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.

Still Learning

Partly out of idle curiosity, partly because it might inform my next major post on Ulysses S. Grant when that happens, I was going through the Official Records. Particularly, I was going through correspondence in early 1864, curious to see some of the process of Grant planning and evolving his 1864 strategy.
