The legend of King Arthur has been told and retold for centuries. As the kind who united a nation, his is the story of England itself. But what if Arur wasn’t English at all? As writer and Arthurian scholar Adam Ardrey discovered, the reason historians have had little success identifying the historical Arthur may be increcidbly simple: He wasn’t an Englishman. He was from Scotland and many of the familiar symbols of Arthurian legend–the Round Table, the Sword in the Stone, and the Lady of the Lake–are based on very real and still accessible places in the Scottish Highlands.
