Many folklore stories over time are slowly transformed into myth and legend, permeating the national psyche, eventually becoming part of the way that we think and view ourselves as a nation. This incisive quest attempts to unravel and find answers to many of the still unanswered questions that present themselves when enquiring into some of these myths and legends. This quest offers definitive answers to such questions as: * What is the relationship between the Neolithic works dotted around the British landscape, and those who built the many churches on pre-exiting pagan sites? * Who was St. Michael and why is it that his name is inextricably linked with the phenomenon of the longest ley line in Britain? What does this system of ley lines constructed upon the British landscape portend for future generations? * Who was Joseph of Arimathea and where is he buried? * Where exactly is the fabled Island of Ictis; can we establish a relationship between this island, renowned in the ancient world as an exporter of tin, with Joseph of Arimathea? * What exactly is the prophetic tradition? Do the biblical prophets have any relevance today?
Was the prophecy of Melkin that tells of the whereabouts of Jesus' tomb, of that same prophetic tradition? * Was King Arthur's body actually found in Glastonbury, or was it an elaborate hoax? If not, where is he buried? What is the connection between the Templar treasure and the Isle of Avalon and what has this to do with Leonardo da Vinci? * What is the meaning of the Grail stories? What is the Grail and who does it serve? Where is the Island of Sarras and why is it so named. * What has the Grail tradition to do with the Turin Shroud? How was it that Science was unable to say how the image on the Turin Shroud was formed? Why can no one explain the shrouds provenance or history prior to 1353 AD? These topics initially seem to be so disparate and unconnected that any relation between them appears scant and impossible to establish with any degree of certainty. However, it is the aim of this enquiry to show how inextricably linked these diverse questions are. It shows how the many pieces of a puzzle that have hitherto been unconnected, hidden, deliberately obscured, ignored, misunderstood, or even inadvertently lost over time, can be resolved into one conclusive body of evidence.
