Dinosaurs of Britain/Wales: Part 2

Looking back into the historical records of Britain and Wales, we find many accounts of men seeing and having encounters with dragons (dinosaurs). Many, but not all of these stories were embellished as they were retold or rewritten through the generations. In spite of this, there are a number of historical accounts that are so plain and "as a matter of fact" that they cannot be disregarded as fiction or a figment of someone's imagination.

The following is a quote from the book "Folk-lore and Folk-stories of Wales" which was written 1909 by Welsh historian and author Marie Trevelyan.

Dinosaur History in Britain

In 1887, The Rev. Elias Owen published a work titled "Welsh Folk-Lore: A Collection of the Folk-Tales and Legends of North Wales. In it on page 349-350, he recorded the following: "Mr. Hancock in his "History of Llanrhaiadr-yn-Mochnant, "writes as follows:--

"The legend connected with this stone pillar is, that it was raised in order to prevent the devastation which a winged serpent or dragon (a Wiber) was committing in the surrounding country. The stone was drapped with scarlet cloth, to allure and excite the creature to a furor, scarlet being a colour most intolerably hateful and provoking to it. It was studded with iron spikes, that the reptile might wound or kill itself by beating itself against it. Its destruction, is alleged, was effected by this artifice. It is said to have had two lurking places in the neighborhood, which are still called Nant-y-Wiber, one at Penygarnedd, the other near Bwlch Sychtyn, in the parish of Llansilin, and this post was in the direct line of its flight. Similar legends referring to winged serpents exist in various parts of Wales. In the akjoining parish of Llanarmon-Dyffryn-Ceiriog there is a place called Sarffle (the serpent's hole)"

Another Dragon Report:

A British 14th century scholar and monk by the name of John de Trokelow wrote a chronicle titled Annales. This chronicle was included in a work of historical writings compiled in the mid 19th century which is now called the "Rolls Series."

In Trokelow's chronicle is included this fascinating account:

"Close to the town of Bures, near Sudbury, there has lately appeared, the the great hurt of the countryside, a dragon, vast in body, with a crested head, teeth like a saw, and a tail extending to an enormous length. Having slaughtered the shepherd of a flock, it devoured many sheep."

Like so many other historical accounts, this one seems to be an "as a matter of fact" report of something that happened and was included in the historical record.....The account continues:

"..in order to destroy him, all the country people around were summoned. But when the dragon saw that he was again to be assailed with arrow, he fled into a marsh or mere and there hid himself among the long reeds, and was no more seen."

I have not yet been able to locate the source document online (Rolls Series) for the above account, but the story was recounted in a book that can be purchased online: (cit. Simpson, J. British Dragons.)

If you continue to examine the evidence you too will realize that so many reports from across so many cultures throughout the world can no longer be ignored.

Dinosaurs did not die off millions of years ago. They have always existed with man. So what really happened to the dinosaurs, and why do we find so many fossils of them in the ground? Watch the FREE movie: Forbidden History to find out.
