It has taken years of painstaking research to rediscover with verifiable evidence the true Ancestors of our Isle, after centuries of suppression. The Wihtwara were a spiritual, peaceable race of people who were massacred for their beliefs. It is my passion, my aim, to honour and respect them again, for without them we would not be here.
It has been given to me loud and clear:-
"We only truly die when we are forgotten!"

WALKING WITH OUR ANCESTORS
Our new podcast for 2022:
The new evidence backed by science.
Our histories are in need of a re-write!
The real evidence uncovering the truth about our ancestors, the Wihtwara.
(1 st century C.E. -686 C.E.)
After a many months that turned into years of research uncovering the smothered truth about our hidden race of peaceful pagan people, the Wihtwara on Wihtland (Isle of wight), I came to the extraordinary conclusion that the histories, (our only reference to that time) had been written by monks with a religious or pollical bias, some coming across as sheer polemic. It is myth and dramatised legend accepted as fact, taught to generations of our children, and is most certainly false. What possible facts are there are subsumed by romantic dramas fit for fiction but certainly not historical fact.
I therefore turned to science. The first evidence I collected was an incredible accumulation of archaeological, linguistic, DNA profiling by the research scientist Stephen Oppenheimer.
His book: The Origins of the British.
British pre-history will have to be radically re-thought” Sir Barry Cunliffe
Thank you very much for your point of view of our ancient his-story. It is appreciated as it encouraged me to research deeper into the vast reference material I have amassed over the course of three years study.
With respect I would like to draw your attention to the finding made by the DNA study of our Ancestor’s lineage in Britain, published in 2015 in the New Scientist. 2039 Caucasians took part with the proviso that four of their grandparents were born within 80 miles of each other, thereby fixing a date approx. to 1885 before immigration occurred.
The team found that the
genetic profiles of the participants formed 17 distinct
clusters. When they mapped this information based on where
the participants lived they were surprised to see the
clusters mapped almost exactly to geographical location.
The largest cluster accounted for half the participants and occupies almost the whole of eastern and southern England and most of the Midlands. This turned out to be the genetic legacy of the Anglo-Saxon invasions. Even so, at least 60 per cent of the DNA in the cluster had survived from earlier migrants (, ).
In fact, all 17 clusters are dominated by DNA from settlers that arrived prior to the Anglo-Saxons. By comparing the clusters with genomes from modern-day continental Europe, the team was able to piece together the general migration pattern that took place.
The first wave of arrivals crossed by
land bridges, when sea levels were so low that Britain was
attached to what is now northern Germany. This wave was
dominated by people with genomes most like modern-day
inhabitants of northern Germany and Belgium. In parallel,
migrants from the west coast of France were arriving by
boat. Traces of the combined DNA from all these three
pioneer settlers forms the basis for the genetic-make up
of all white Britons.”
This undoubtedly supports the growing
evidence that gradual migration to Britain’s shores
occurred over a prolonged period. Before the now disputed
‘mass invasion’ of warring Saxons.
And it is a to the Roman chronicler Tacitus that I would like to refer you to. He was of the time, beyond the biased writings of Bede who was deeply Christian, and his account created centuries afterwards. Tacitus traveled to Germania, his father-in-law Agricola was a governor of Britannia. Tacitus wrote as a reporter and his narrative is descriptive and enlightening.
It is his accuracy in naming the tribes he encountered, to paint a diverse picture of the people that are our ancestors.
They celebrate the Tuisto, sprung from the earth, and his son Mannus, as the fathers and founder of the race. To Mannus they ascribe three sons, from whose names the people bordering on the ocean are called Ingaevones: the rest, Istaevones. Some, however, assuming the license of antiquity, affirm that there were more descendants of the god, from whom more appellations were derived: as those of the Marsi, Gambrivii, Suevi, and Vandali: and that these are the genuine and original names.
That of Germany, on the other hand, they assert to be a modern addition: for that the people who first crossed the Rhine, and expelled the Gauls, and are now called Tungri, were then named Germans: which appellation of a particular tribe, not of a whole people, gradually prevailed: so that the title of Germans, first assumed by the victors, to excite terror, was afterwards adopted by the nation in general.”
I would like to draw your attention to the confederacy of seven tribes: the Suevi. Just as the rich tapestry of many tribal societies became euphemised as ‘German,’ so the inhabitants of and very migratory people in the Cimbric Peninsular, became euphemised as “Jutlanders” or Jutes, an over simplified version of their lives has been painted.
Within the Suevi, there were: Eudose (Southern jutes) Anglii (Anglo), Aviones Reudignion, Warinni, Suardones and Niuthones, a confederacy of seven tribes who unite to worship Nerthus, (Hertha) the Earth Mother, in equal standing to the male gods Woden, Tiw, Thor.
They unite in the worship of Hertha, Mother Earth: and suppose her to interfere in the affairs of men, and to visit the different nations. In an island of the ocean stands a sacred and unviolated grove, in which is a consecrated chariot, covered with a veil, which the priest alone is permitted to touch. He becomes conscious of the entrance of the goddess into this secret recess, and with profound veneration attends the vehicle, which is drawn by yoked cows. At this season all is joy: and every place the goddess deigns to visit is a scene of festivity. No wars are undertaken arms are untouched: and every hostile weapon is shut up. Peace abroad and at home are then only known then only loved: until at length the same priest reconducts the goddess back to her temple.”
May I recommend you read The Wihtwara, a fictional story based on years of this research. And you will find that nearly 50% of the story is devoted to Woden and the patriarchal gods.
King Arthur: The
Now, after several years research on my part for the Wihtwara Trilogy series, the ground-breaking documentary, broadcast on the BBC in 2018, led by Professor Alice Roberts and who heads a team of eminent archaeologists, historians, DNA profile experts and scientists, prove the Anglo-Saxon Dark Age invasion never happened. This is science over myth at its very best. Myth busting. It gives fresh humanist evidence to a quieter, steadier migration of our ancestors. The Anglo Saxons, that I name Suevii, did not rampage with bloodthirsty cries intent on killing. They came to be farmers!
I would like to offer a commentary to the stills of this marvelous documentary, which can be viewed in its entirety by clicking on the link.
It proved a Eureka moment for me after
all the years of my research and a confirmation also. Many
thanks to Professor Alice Roberts and all the team that
presented such definitive evidence to the true nature and
purpose of the Suevii, our ancestors. And to the exciting
evidence of our ancestors in the West.
