Is it true, that King Arthur will show up with his sword, in dance clubs (built on his home land) that show disrespect.

He appears in anglo-saxon knight wear (though he hated saxons), wielding a sword, while steeding a horse.

He shows up in hologram form. Very transparent!

HA HA HA! There is no particular club, which I can tell you about? This Arthur is more like a transparent hologram, and not a physical being. He appears, when people cause too much noise.

Hmmm, Aiden... 'Anglo-Saxon knight wear'? Is that like chainmail pyjamas? That would cause a stir in 'dance clubs'. Or do you mean 'knight clubs'. Maybe if he turned up in armour it could even be 'heavy metal' Exclamation Are you sure, as he was on a horse, you weren't having some kind of knight-mare? Rolling Eyes

Thank you, bitterbuck. I suppose, though, that in a way, ghosts are the original 'holograms'. After all, both are 3D 'projected images'.

Returning to King Arthur. As with Robin Hood, so much has been written about him, yet he still remains elusive. I guess because we all have our own ideas about who or what he was. Meaning different things to different people. So, not surprisingly, he is forever being 're-evaluated' and 're-interpreted'. And, I would add 're-invented'.

At the 'core' of each 'legendary' figure, I feel there is a 'historical' individual, around whom tales and myths have been woven, like elaborate tapestries.

Aiden is right in that Arthur fought against the Anglo-Saxons. Most likely he lived in the late 5th/early 6th century. During the collapse of Roman Britain. It was at this time [ca 470], that Cadbury Castle, Somerset was impressively refortified, and housed a very sophisticated ruler and his retinue. The first known writer to suggest Cadbury as being Camelot is the antiquarian John Leland in 1542.

This was contemporary with a fort built on Glastonbury Tor, excavated 1964-66. Again Mediterranean amphorae were found, suggesting that this ruler traded widely. A bronze 'Celtic' head was also unearthed. As well as 5th/6th century graves. The oldest story connecting King Arthur with Glastonbury is told by Caradoc of Llancarfan [ca 1130-1150] in his Life of Gildas. Queen Guinevere was rescued [by Arthur]from the Tor top fort of Melwas 'King of the Summer Land'.

Caerleon-on-Usk is also associated with Arthur. Around 830 the historian Nennius wrote Historia Brittonum. In the list of Arthur's battles [against the Saxons] was one at 'The City Of The Legion' [possibly Caerleon]. In his History of the Kings of Britain, Geoffrey of Monmouth [ca 1136-8]said Arthur held court at Caerleon. In 1587 Thomas Churchyard similarly associated Caerleon with Arthur. In 1926 the amphitheatre was excavated [says data-wales.co.uk]

"with support from Britain's Daily Mail newspaper and the Loyal Knights of the Round Table of America."

Says it all really Very Happy
