Lee Pennington at the Los Lunas stone in NM; it’s an abbreviated version of the Ten Commandments written in ancient Khumry.

We’ve arranged for a new LES public presentation on Thursday, March 9 at 6:30 PM:  “King Arthur in America” presented by Lee Pennington.

Think you know all there is to know about King Arthur?

Well did you know that there were really two King Arthurs who lived 250 years apart and that scholars have mistakenly combined them into one individual?

Did you know that King Arthur II (of the Round Table fame) came to America in 573 with his brother, Prince Madoc, and that King Arthur was killed here (in Kentucky actually)?

Did you know that King Arthur’s body was mummified and was taken back Wales and the exact place of his burial is known?

This is not fiction! The evidence is compelling.

Don’t miss Lee Pennington, researcher, film maker, and poet, presenting “King Arthur in America.”


  • In 562 AD Britain was the site of a catastrophic event—most likely a comet striking the Island country. The land was devastated. The king at the time was none other than the legendary King Arthur.  King Arthur’s brother, Prince Madoc, was at the time the fleet admiral of a substantial Welsh navy. Madoc was at sea when the comet struck and was blown totally off course and was gone for 10 years.
  • England was mainly uninhabitable and Arthur took his people and army into Lydaw which is now Normandy. Records say that in 572 Arthur returned to Wales, and he and Madoc gathered 700 ships at Milford Haven and sailed west to Anwan, “that which is beyond.”
  • Having missed Ireland, there is only one place, sailing west, they could have gone—North America!  Other records tell of King Arthur being killed in Anwan and being brought back to Wales in a celebrated voyage described in a number of extant manuscripts
  • Lee Pennington will present compelling evidence that the Welsh records are totally correct in stating that Wales’ most famous king did indeed come to America and was killed here.
