THE OTHER TRADITIONAL ACTIONS OF JOSEPH OF ARIMATHEA were to give to British King Gweirydd or George, the white flag surmounted by the red crown which is still the flag of England today, and then to receive a land grant from the King George upon which he founded Glastonbury[1].

As George is almost certainly the well-recorded British King Gweirydd there may be some truth in this, and as the original Glastenic (Glaston near Bury) was at Atherton in the English Midlands that were Gweirydd’s territories where it is still eminently traceable even today, the story is well founded.

If we add in the fact that Joseph of Arimathea was known in Khumric as St Ilid, and he served as the chaplain to the young prince Bran, a great grandson of King Caradoc I. and father of King Caradoc II. At Trefran and Llanilid, some eighteen miles west of Cardiff, there is a clear geographical scenario emerging.
