You're funny, you know? More than a decade has passed since, and I was
happy that I didn't really fall for any of those, so I quickly forgot
about them. And, even more, I was happy that I could leave the two or
three books I have from him at home when I moved over to Aberystwyth, so
I can't even search for examples. I will see if I can find something on
my next trip home, which will, hopefully, be in about a month.

Well, as far as I have heard yes, he is a more influential member of one
of the larger British Druid orders. Which per se wouldn't at all be
problematic, wouldn't he mix factual evidence with selffabricated stuff
and passing it of as historical facts in his books.
