"Historians have failed to show convincingly that King Arthur existed, for a good reason: they have been looking in the wrong place, in Wales or the West of England. The real Arthur, Alistair Moffat argues, was not a king but a cavalry general, a prince of a Welsh-speaking southern Scottish tribe known as the Votadini by the Romans and the Gododdin by themselves. In a brilliant campaign, fought mostly in Scotland, Arthur defeated the Picts to the north and the Angles to the south. He halted the tide of invasion for a generation and gave Celtic Britain a breathing space to regroup and for parts of it to survive. Alistair Moffat's conclusions are based not only on archaeology and documents but also on an analysis of the ancient place-names of the rivers, hills and settlements of southern Scotland. (His) research leads him in the final chapters to Arthur's headquarters - his Camelot - now truly a lost city where not one stone remains standing upon another. Despite Germanic, Norse and other invasions, Britain has remained in essence a Celtic country. (This book) will restore what our Anglo-Saxon history has hidden from us, a lost sense of our Celtic selves." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny dent on bottom edge of front board. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.
