A History Mystery...Solved At Last!

The Real King Arthur and Camelot Finally Uncovered!

What's the Deal on King Arthur?

This just in-the real King Arthur was a man named Riothamus!
First of all, the two men had almost the same name! "That soldier is called Riothamus ...- not the man’s actual name, which was Arthur. So he could be referred to as Arthur ‘Riothamus’" says Burgundy Myths and Legends. The men have names that are way too similar. Riathamus' real name actually was Arthur, but he chose to go by two names and be known as Riothamus, similar to Julius 'Ceaser.' The connections between the names are just to similar to simply be coincidental. Over time, the name must've been misinterpreted from King Arthur Riothamus to just plainly King Arthur. It was said in a film about the Middle Ages, that Arthurian stories were passed on for 500 years by mouth, so drastically the name must have slightly changed.
Also, if their names being similar wasn't enough, their traitors have the same name, also. "The names of the traitors in each case are too similar to be simply co-incidental." The name of King Arthur's traitor was Mordred, and the name of the traitor of Arthur Riothamus was Arvandus. Although, a writing refers to Riothamus' traitor by the name of "Morvandus" Coincidence? I think not. Both rulers were betrayed by somebody so close to them for Barbarian enemies. The stories and names are too close to not be connected.
Finally, both men had a similar final battle followed by quite a questionable death. "Riothamus disappears after a fatal battle, without any recorded death. His departing shows that he is going to a town called Avallon (Arthur also left to Avalon after his final battle)" it states in Who was King Arthur? After both of the men's final battles, they disappeared with quite a questionable death. When the two maps of the final battles were drawn on top each other, they seemed to be almost identical. Both the final battles and the departure were identical.
Therefore, we have come to the conclusion that the real King Arthur is none other than Riothamus. Both figures have similar names, traitors, and battles and departure. It only makes sense to link the two.

What's the Deal on Camelot?

It has recently been discovered that the Camelot Castle is actually the Cadbury castle!
First of all, the details seem to match up quite well. "In 1966 a group called the Camelot Research Committee began excavating the site. In the area traditionally known as Athur's Palace, workers discovered the foundation of a great hall...plus the remains of a stone and timber wall." it says in Legends or Lies. Obviously these remains are from somebody of high British class, and they even dated back to 470, around the same time historians think King Arthur lived and reigned. The description of the castle found exactly matches up the data of what a King like Arthur's castle would appear to be. The location, time period, and even the furniture match up to what King Arthur would need, thus making the Cadbury Castle an excellent candidate for Camelot.
Also, the remains seem to match up as well. "The foundations of an extensive timbered hall, and what appears to be the beginnings of an unfurnished church, add further to the speculation, as does the closeness of the site to Glastonbury Tor." The ruins of the former Cadbury Castle indicate that a part of a church or hall used to be there, quite similar to the structure of how a medieval castle that could've been to King Arthur's liking. I know that if the two castles are theorized to have contained the same types of objects and were from the same era, they must be very closely connected.
Finally, the type of person who would live in the Cadbury exactly matches up with king Arthur. "the incomparable size of the Cadbury fort has led to the suggestion that a High-King such as Arthur would be the most likely resident." Only an important British official would be able to afford to live in a place like the Cadbury castle, and who better to match that description than King Arthur himself? Since Cadbury has these high class attributes, we are lead to the conclusion that this castle was the original Camelot.
Thus, since Cadbury's remains and details are exactly what we would have needed in a Camelot, we know that Cadbury Castle is the historical Camelot where King Arthur once roamed.
