This is a list of candidate matches or synonyms or analogies of the 9 battle sites of "Arthur".
Necessary background is that our discovery was that the 9 battle sites of Arthur of the Historia Britonum of Nennius match the 8 of the 9 forts of the Saxon Shore of the Notita Dignitatum from Yarmouth to Portchester/Portsmouth.

[B][U]Brief explanatory note:[/U][/B]
These are just notes addressing questions about Nennius and about Gildas in relation to our 12 battles discovery which were raised by people in the forum topic 'why no more king Arthurs?' (posts 202, (204(-5),) 206-7) (pages 20-21).
