'Arturius - A Quest for Camelot', is the result of six years' research, and the publication explains and proves beyond reasonable doubt the reality and identity of King Arthur.
Using previously overlooked evidence from the 7th and 8th centuries AD, author D. F. Carroll believes he has succeeded in finally solving the mystery.
Most importantly, the book is based on historical evidence. The name Arthur in its 6th Century AD form is Artur, and as the monks who recorded the earliest history wrote in Latin, they recorded the name as Arturius.
Any documents where the name Arthur is spelled with an 'h' are unlikely to have originated from before the 12th Century AD, and are therefore unreliable as evidence of 6th Century history.
A common complaint by readers of books on the subject of King Arthur, is that no matter how long the book, or how packed with information it may be, at the end, the reader is still left asking the question, "but who was Arthur?"
The reason for this is that most writers on the subject of King Arthur cram their books full of information, derived mainly from legends, myths, and poems which are historically of no value, and manage to create the illusion of having explained to you who Arthur really was, where in fact you still do not know the answer to the question, "but who was Arthur?"
In this book, I have used no legends or poems or myths, or the unreliable 'Annals of Wales'. Instead I have used the more reliable 'Annals of Ulster' and 'Annals of Tigernach', together with Adomnan's 'Life of Columba'.
The book is based not on legends, but rather the best available historical evidence.
Therefore, at the end of this book, you will not be left to wonder "who really was Arthur?", because this book will provide a clear and unequivocal answer to that question.
