Way back in the 11C Geoffrey of Monmouth compiled together the existing Welsh legends and manuscripts about the History of the land of Britian before
the Romans, here is a translation of his facinating book... History of Britain by Geoffrey of Monmouth
I am reading a book by this author below and its FACINATING.
Geoffrey of Monmouth collected together archaic manuscripts from
the Welsh - who were the original "Britians". These documents have been translated and gave rise to the Arthurian legends. They are also the
documents that give the post above, the History of the Kings of Britian.
BTW there was a Britian called King Leir, who's kindoom was divided among his 3 daughters upon his death.
Yep - Shakespeare wrote King Lear, based on that person.

Lifestyle: 4 October 2004, Monday.
The oldest and largest Thracian tomb disclosed so far on Bulgarian land has been unearthed from beneath the Golyama Kosmatka mound, in the outskirts
of the Shipka Peak.
The archeological team's head Georgi Kitov, called also Bulgaria's "Indiana Jones" explained that the excavations have revealed a 13-metre long
passage and two halls walled up with stones behind the fašade.
The tomb has amazed archeologists with its first-of-the-kind doors made of marble and decorated with human figures, iron nail imitations and
blue-end-red sculptural ornaments.
Further on, the first chamber showed up in a rectangular and vaulted form where a horse skeleton was found.
The archeologists from the TEMP 2004 expedition have now reached in front of a sealed second chamber, which they will try to open.
During the eexcavations of the Golyamata Kosmatka mound Georgi Kitov unearthed the impressive bronze head of supposedly a Thrachian ruler believed to
be a craftswork of renowned ancient sculpturer Phidias.
