skeleton Arthurian Britain timeline (Caesar to Egbert)

Posted November 16th, 2016 at 09:46 PM by gold heart
Updated November 17th, 2016 at 08:26 PM by gold heart

This is only a rough composite timeline of British history from Caesar to Egbert. We have only given key words/names not full details.

Certain people in the forum said our battle sites of "Arthur" discovery was "only one small part of dark age British history", and even though it wrongly minimizes/sidelines our battles of "Arthur" discovery, we realized that one extra proof that people seem to require is resolving the Britons/Saxons/battles history of the times around (before/during/after) the battles, to show that the south-east sites are ruled-in and west/north sites are ruled-out.

First we post this first edition of our new timeline. Then we will progressively add points drawn/concluded from the timeline (re our south-east 9 sites versus their west/north sites (like Caerleon)) as comments to the blog post. We may also later add any missing entries to the timeline (edit the timeline).

AC/WA = Annales Cambriae / Welsh Annals;
ASC = Anglo-Saxon Chronicle;
ByT = Brut y Tywysogion;
DEB = Gildas;
EH = Bede;
HB = "Nennius"/'Historia Britonum';
HRB = Geoffrey of Monmouth;
ND = Notita Dignitatum;
PG = PaGur.

links for fuller details of timelines of the different sources:
Gildas/DEB, Ethelwerd, Nennius/HB, Geoff/HRB:
Our 9 battle sites of Arthur discovery:

Just before the timeline i wish to post this note about the continual rejection of our 9 battle sites of Arthur discovery/thesis.
I can see they are never going to acknowledge my discovery (that the 9 battle sites of "Arthur" of "Nennius"/'Historia Britonum' match the 9 Saxon Shore sites from Yarmouth to Portsmouth) while i am alive, because they use excuse that it can not be accepted (despite the stark evidencs) until all the rest of dark age Britons/Saxons/battles history around it is also re/solved, and that we have to be able to write it all up the way they stipulate. It is wrong but that is that, i have to let it go. I can not waste my "life" solving the all the rest of dark age British history too, since i have other things i need and want to do, and it wouldn't be worth it anyway (all the more so because i'd be 100 yrs old and ready to die by the time i meet all their excessive demands, if i haven't died or lost (more) ability/health from the poison tap water etc long before then).
We gave lots of evidences, quite a few of them Stark, that the 4 sets of 9 sites (HB, PG, ND/SS, and actual sites) (plus also the Wonders of Britain) absolutely positively match at least literarily. But they won't accept all our evidences just because of 1 piddly thing for each site, and because we don't also solve all of dark age British history, and because still not written good enough. Our discovery and all our last few years hard work have all been for nothing but waste of my time from doing other things. (Don't any beneficiary bashers ever let me hear you call us bludgers ever again.) We were necessarily not asking for riches or fame, just asking for at the least an acknowledgement/credit that the discovery that the 2 lists of 9 sites certainly seem to at least literarily match, or for help/aid to be able to improve the thesis/paper (eg i need clean water, and need help to shift to UK).

    From this timeline we can say:

    - "(King) Arthur" is not Arthur son of Aedan, because Aedan is later in the timeline.

    - York "died" in 501, which makes less likely it is the 'city of the legion'?

    - "1st christian British king" Lucius may be Lucius Artorius Castus.

    - Caledonian wood of Caesar can not be north of Thames.

    - W Saxons took too long time to advance to the likes of "Sarum", and also then jumped too quickly to the likes of "Bedford"/"Buckinghamshire".

    (More points to come when able.)

    Some more things we can maybe say from timeline:

    - Bede jumps from 447/456 to 596 (except for 565 mention later).

    - The closest of the 3 or 4 'City of the legion' candidates (Caerleon, Chester, Richborough, York?) in date is Rutupi/Richborough.

    - Modern historians are dishonest/deceptive translating ASC names into theoretical matches (eg "Lenbury"/"Limbury" instead of Liganburh).

    (More points to come when able.)

    Some more things we can maybe say from timeline (and/or timeline's sources) :

    - 3 of the 571 battle sites appear to be same as (a later Saxon re/atking of) Arthur's: Liganburh ~ city of legion, Egonesham ~ Guinnion, Bensington ~ Bassas; (This would recall Gildas saying their cities were taken over.) Bedcanford might be Camlan?

    - Severus ("sea to sea") (189/207, 447, 632) may link with "Severn" of Nennius/HB/Wonders.

    - There may be a link between St Patrick (40 yrs, 405, 428, 429/430, 438, 457), metropolis of Padarn/Paternus, Petroc, Pederydan (658), and Peter (601-3, 616/617-618). Cruc Mawr might link with Croagh-Patrick, Cruachan-Aichle, Cruc Occident, Mt Carno, Mynde, Minmanton?
    [In our 12 battles paper Padarn and Cruc Mawr link with 'city of the legion'/Richborough.]

    - Gildas' dates range is 421 - 512/572 (unless a link with Elvod or Hilda); David's dates range is 458/540 - 601/640; Arthur's dates range is 180/350/383/421/454 - 650/700.

    - The name "Andred" (477, 491, 756) is quite similar to Agned.

    - Sts Julius & Aaron are more likely in the nearer/more Roman south-east quarter of Britian. St Julius origins is best explained by Julius Caesar. St Alban (283, 304, 429) is best explained by Dover/Albion/Downs. (Rutupi & Alban dates coincide.) Campus Gaius may possibly link with Caesar's landing (esp if also Judeu)?

    - Kent is linked with Christ and St Mary (694) like Arthur/Guinnion/Badon.

    (More points to come when able.)
