It also incorporates a whole body of new material that shows that Monmouth was, basically, right. The Arthurian Legend can be fully rationalized by uncontroversial Insular and Continental sources which trace his birth to ca. AD 449, his departure from his kingdom in 466 and his battles across France. This books Riothamus does not, however, vanish from history but moves east and, in 476, conquers Rome, much as Monmouth confusingly said. In 489 Arthurs name appears on an Italian legal document, but by 495 he had returned to Britain to fight his famous Battle of Badon, 14 miles east of Bath. By tracking the history of the Scirians, the conquerors of Rome, through the material culture they left in the towns they settled, this book finds a perfect match with the places mentioned in the Arthurian Legend. Use of the right historical records allow the enigma to be untangled clearly.
