Far from the traditional, mythical view of Arthur, Camelot, and the Knights of the Round Table, the possible historical events of the King Arthur legend comes shortly after the Roman Empire withdrew from Britain, leaving a power vacuum that migrating peoples like the Saxons would come and exploit. It is fiercely argued about the origins of Arthur and where the Battle of Camlann was fought. The earliest record is in ‘The Annals of Wales’ in the tenth century, and later Geoffrey of Monmouth of the tale of the ‘Strife of Camlann,’ neither revealing the location of the battle – was it in Wales, or Kernow on the banks of the River Camel, or in the North of (what is now) England? Whatever the truth, the Defender of the Britons remains an endearing legend.
