"The King Arthur Conspiracy" Book by Simon Andrew Stirling

Recommended Posts

I have recently finished reading this book and found it absolutely fascinating! In it Stirling STRONGLY contends that "King" Arthur was Scottish. Stirling has clearly studied all the ancient Celtic texts about this subject and has made astonishing connections! First of all, Arthur was born on one of the seven islands in Loch Leven, the one known as St. Serf's, and this saint was Cynon, son of Clydno of Edinburgh and he ended up also being called St. Kentigern or affectionately Mungo, who founded Glasgow Cathedral. And Cynon's sister Creirwy one Beltane night in 558 conceived Arthur with Aidan, Prince of the Forth and son of Gabran. Stirling has pieced together where all of the 12 battles Arthur was victorious were fought and the 13th one at the plain of Camno beside the river Isla. He was betrayed by a man sent by St. Columba, who poisoned him with a "loin-spear". His surviving knights carried him to the West Coast and shipped him to Mull, where they chopped off his head and buried the body above Pennyghael. The head they took to Iona, which was Afalon! The Island of Apples, which Stirling explains were the apples created by the gall-wasp on oak trees! And the oak grove on Iona was surrounded by a hedge of blackthorn, "Draegan" in Welsh! And Aidan, Arthur's father, was also known as Uther Pendragon. And they buried the head in Sithean Mor, which was also used for lighting the Beltane fires through which the animals were driven and had or has a room in it, where Arthur's head was placed on a cloth of gold on a rock. Oh, and as a lad, Arthur also underwent a cauldron ceremony, probably in North Wales, after which his new name was Bran! Raven. (Think of the story surrounding Tower Hill in London and the ravens. That most likely never happened! The head WAS moved, but to another mound on Iona, also facing east.)

Anyway, there is a vast amount of information in this book, a real GEM! And I would love for all these places related to the REAL Arthur, the Battle Duke or also Imperator to be explored in one of the documentaries or series of them by Gareth on one of his WALKS! I expect he may have to get in touch with Simon Andrew Stirling about this, but perhaps not, as all these places are accessible by the public and so are the ancient texts he studied.

I was listening to a show a few nights ago about Arthur in which the presenter claimed that Attila the Hun and Arthur were one and the same person. I'd never heard that one before as it was my understanding that Attila did not cross into Britain though tributes might have been sent to him from the British Isles. I can't say I was convinced by the man's argument, especially when he stated a number of incorrect facts about British history.

The king arthur conspiracy is that arthur is the sun and his round table is the zodiac where his knights are the houses of the zodiac

 

ALL the celtic nations claim king arthur as theirs because it is part of all of their mythology. In scotland guinevere is said to be buried in a kirkyard in meigle, merlin is said to be buried at drumelzier and 'arthurs seat' is a hill in the middle of edinburgh which is associated with the story of the goddodin.

 

There is also the lothians which you could say relates to lance-a-lot and the isle of mey was said to have been a sanctuary to 9 priestesses which could then lay claim to being the isle of avalon

 

Of course if you speak to a welshman or a cornishman or a breton they will all have their own equivalent sites relating to arthur

 

'arthur lives'- say the druids
