Here is a bit of news about history: Now, the search may finally be over. Over the years, well-recognized linguistic processes would have reduced Camulodunum to Camelot. The full story may be found in an article in the Bangor University web site at https: Carroll has made his book Arturius — A Quest for Camelot available for free download on the Internet.
This book makes a strong case that Arthur was the son of King Aidan the Treacherous, who ruled near Manau Gododdin, in the South of present-day Scotland. Carroll apparently succeeds in identifying places and persons in the legends, including Camelot, Camallan, Avalon, Guinevere, Morgan, Mordred, and Merlin.
Gaelic was never spoken in Wales or England, but would naturally have been used if Arthur was a Prince of Scots.
A 7th-century Scottish history mentions Arturius, son of King Aidan. An 8th-century history describes Arthur as a warrior in the region of Manau Gododdin. The Battle of Camallan, where Arthur and Mordred killed each other, has controversial location and date.
Camallan may have been the crooked Allan River in Scotland. If the son of Aidan MacGabran, a King of Scots Dalriada, was indeed the famous warrior Arthur, it will answer two otherwise very puzzling questions:.
Welsh chronicles make it clear Arthur was an historic person, so why are the place-names unidentifiable? Strathclyde had ceased to be part of the Briton dominion, so naturally names changed, and memories become blurred.
Why do the Scots, traditional enemies of Britons, claim Arthur as their own hero? There was a recent TV show about similar archeological finds, on the Travel Channel. Arthurian scholar Geoffrey Ashe has argued persuasively for Cadbury Castle, a hillfort in Somerset, as a possible site for Camelot. He also has presented an interesting candidate for an early source of the Arthurian legend: Riothamus, a late 5th century C.
I once lived there. We boasted that Colchester was the oldest recorded town in Britain. The town of Colchester in Essex about miles from Huddersfield was called Camulodunum and is officially the oldest town in Britain. The same claim was made for Colchester a few years ago, but was rejected. Adam Ardrey is the man who was interviewed in the TV show mentioned above. The David Carroll book does not appear to be free, but almost 20 British pounds for the print version, or almost 5 pounds for a Kindle version.
I have used Mr. Lucius Artorius Castus is the best candidate for King Arthur in my opinion, and I hope to prove that many other Arthurian figures, Merlin, Lancelot, and Guinevere, all truly existed as well, and were connected to Castus.
The research may take years, but I believe in it, and hope that one day I can share my findings with the world. Name and email address are required. Your email address will not be published. You are commenting using your WordPress.
