Quest for King Arthur’s Camelot
Here in the UK, we have lots of places named after the legendary King Arthur, but we’ve yet to find any historical evidence of Arthur’s castle and its famous Round Table. So where exactly was Camelot Castle?
1. Caerleon, Wales?
An old fortified Roman town, where you can still see the ruins of a scenic amphitheatre and the Roman baths.
An iron age hill fort, the site of a dig by the Camelot Research Committee in 1966. From its flat top, you can see Glastonbuy Tor, believed to be the ancient and magical isle of Avalon.
3. Kelliwic, near Padstow, Cornwall?
A town close to the River Camel at Camelford, a possible location for King Arthur’s final battle against his evil nephew Mordred.
Many places in Scotland have Arthurian names, including the famous "Arthur’s Seat" in Edinburgh.
You can actually stay in this modern hotel within sight of the ruined Tintagel Castle, legendary home of Arthur’s mother Igraine.
The fabulous medieval Camelot Castle as seen in popular Arthurian films is probably pure fantasy – sorry US readers!
So where did I decide to set my new series about King Arthur’s daughter, Rhianna Pendragon? You’ll need to read the books to find out!
