Read full description of the books Arthur and the Lost Kingdoms:Interesting to read, and I was quite willing to be convinced here -- I was already aware of the Strathclyde Welsh speakers, as they turn up in an Anglo-Saxon poem I translated. And it'd be much less annoying for Arthur to prove to be Scottish than English, and an argument I've seen elsewhere.
Moffat relies on place names and folk memories, though, which is dubious ground -- look at the proliferation of places that claim to have to do with Robin Hood, or indeed all the places in Wales and Cornwall that claim Arthur. It's possible he really was in all of those places, but Moffat doesn't convince me of a northern Camelot.
