old Egyptian are related. On the contrary, it is not only possible, in fact they ARE related. But – with a timespan of 12,000 years of differentiation in between. It is therefore highly probable that only a limited number of words may have survived this differentiation.

    Now, please forgive me my not knowing any of the Celtic languages. But allow me to make a very illuminating comparison on the base of Germanic, Greek and Latin.
    The English word "new" is related to the word "nose". Basically both come from a Nostratic word which meant "to breathe". This in itself is remarkable. The word "nose" means "breather": it is not an opaque sound stuck onto a concept we all have of something in the middle of our face, it is an analytic concept, analysing our nose as a "breather", which analytic aspect in itself points to the presence of a high civilisation. One may say that to the extent that we "forgot" that "nose" really meant "breather", we are, as Graham Hancock is rightly fond of saying, "a civilisation with amnesia". And "new"? "New” means "breathing", and – the beauty of it! – it derives from the realisation that the newborn baby starts to breathe.
    So how come that this all derives from breathing? Which part of "nose" and "new" breathes? It is obviously the initial N and then it is a sound which is still extant in the "w" of "new", and slightly hidden in the "o" of "nose": it is the sound made when we exhale through our closed lips, something in between a "w", a "v" and a "f". Also this is highly analytical: we do breathe both through our nose and our mouth. So it is the "n" of the nasal humming and the "wvf" of the exhaling through the mouth which are combined to create not only the concept of "nose-hood" but also of "new-ness". (In German and Dutch we find "neu" and "nieuw" for "new", and "Nase" and "neus" for "nose" respectively (notice how Dutch kept the wvf element in its word for "nose" as well).

    So far for Germanic. When we look at Latin, we immediately see the same. "Nose" in Latin was "naso", and we have the derivative from Latin "nasal" in the English vocabulary. "New" in Latin was "novus", and we clearly recognise the English "w" in the Latin "v" of "novus".

    Looking at Greek, we have to shift our perspective a little. Greek – and we will soon see that in Hamito/Semitic something similar arises – also expresses the inhalation part of breathing. It puts a vowel "a" in front of the combination. Doing so, in a way it changes the root from N—VWF into A—N—VWF. In actual fact, Greek does not change it: it kept the original combination from Nostratic; in Latin and Germanic the initial A was lost in the words considered (nose and new, naso and novus). With this as a basis, we can see that Greek has its word for "breather" as well. It is "anèr" (pronounced: anair). The A is there, the N is there, but the WVF was absorbed into the "-er" ending, which has the same function as in "breather", expressing the agent. But "anèr" meaning "breather", does not mean "nose", it means "man, male". The human, as an adult, is a breather after all (and maybe still a baby as well). The genitive of "anèr" being "andros", we recognise an English word derived from Greek like "androgynous" (male-female).

    Leaving Indo-European, let us enter Hamito/Semitic. Unfortunately, I would have to look up the word for "nose” in Old Egyptian, but just for the Semitic field, there is the striking example of Arabic: the Arabic word for "nose" is "anf”, which has clearly kept the original Nostratic A—N—VWF in its entirety — 12,000 years later!
    There are probably not many words like those rendering one of the derived meanings of the concept off "breathing", one may say. Yet Dolgopolsky’s Nostratic Dictionary has 2,805 entries. That means: 2,805 words of Nostratic are more or less known, and survive in at least two of the macro-language families.

    Hence it is possible that Welsh and Old Egyptian share something like – let’s make a guess – 100 words. But that does not mean that Old Egyptian influenced Welsh or Welsh Old Egyptian. It just means that they have both preserved, as an heirloom, the same 100 Nostratic words.

    Arguably the same may hold for Gaelic and Old Egyptian, and probably for the same words (because Gaelic and Welsh are closely related). But – and this is the point – the same holds true for all members of the Nostratic mega-family. If as an hypothesis, we start from positing that Welsh and Old Egyptian share 100 surviving words, that may also be the case for any other member of the Indo-European macro-family and Old Egyptian (as a member of the Hamito/Semitic macro-family)! Old Egyptian may then share 100 words with English also – but they will probably be slightly different from those shared by Old Egyptian with Welsh/Gaelic. Or: another 100 with languages from the Latin or Slav families (with French, with Russian), or from the Northern Indian language family (Sanskrit!). Etc.

    These "same kin" heirlooms from Nostratic are rare, but precious. They show how old our languages are.
    And in a certain sense, Welsh and Old Egyptian ARE each other. They are because they could both be thought of as forms Nostratic has taken after 12,000 years.

    Maybe to make you curious: it does NOT stop there. The mega-language family to which Chinese belongs, or the one to which Thai belongs, or the one to which Quechua and Aymara belong, are all also related to the Nostratic one, and also to each other.

    When in a way – and following the biblical tale about the sons of Noah and the conversation of the Egyptian priest with Solon – Nostratic can be thought of as the language of Atlantis, this still larger, "hyper-mega" relationship could be thought of as founded in the language of Mu.

    what an enlightening 'geek out' Michel, I live in Wales but dont speak welsh.
    my kids went to a primary school where tuition was 50/50 welsh/english. very useful brain wiring.
    last time I looked, there were 750k welsh speakers in a 3m population. there are vast variations in slang, the south and north dont understand each other :-)

    Been studying this topic for a few years now and have a pretty good idea of the different migration patterns. Makes a lot more sense when you realise the Egyptians didn't migrate to Europe but the European indo-aryan tribes--the vedic cattle cult and serpent worshippers--settled and built Egypt. As Susan Brind Morrow admits with her translation of the Pyramid texts of Unis, in her book 'The Dawning of the Moon Mind'. Dr Charles Kos also did a recent short video on this topic...

    =========

    Robert Sepehr talks about the pyramid building pre-deluvian Red Ochre civilisation that was once spread across all of Northern Eurasia and the Americas. Christopher Knight also talks about this red ochre civilisation that dates back to at least 26,000BC, in the book 'Uriels Machine: The Ancient Origins of Science'

    ======

    Brian Foerster did his DNA analysis on the elongated skulls of Peru and found they had DNA that can be traced to the baltic region of the black sea near Ukraine. Which is where Tim and Lee Hooker talk about the origins of the Vedic homelands in their presentation on Aratta, a culture that dates from 20,000BC to 1000AD.

    ========

    Freddy Silva talks about the post-diluvian civilisation that helped to rebuild the world following the great biblical flood, traces it to the European Anu-naga (anunaki) tribes of the Vedas in his book 'The Missing Lands'.

    ========

    Overall they paint the picture of a Vedic culture that had a druidic tradition called 'the language of the birds', practiced by the Scythian, Thracian and Gaul tribes from around the black sea area, migrated through Europe to form the bard traditions of gaelic ancestry.

    The Thracians in particular have a rich ancestry, the gold artefacts and high art found at the Varna necropolis for instance i.e. the oldest gold burial in the world, predates that of the Egyptians dating back to 4600BC. Dr Charles Kos mentioned Gobekli Tepe in Turkey could've had a Thracian connection due to the focus on bird art in both cultures and their proximity to the black sea. Robert Sepehr has a few videos on them also:

    =========

    Ralph Ellis talks about the Scottish-Egyptian-Scythian connection in his book Scota, Egyptian Queen of the Scots, where he discusses how the pharoah Akhenatons daughter, Scota, married a scythian king and migrated to the U.K.

    Thank you for your expert and detailed response Michel. I always envy the linguistic ability across the Channel, my Dutch ex-sister in law spoke French, English and German fluently; my French is very rusty, but my Italian's not bad. Apologies for my late response, I've been busy cooking dinner; that's 'lunch' if you are from the south of England but I'm not. We have breakfast, dinner and tea, there's some regional linguistic difference for you!

    I would say though that if the academic disciplines of history and archaeology have been distorted, could linguistics also have been distorted to fit those narratives? Maybe it could be the case of anything that doesn't fit the narrative gets shelved; I once had a very interesting and honest conversation with a scientist in Oxford who told me that anyone who produces climate change research that contradicts the mainstream narrative quickly finds themselves out of a job.

    This is what Wikipedia says about the English language:

    "English is a West Germanic language that originated from Anglo-Frisian dialects brought to Britain in the mid 5th to 7th centuries AD by Anglo-Saxon migrants from what is now northwest Germany, southern Denmark and the Netherlands." (My emphasis.)

    However, 'The Origins of the British' by Stephen Oppenheimer examines the ancient DNA of the people of the British Isles. The sequence of migrations is very complex and too long to set out in detail here, but there is a clear gene split between most of the English and the rest of the people of the British Isles. He also examines the historical, archaeological and linguistic evidence of migration.

    One very interesting study that he cites was an examination that challenges the age of the English language. The closest language to English is Frisian, and they looked at the degree of divergence of the words of the Heliland poem of 825 AD and the oldest documents written in English, that date from the time of Alfred the Great (9th century AD), as Alfred translated some Latin texts into English. The conclusion was that the divergence was so great that a Germanic language was probably introduced into England between 3600 BC and 350 AD, and changed over time into Old English (see chapter 7 for the full discussion).

    He also discusses the 'Saxon Shore', the name given to the south coast of England (mentioned in Tacitus, I think). Historians have long argued whether it refers to the shore facing the Saxons, or the shore where the Saxons lived. The former doesn't make sense as it doesn't face Saxony but France, or Gaul as the Romans named it; wouldn't it have been better named the 'Gallic Shore'? It makes more sense if the 'Saxons' were already living there.

    One other point from the book is that the ancient DNA from the east coast of England, particularly East Anglia, does not support the 'Celts pushed into further corners of the isle' argument. DNA of Scandinavian origin is a bit higher there than elsewhere, but it suggests integration rather than displacement.

    We were brought up to believe that ancient Britons were nothing more than isolated woad-painted savages until the Romans came to civilise the country, though the only historical record comes from the Romans (mainly Tacitus), who believed that other cultures were inferior to their own. However, if you look at the intricate metalwork that is found in the archaeological record, that doesn't really ring true. It was also recorded that the Druids could speak Greek. Everything of stone in Britain from prehistoric times, with the exception of standing stones, is said to be Roman but as it is problematic to date stone, how can they say with certainty? What if all the straight paved roads in Britain were pre-Roman, seeing as there was flourishing pre-Roman trade? Britain is an island rich in raw materials such as tin, lead and coal, and gold in Wales. Also amphitheatres found in Britain are supposedly 'Roman', but when I visited those at Cirencester and Caerleon they looked more like assembly places for meetings to me, and nothing like the amphitheatres that I've seen abroad.

    Finally, is it really a stretch of the imagination to believe that the Egyptians reached Britain? It's now been grudgingly accepted after years of denial that Vikings reached America, and there is plenty of evidence of pre-Viking presence in North America - Lake Michigan's mined copper that is missing from their archaeological record, for example. Researchers such as Christopher Knight, Robert Lomas and Michael Tsarion argue that there was communication between Britain, Ireland and Egypt. Ralph Ellis does too, but I find that he has a tendency to take a supposition and then use it as fact for the rest of his argument.

    They tested Tutankhamun's DNA 10 years ago and found that less than 1% of present day Egyptian men shared it, but it was shared in 85% of Scottish men. The further you go down Britain the percentage decreased, but it was still a significant percentage. So, how did an Egyptian pharaoh's DNA reach our isles? (Yes, I do know about Scota.)

    I'll also leave you with a picture of this curiosity from the Isle of Portland, which is just to the south of Weymouth in Dorset. Gary Biltcliffe discussed it in his very interesting book 'The Spirit of Portland; Revelations of a Sacred Isle', it was found buried on Portland and he wrote that when it used to be in the garden of a house, some of the locals would bow to it as they passed. It doesn't look very native British to me...

    Brigantia, thank you for your post with a lot of news (“breathings”) for me. There are no fundamental contradictions between what you have written and the Nostratic perspective. Grant me a few days to come back to the forum with a small comment here and there of your post. Meanwhile do post more! And... the sculpture is fascinating.

    I have only recently come across Cymroglyphics - and it is mind blowing stuff...

    It looks like Welsh, specifically Old Welsh, but Welsh in general is the language underpinning Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs - and can be used to translate it -

    amazing


    I haven't looked at all the links here yet, so sorry if this has already been posted - it's Ross Broadstock talking about the basics and going through 3 famous names in cartouches -

    I think it's very exciting stuff and I bought the book straight away...




    video description...

    Quote An overview of how the Welsh /Ancient Assyrian language unlocks the secrets of ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics and how easy it is to learn. A series of videos will follow going through the different areas. Such as-
    Reading and writing names - with their secret meanings
    Deciphering Pictograms
    How the language came to Wales ....
    Accompanies the books "Moses in the Hieroglyphs" by Wilson and Blackett and "Cymroglyphics" by K Ross Broadstock
    Available through - www.cymroglyphics.com Ebay and Amazon


    The 'Britain's Hidden History' channel that Ross runs is a treasure trove of fascinating information presented in a down to earth way -

    https://www.youtube.com/c/BritainsHiddenHistoryRoss


    there's a live presentation every Sunday at 8 pm...


    At the moment there is great concern that wind turbines are going to destroy many historic (ancient) sites and no Welsh politicians appear to care...

    typical isn't it... 'free' energy .... zero point energy is suppressed in favour of destroying the environment - (to allegedly save the environment) - with vast tracks of natural, beautiful and historic terrain being destroyed with arrays of many many thousands of inefficient wind turbines...

    For anyone who has been following Ross Broadstock's channel Britain's Hidden History; his son has posted a sad and touching YT video to let us all know that Ross passed away suddenly. No words, this is shocking news as he leaves a wife and three young boys. Hedwch Ross.

    Oh no... how terrible -I'm in shock and feel very upset -

    I happened to be watching the live presentation last night when Ross was doing his stuff talking about the hieroglyphics - then he was suddenly unwell and had to move away from the computer saying something about his back and his wife came and turned the live stream off.... but then he came back for a bit but finished early -
    When I went onto the live stream (a bit late) I thought his face looked a bit puffy and he didn't look 100% -

    Ross will be sadly and REALLY missed by many many people... especially his family - he was a real family man and his sons played music for the live stream -

    RIP Ross....

    (not sure if he took the you-know-what )

    Me too, Jaybee - I'm stunned and shocked.

    I never met him but had a few email exchanges, and even with all the work he put into the channel he always sent detailed and full replies. The books that I bought always came with a handwritten thanks from him. A friend of mine helped him with video editing, she met him once and said that he had a kind and welcoming personality, just as it came through in his presentations.

    He worked tirelessly, may he rest in peace. From the video comments a lot of people are determined to carry on his work. A GoFundMe is also being set up for his widow and sons.

    I've followed Ross Broadstock's YT channel, BritainsHiddenHistoryRoss, for a couple of years or so. He has been instrumental in keeping up interest in the work of Alan Wilson and Baram Blackett that I have followed for over 10 years and there is a significant group undergoing research into Britain's real history. There is a series of interviews with Wilson and Blackett on Richard D Hall's website; scroll down to episodes 2 and 88 to 93.
    https://www.richplanet.net/richp_genre_menu.php?gen=8

    The crux of their work is that the theory of Saxon (=German) origins of the British emerged in the 18th century, the period of the unpopular Hanoverian (=German) monarchs. Before that, the mainstream history of the Britons was that they were descended from Brutus who came from Troy; London was originally called Troia Nova, then Romanised into Trinvoantium.

    I also listened to an interview with Alan Wilson about Coelbren, a hieroglyphic language published by Edward Williams, but denounced as a forgery by mainstream academia (which was by and large English-based). Wilson said that when he applied Coelbren to the 'undecipherable' Etruscan script, he could read it. He has also said that there are many old documents kept in Wales by certain families, but they keep them to themselves as they would be rubbished by the Anglo-centric academia.

    Hopefully there is an upcoming new generation of historians and archaeologists who will be more open-minded.

    You might also be interested in a series of articles by Yvonne Whiteman on Graham Hancock's guest articles about the Kolbrin, which are said to be copies of ancient Egyptian books that were brought to Wales. Yvonne has done some detailed analysis on the Kolbrin and found correspondences with many names and places. Looking up the link to these articles, I also see that her book has just been published, so I'll be ordering that!
    https://grahamhancock.com/author/yvonne-whiteman/

    Also Rich D Hall's very latest episode 298 contains an interview with Ross Broadstock himself.

    https://www.richplanet.net/richp_gen...8&part=1&gen=8

    Also available on YouTube



    Don't forget attempts on lives of Wilson & Blackett were made (bomb placed under Blackett's bed, nearly killed, in a coma for a week etc). All a bit fishy to me. Black project "heart-attack" weapons as a means of removing undesirables are well documented. Cases in point: leaders of African nation unwilling to go along with the covid narrative.

    Quote Wilson and Blackett suffered years of intimidation when they were publishing books about King Arthur and British history from around 1980. These historians have never been tied to any academic establishment which means they've always been free to go where others have feared to tread. Much of their work and findings you will not find being taught in school or university history lessons.

    I've just been to read the comments under his son's incredibly sad announcement - Ross has made a real mark on the world in a good way - a very good way - besides everything else he was involved with he was writing a musical about King Arthur and would sometimes sing heartily on his live stream and his son Arnie would play the violin - sometimes Leon would play the keyboard and he often spoke about being busy, going to and singing in church and taking his boys to play and watch rugby earlier in the day... he was so proud of his sons and showed great love for his family --

    something that also sticks in my mind was footage of him out on the land dowsing - he was new to it and the rods really worked well for him and he was a natural... at the end of his final broadcast he was apologising to people - about worrying them with his sudden exit when his wife Angie had to turn it off for a while... he took his jumper off and was saying to his wife not to worry - he thought he had a pulled muscle or had muscle strain - I saw one of the comments saying he died of a heart attack...

    Everyone is shocked and gutted at the terrible news...


    This is his final presentation from last night... what a precious man he was....





    Egyptology pseudo-science exposed. Did they really crack the hieroglyphs?

    Yes, that crossed my mind too; Ross was particularly vocal recently about ancient sites being bulldozed so that no trace of them remains. Alan Wilson has said in the past that CADW (the Welsh government body overseeing ancient sites) seemed to be actively trying to cover up Welsh ancient sites.

    The drawings in the YT thumbnail were all his own work too - he was a man of many talents.

    A short video from karl-james lang (4:16)...



    Ross Broadstock passing today Monday 17th October 2022

    and one of the comments...

    Quote Im choked watching this Karl, ive been out on site visits with Ross for the last 2 and a half years and waking up from nights to a phonecall this morning, and after the initial shock, im totally gutted. I feel for his wife and children as he was such a wonderful person. You made an incredible statement regarding his passion for the truth. We must build on this, and as you say, keep pushing as there has been so much idiocy regarding our history. Ross was just beginning to ride a wave with the info he was bringing out, with more subs and book sales, more people willing to question the mainstream narrative on ancient british history. I truly believe that BHH was/is onto something. Attitudes are beginning to change on certain historical issues. I really hope his relentless approach will not be in vain. Whats fantastic and immensely heartwarming is the fact that, you both come at this subject from differing angles, yet the ability to both debate and listen to other information is the key to progress. To see you and ross in the same video with your saving of the WW2 era tower, was brilliant. Im gonna really miss him.

    well it's been a week since the sudden and tragic death of Ross Broadstock and the reverberations of shock and grief are still strong amongst those who knew him well and also those who never met him but felt connected to him and his work - it's like he has been taken too soon and it shouldn't have happened - still not sure if he took the you-know- what or not - people do die of heart attacks but nowadays a sudden and unexpected heart attack is suspicious as excess death rates climb related to the jab - whether or not - he's gone now and it's all very upsetting - as I said.... as if he was taken too soon...

    There has been an announcement by a family member saying that Ross's work will go on and that's what the family want - oh my god those poor boys loosing their father and his wife Angie having to hold the family together on her own - Ross was such a dynamic and busy person - involved with exciting research and adventures - while also committed deeply to his family -

    here's the short update announcement... (1:09)

    I agree with everything you've said Jaybee - I'm still shocked by Ross being taken too soon, my heart aches for his widow and three lovely boys. My friend who had met him and worked with him is gutted. It was a lovely short vid by his cousin Neil about their determination to continue the work.

    Have you seen the fundraiser? It had a target of £500 and is now at over £8000, that's just a testament to how he touched everyone who tuned in to his shows. I've been catching up on a few of his Sunday shows that I missed, though I can't bring myself to watch the last one; it would seem ghoulish.
