Enthused by reports of a
friend who felt she had had an ‘experience’ near the site of St. Dubricius’
seminary at Hentland, Mary sets the scene by analysing what we do know of the
Arthurian period in general, what is myth and legend, and where such myths and
legends could contain germs of the original truth. Spreading out from Hentland,
she details the possible basis for Mordred’s connection with Mordiford, for
Gawain’s connection with both Hereford and the old kingdom of Erging; with
Uthyr Pendragon’s possible siege of Vortigern at The Doward and for the same
area to be the site for Arthur’s eighth battle.
Includes details of the early British and Welsh kings and families, and of
the Roman Empire.
