This was founded in sub Roman times and perhaps even earlier. It is also called Cor Tewdws (College of Theodosius) or Caergwrgon. Its archaeological remains are to be found in a garden on the north side of the present churchyard. It is situated in Llan Illtud Fawr (Llantwit Major). Among the students who studied there are St David, St. Samson, St Paul Aurelian, St Gildas, St. Tudwal, St. Baglan and Prince Maelgwn Gwynedd. It is often called the oldest university in the world. It was wide open to raids, so was destroyed in 446 A. D. and refounded by St. Illtud Fawr in 508 A. D. It was destroyed again by Vikings, then by Normans, but rebuilt by 1111. The church has an inscription to Prince Rhys ap Arthfael Morganwg, who died in the mid ninth century. St. Samson later moved to Ynys Byr (Caldey Island). I would like to find a definitive connection back to Llan Dduw or Landew, said to have been founded in the year 37 A. D. across teh sea from Llan Illtud Fawr.

This is most interesting again, and brilliant research. Edmund Mortimer was married to the daughter of Owain Glyndw^r and I think he was the grandson of Roger de Mortimer. The DNA research by Prof. Brian Sykes, as you probably know, traces the origin of the indigeneous British to fishing villages in north east Spain, and the web shows many Celtic words in the Iberian languages.

Subj: The 1st King of Portugal, Alfonso “O conquistador” (the Conqueror)
Hello Myron. Although my great grandmother on my maternal side was Portuguese, I know little of Portuguese history, only about the colonisation of Macau. During WW2, my mother, who was fluent in Portuguese changed her identity to Portuguese, changed her surname to “da Silva” and escaped from the Japanese invasion of Hong Kong by becoming a cook for the Portuguese army in Macau, which remained neutral. So it was a lovely surprise to trace a line today to Alonso “the Conqueror” as a distant ancestor. The Portuguese consider him to be the founder of their nation and he is much admired as a warrior and a statesman. In an email I sent yesterday it traced a line via the Vaughans of Llanedi to Ann Berkeley daughter of Lord Maurice Berkeley (b. circa 1330). Maurice Berkeley was the son of Thomas de Berkeley (b. circa 1296) and Margaret de Mortimer (b. circa 1307). Margaret de Mortimer was the daughter of Roger de Mortimer, Earl of March and the granddaughter of Edmund de Mortimer, Lord of Wigmore,/Margaret de Fienne of Herefordshire. Margaret de Fienne (b. circa 1270) was the daughter of Sir William Fienne, Baron de Fienne de Tingry, and Blanche de Brienne of France. Blanche de Brienne was the daughter of Jean de Brienne, Grand Bouteiller de France. Jeane de Brien was the son of Jean l de Brienne, King of Jerusalem and Emperor of Constantinople (b circa 1170 Acer, Palestine) and Infanta dona Berenguela of Castile and Leon, Spain. This infanta was the daughter of don Alfonso lX, King of Leon and Castile and Infanta dona Uraca de Portugal (b. circa 1150 Coimbra, Portugal). Also she was the granddaughter of don Alfonso l “the Conqueror” Henriquez, the first King of Portugal. Isso e tudo por agara. Muitas felicidades. Vivienne

The working group and others here may like to see the overall activity report from which the overview file is prepared every two weeks. As you can see, there is a vast number of visits, and this month Google went crazy and downloaded everything on www.aias.us for several days in succession. Google Scholar contains all the UFT papers and Spanish translations. From this list I select by eye the top quality identifiable interest in the university, institute and similar sectors and Michael Jackson interweaves the results with the blog in order to have the blog archived quarterly at the National Library of Wales and British Library. This mht file does not go on the blog and is kept confidential. I consider the archiving to be of the utmost importance. Human memory fades very fast and after a few years only the archives are left, so it becomes very easy to distort history out of all recognition if the historical source documents are not kept very carefully.
Congratulations on the well deserved success of Cambridge International Science Publishing (CISP, www.cisp-publishing.com), particularly in these tough economic times for scientific journals. Quarterly is fine with me, and I look forward to meeting you in July and thanks to Kerry Pendergast for organizing the Third AIAS Conference. As you can see the vast amount of open source interest in ECE is by now a permanent feature of physics, and your publishing standards are excellent. It would be a good idea to discuss the various reviews and textbooks planned by the AIAS Fellows. So this cooperation has everything to gain and nothing to lose. I also suggest a Spanish language version of the journal in view of the great interest across the Spanish speaking world.

Sorry about my silence, I look forward to meeting you in July, CISP is going from strength to strength and I want to discuss with you publishing plans, I think we should change the journal to quarterly proceedings or something like that

As usual this is recorded on the last day of the month before the main file is overwritten, and is found at the end of the attached 241 page book of feedback for universities, institutes and similar since April 30th 2004. This is only about 2% of the vast total interest in ECE theory, sustained at this very intense level for a decade. Obviously, ECE unified physics has matured as a new school of thought and is here to stay. It has also pioneered a new and hugely successful method of education. It makes standard physics almost entirely obsolete. For May 2013 to date for www.aias.us there were 83,739 hits from 16,731 distinct visits (about 170,000 readings), 56,426 page views, 12.25 gigabytes downloaded due to several complete site downloads, mainly by Google Inc. of California.

I will be working as usual on the second volume of my autobiography and tomorrow on UFT243 applying the new ECE theory of particle collisions to the Einstein theory of specific heats. The next stage of the autobiography will cover the final few months of my stay at Aberystwyth and how I defeated the administrative hostility by producing regular high quality papers. I kept on doing this until the present, when administrative disruption has been eliminated in favour of free thought. I mentioned Cor Tewdws University this morning, founded about 500 A. D. by St Illtud Fawr (the Great) about forty miles from here in Llan Illtud Fawr (Llantwit Major), and cannot help concluding that the intellectual level in sub Roman Britain was higher than it is today, in the interval between getting rid of one despot, the Roman Empire, and another, The Vikings turned into Normans. “Tewdwr” or Tudor is Theodoric, and Tewdws is Theodosius, two Greek derived names showing the Hellenic influence on the Celtic Insular Culture (The Age of the British and Irish Saints). I hope that the autobiography will be of some use in reforming the educational system, but with high student fees, and low standards I see self education as the only education. This was also the philosophy of St. Iltud Fawr, and back before him to the Druids in time immemorial.
This is Cor Tewdws or the College of Theodosius in Cwm Hodnant, Llan Illtud Fawr, near a place called Cardiff I have never heard of. It was founded in about 500 by St Illtud of Britanny and at its peak had 7 Halls, 400 houses and 2,000 students, including Taliesin, Gildas and Dewi Sant (St David, my distant ancestral cousin). It predates St Edmund Hall Oxford or Peterhouse Cambridge by about seven hundred years. Patricius or Padraig (St. Patrick) was a student here when he was captured and taken to Ireland. St Illtud is said to be a teacher of St. David. It was attacked by assorted skinheads and destroyed by Uncle Olaf in 987 (Vikings), but restored by 1111. The Vikings were early string theorists and just as destructive.
