Thank you for your opinions on "Arthur".
Clearly this author is making sensationalist claims.
I am wondering whether literacy continued at this site through the Anglo-Saxon conquest,
as a few inscriptions can clear up a lot of confusion.
As a general principle, one written inscription can have the data content of several digs.
Personally, I am more interested in SW Scotland and the Roman frontier feoderati:http://abob.libs.uga.edu/bobk/ccc/ce082202.html
From what I could make out during a brief field survey which I made three decades back,
most of the antiquarians in that area died in the trenches during the First World War,
and the area is nearly unworked.
At some point I will have to return the "geological specimens" which I mailed home.
I will mention in connection with this that one "Aedan Artur" appears in the life of St. Columba.
There is also a "Paradiso Muir Bolc" mentioned in it as well.
As I don't play golf, can not drink whiskey now, and do not generate much internal body heat,
all in all I'd rather be troweling through tsunami deposits on Crete,
or excavating back church yards in Cholula.
Usually people believe what they want to believe until reality intrudes.
