Author Kaye D. Hennig and photographer Terrance Hennig have discovered and photographed ancient art - unusual, sculptured images that they believe can be connected to a historical King Arthur and his lost kingdom. Just released by Design Magic Publishing, their book King Arthur Lord of the Grail is a fascinating coffee-table style book that relates the story of the couple's search for the truth about Camelot. The book contains photographs of giant sculptures that the couple believes were created as a record of a historical dark-age people who became known as the Arthurians. The photographs reveal royal figures and helmeted faces, images carved in stone that appear to be portraits of real individuals. According to author Kaye Hennig, "This is a book that could turn legend into history!"
The couple's explorations and research began over a decade ago as a search for physical evidence of a legendary kingdom. In the end, it became something else … the author's spiritual quest to understand the beliefs of the ancients and to discover truths that lay hidden within the secrets of the Grail. The couple researched sites in Britain and in France, searching the locations that they believed might contain evidence of the culture of these ancients. Ultimately, they discovered a lost world … one where ancient queens were revered in hidden chapels, where Grail priestesses kept sacred secrets, and where worthy individuals sought to complete a Grail quest.
The couple also journeyed to probable sites of King Arthur's Grail castles and his Isle of Avalon, and searched for the locations of the Merlin's Grail chapels. The author's interpretations of the ancient symbols they discovered in the art, and her analysis of the hidden messages she found within the literature offer explanations for the disappearance of a historical people and help to unlock the closely guarded secrets of the Holy Grail. The author also identifies evidence on ancient sites, in medieval art, and in architecture in Scotland and northern England - information that appears to disclose links between these legendary ancients and the Knights Templar, the early Scottish Freemasons, and other secret orders and mysterious organizations … groups that she believes have continued to guard the ancient secrets of King Arthur. In a surprising conclusion, the author discloses corroborative evidence that seems to confirm her theories about these sites: images created by Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci and descriptions in the works of Spain's famous novelist, Miguel de Cervantes - people she identifies as guardians, "Lords of the Grail."
Many of the sites featured in the book may be visited in the UK. The book includes a map of the sites and detailed descriptions of the evidence that exists there. But the author advises, "We invite readers to conduct their own quests - visit the sites, consider the evidence, and come to their own conclusions." However, she believes, "Reason will prevail over romance, and legend will become history."
