Lightbulb Roman Londinium

What if Christ was Flogged and Crucified in England back then....makes sense.

As an aside, could it be that Pontius Pilate was schooled in the Celtic Druid tradition so prevalent in Scotland at that time? The Druid motto was "Truth against the world". Does this explain Pilate asking Jesus "What is truth?", possibly a Druidic password given by one initiate to another?

The Roman settlement of Londinium, shown as it was in about AD 200, eventually developed into the modern metropolis of London...

Little is known of Pilate. There is an old tradition linking the birthplace of Pilate with the small village of Bisenti, Samnite territory, in today's Abruzzo region of Central Italy. It has been asserted that Pilate may have been born in Fortingall, Perthshire, in Scotland.

During the 2nd and 1st centuries BC, Gaul fell under Roman rule: Gallia Cisalpina was conquered in 203 BC and Gallia Narbonensis in 123 BC. Gaul was invaded by the Cimbri and the Teutons after 120 BC, who were in turn defeated by the Romans by 101 BC. Julius Caesar finally subdued the remaining parts of Gaul in his campaigns of 58 to 51 BC. Roman control of Gaul lasted for five centuries, until the last Roman rump state, the Domain of Soissons, fell to the Franks in AD 486. During this time, the Celtic culture had become amalgamated into a Gallo-Roman culture and the Gaulish language was likely extinct by the 6th century.

Gaul on the eve of the Gallic Wars. Roman ethnography divides Gaul into five parts, Gallia Cisalpina, Gallia Narbonensis, Gallia Aquitania, Gallia Celtica (largely corresponding to the later province Gallia Lugdunensis) and Gallia Belgica.

Josephus claimed the Gauls were descended from Gomer, the grandson of Noah. Hellenistic etiology connects the name with Galatia (first attested by Timaeus of Tauromenion in the 4th c. BC), and it was suggested the association was inspired by the "milk-white" skin (γάλα, gala, "milk") of the Gauls (Greek: Γαλάται, Galatai, Galatae).

There is a Green Hill far away....Glastonbury Tor is a hill at Glastonbury, Somerset, England, which features the roofless St. Michael's Tower...Starting at the North Pole and heading south to the South Pole, the 2nd meridian west passes through...Scotland - passing just east of Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire...Passing just east of Aberdeen...passing through Berwick-upon-Tweed ...Bay of Biscay and Queen Maud Land, claimed by Norway...

Somer set...Sumer Seat...

The spot seems to have been called Ynys yr Afalon (meaning "The Isle of Avalon") by the Britons, and it is believed by some to be the Avalon of Arthurian legend.

Edin burgh...Edin...Edin (É.DIN, E2.DIN, E-din) is a Sumerian term meaning "steppe" or "plain", written ideographically with the cuneiform signs.
