Saint Elvis Of Preseli

4 Aug

St Elvis

I’ve just come back from a 2 day trip to Pembrokeshire to draw more ancient Neolithic monuments on my quest across South Wales. The first stone we came to is the burial chamber of Saint Elvis. It’s near Saint David’s which is not too far from the Preseli Mountains. Hmmmm! I wonder if Elvis Presley had Welsh ancestors?

I have been travelling across South Wales with Rhondda-born archaeologist Dewi Bowen and Swansea film maker Melvyn Williams, hunting the wild megalith, accompanied by my portable drawing board, portfolio of Fabriano paper and a bag full of assorted artist’s materials.  Dewi is researching his latest book on Neolithic monuments and Melvyn is making a documentary film of our literary and artistic adventures.
