Typical of the bloody Scots, claiming that Artos was one of them! The truth is far more complex. Artos (Latin for bear), if he existed, would have
been Romano-British, one of the last great war lords in the old provice of Britannia at the start of the Dark Ages. Forget all the stuff about Myrddin
(Merlin), the grail and so on, that seems to have been added on in Medieval stories about him. The real Artos would have been fighting against the
invading Saxon barbarians. The funny thing is that there might well have been some victories against the English - we know that something happened
around 500AD, which stopped the Saxon advance dead in its tracks and even rolled it back a bit in places for 50 years.
