I have a lot of respect for Wilson and Blackett, but unfortunately in their books the first few chapters are spent slogging it out with the academics. I can see their point, (seeing what happened to Velikovsky by the academic establishment), but I wish they would get on with it. This book is excellent in the fact like all their books, as the get history put in the right timeline. I agree totally that the accepted academic timline with all the invented dark ages from not only Greece, but Egypt and Brtain is total rubbish. There were no dark ages. History didn't stop, and come back 600 years later from where they left off, with all the population who forgot how to write, and then reappear writing from where they left off. The only unfortunate problem with these publishers though, is spelling mistakes, which occur frequently, obviously were not checked thoroughly before publication. Lose one star for this, and lose one for the extended confrontation with the academics at the beginning( which as I said is ok, but just get on with writing the book, and put the confrontation at the back. All in all though, a must for serious alternative history researchers, and I agree with the the new timeline, and corrected history.

Deeply refreshing to see your pragmatic approach in the face of adversity. Knowing that an approach from the culture of context, linguistics and movement of peoples/ ancient names of the land and rivers, always yields a superior appraisal; couple that with the ancient oral traditions of our respective cultures in these isles and all it records with the subsequent committing to written format, the past becomes clearer than the lies we were all brainwashed into at school, university and others via the severely narrow pro anglo-saxon non sequiturs and fairy tale drivel. A cautionary note to those who place medium above message, this book is a print on demand publication and clearly has not had the grace of time and resources to allow full proof reading or editing -to get it out there-, but like some of the best books ever read, the research speaks volumes. Those seeking greater knowledge via Cymraeg, Gaelic or early histories of the British Isles have found a diamond in the rough. Condensing so many threads requires a discipline that so many cloistered academics fall pathetically short of in supporting their dusty careers in questionable roles of illusory state propaganda predicated on a shift within the ancient institution of monarchy usurpation of the last four hundred years. Internationally, the multi disciplinary approach contains a notable truth that nearly all significant advances in gleaning a broader comprehension of the past comes from professional disciplines and practices outside of the "fields" of archaeology, egyptology and the attendant academic monopolies.

Format: Paperback
Alan Wilson and Baram Blackett obviously feel very strongly about the issues surrounding ancient Egyptian and middle eastern chronology and have spent many years researching and expounding an alternative explanation, meeting with much opposition as a result.

This book explores their opinion of what should be the correct chronology, how it all ties in to the Trojan war and proposes a new date for the event of around 650 BC, it also touches on many other related subjects such as the origins of the British people, the Coelbren alphabet, radiocarbon dating and the translation of Hieroglyphics, as such it did throw light for me on plenty of areas for further study.

However....

There are a number of aspects regarding this book that unfortunately make it very difficult to get into and accept it's ideas as a convincing alternative, only a determined and open minded reader who can look past these faults and do their own research will persevere and get anything useful out of it.

1. The spelling and grammar used throughout is horrific, the huge quantity of mistakes and grammatical errors make for a painful read and diminish the plausibility of the arguments made. No proof reading was done before publication, why?

2. The book repeats itself on many occasions, whole sections are almost duplicated, although not word for word. Subjects that have already been covered are needlessly revisited and lead to frustration and a temptation to skip pages. It appears that the method used to construct the book was merely to record the authors speaking at length about the subject and then to type up a transcript without any particular editing.
