These battles might be expected to be found along borders and in zones of potential conflict. Yet this is not what is discovered. In addition the simplistic idea of Romano-Britons holding back invading Anglo-Saxons is found wanting. Instead we discover a far more nuanced political and cultural situation. One with increasing evidence of continuation of land use and the indigenous population. The most Romanised and urbanized regions of the south and east are the very areas that experienced the arrival of Germanic settlement. The conclusion gives the reader a new insight into what sort of man Arthur was and the nature of the battles he fought.
“Tony Sullivan has a genuine flair for the kind of narrative storytelling style that is accessibly informative for both academia and the non-specialist general reader.” ~Midwest Book Review
“The detective work is great… In many ways, this is a superb recap by historian as detective, starting with the remnants of Roman Britain holding out against the Angles and Saxons and proceeding through a literature analysis matched with geographical analysis.” ~Historical Miniatures Gaming Society
