Avery AH1429).Rowlands, Henry (1655-1723), Church of England clergyman and antiquary, theorized that Anglesey was the ancient metropolitan seat of the druids, and ascribed the founding of Britain to the Phoenicians, a belief in which he followed a less capable observer, Aylett Sammes, but also anticipated the much greater William Stukeley. Rowlands expounded his theories in Mona antiqua restaurata: an archaeological discourse on the antiquities, natural and historical, of the Isle of Anglesey, the antient seat of the British Druids (1723).
