Geoffrey of Monmouth Preface

My main intent is to expose the fraudulent authorship of several works back in the twelfth century which were concocted wholly or interpolated by Henry Blois, the Bishop of Winchester, Abbot of Glastonbury and brother of King Stephen. This work exposes the existence of an Island in Devon, today called Burgh Island and its connection to Joseph of Arimathea and a tin mining heritage existing into antiquity.
