    v    pro copy

Just

How true is it that all mythology has some basis in fact? This course hopes to reveal the real characters, locations, history and archaeology behind some of the most important mythological material of Britain to survive into the 21st century.  In chronological order these colourful PowerPoint presentations will reveal the amazing truth behind the mysteries.
 
 

The Real Da Vinci Code: Dead Sea Scrolls, Nag Hammadi Library, Creation & Evolution, Genesis, Fossil Discoveries, Giants, Noah's Ark, Human Species & DNA, Exodus, Moses, Bible Codes, Jerusalem, Jesus, The Real Crucifixion, Burial, Tomb, Mary Magdalene, etc. Better than the book.
Part 2. The Disappearing Ninth Legion: Based on the popular book of the same name, we look at the somewhat turbulent history of the Romans in Britain from the first failed invasion by Julius Caesar, uprising of Boudicca, creation of the Roman legacy, potential annihilation of the Ninth Legion, building of Hadrian's wall & decline to the end of the Roman occupation with theories for the actual end of the Ninth Legion.
Part 3. Revealing The Green Man: New archaeological & historical evidence for the Prehistoric Solar Copper & Fertility cult of the Green Man in the European Bronze and Iron Age. Includes Egyptian Origins, Alderley Edge, The Great Orme Llandudno, Lindow & Lindow Man, Knutsford Royal May Day, Medieval Churches, Foresters, International Variations, etc.
Part 4. King Arthur - The Extra Mile: Based on the best selling books 'The Keys To Avalon' and 'Pendragon – The Search For The Real Arthur', evidence is put forward to establish Arthur & his men in North Wales, Wirral, Cheshire, Derbyshire, Shropshire, Lancashire & Staffordshire. Part 2 'The Extra Mile' reveals actual map locations for battles, burial sites, main characters, Camelot, Avalon, & much more. Part 3 looks at the details of surviving literary sources & their implications.
Part 5. Vikings In The 'Norse' West: They came from the land of the ice & snow in large numbers but where's the evidence ? How can such a cultural in-flux arrive over 300 years & not leave tangible archaeology & DNA ? This talk confirms the evidence we all assume to be there but not always with the popular viewpoint upheld.
Part 6. Wisdom Of The Knights Templar & Other Orders: The philosophies of the Middle East arrive in Medieval Europe. What did the Warrior Monks believe ? Jerusalem & The Crusades, history of the orders, Hospitallers, Templars, Knights of Rhodes & Malta, Teutonic Knights, Gothic Architecture, Templar Mysteries & Symbolism, De-Coding Knightly Burials, the orders today, traditions kept alive for almost 600 years. Was it just the Church at war or much more than just mere Crusades ?
Part 7. The Life & Times Of The Real Robyn Hoode: The life & times of the real Robyn Hoode revealed for the first time with lots of new discoveries, archaeological & historical evidence, dates & sites, the real 'Maid Marian & the Merry Men', how & why his area of operation appears so large, & why he has become the archetypal British Medieval hero the world over.
Part 8. An Informal History Of Freemasonry: So what secrets can be told ? How did this enormous and influential world wide organization come into being ? Do they really rule the world through various secret organizations ? This informal unofficial history seeks to answer those questions which can be answered, and reveals the organization as it really is today.
Part 9. Vampires & The Devil: In ancient times everyone believed in some kind of walking dead that could take life from the living. In this comprehensive examination we take a journey through the primitive fears of the past, through horrors & realities of the Medieval world, the science of the enlightened age, & into the terrifying modern day mixture of film, television, & reality ! Who or what are Vampires ? Who or what is the Devil ? Origins, History, Documentation, Visual Representations, Source, etc.
