... is currently Chairman.. A previous paper [1 discussed the attempt of the Russian mathematician, A.T. Fomenko, to deny the existence of an entire 687-year period of English history. According to Fomenko, the kings generally believed to have ruled in England from AD 640-1327 were alter egos of Byzantine rulers, some of whom were, in turn, duplicates ... to take this into account, the Roman occupation of Britain ended only 8, not 15, centuries ago.
