Richard of Cirencester

.

Sometimes called “The Monk of Westminster,” an early English chronicler. His chronicle On the Ancient State of Britain was first brought to light by Dr. Charles Julius Bertram, professor of English at Copenhagen in 1747; but the original (like the original of Macpherson’s Ossian and of Joe Smith’s Book of Mormon) does not exist, and grave suspicion prevails that all three are alike forgeries. (See Sanchoniatho.)
