Malbork (Marienburg) would be a great location don't you think? I am slightly biassed since I did my dissertation on the Teutonic Knights.

Would the villaian be Lord Fear or Mogdred?

It would rpbably be best for one of the books to be made into a film!

Well, if it was made in Hollywood the plot'd probably be the story of the plucky American hill-fort of "Dunce-hellm", where the good ol', all-American, yankee boy Dungeon Master Treguardberg leads a heroic resistance group fighting a war for truth, justice and the American way, against the evil occupying forces of the Opposition led by the callous, sneaky, slimy, brutal English warlord and aristocrat, Lord Smyth-Ponsonby-Cornwallis Fear.

Some Americans go back in time and meet Treguard, but with one problem they don't speak Medieval English and because of their strange clothes are suspected of being witches or something and burnt.

I always hate those movies where Americans meet King Arthur.

They always refered to England, but there was no England then so Arthur would've spoken a mixture of old British and Latin.

There was no such language as English then, true, but there's NEVER been any such language as British either. It would've been Gaelic or early Welsh I think.

When I refered to Medieval English I meant in treguard's time not Arthur's.

The language which is often refered to as Old British is very similar to Welsh and you would not have got Gaelic in Souther Britain because Gaelic is Irish. Arthur could ahve spoken Cornish.

You'd have to have a gragon, either Smirky or Owen
Catacombties would be wicked
Ariadne
Dreaded Khar

Actually Gaelic can be Irish OR Scots, and in any case I was responding to your third paragraph when you were talking about King Arthur.

Gaelic would be in northern Britain not the South, that was my point and the reason why it is also Scotch is because the Scots came from Ireland. Read up on the Kngdom of Dalriata.

No, it isn't called "Scotch", it's called "Scots" or "Scottish". Scotch is a drink.

The Scots did not "come from" Ireland... the Scoti came from Ireland. The race we call the Scots are a fusion of Scoti settlers, Britons from Strathclyde, and the native Picts. And they were not the Dalriata, they were the Dalriadha Gaels.

Yes, Gaelic was more likely to be a northern dialect, but so what? You're making the classic error of assuming that Arthur was from the south, when in truth we have little idea what part of Britain he would have lived in. The stereotype is that he was Cornish, but there's no real evidence that he was (in fact, there's no direct evidence that he ever existed at all). He might very conceivably have been found in what is now south Scotland, near the forest of Caledon or the city of Roxburgh for instance.

With respect, Pendragon, I suggest that YOU read up on these things, as I have a strong suspicion from the errors in your information that I know them better than you do.

Arthur could have come from anywhere in Brtian, Wales, Scotland or Cornwall they all have their legends. I was being a bit stereotypical in assuming he came from the South, I'll admit. I've never been that into Celtic history I prefer Germanic. Just because I overlooked a few things on socmething I not that into does not make me a bad scholar OK.

Kets just say Arthur was not king of England and Americans could not speak with him. He probably didn't exist anyway. Read Bernard Cornwell's Arthurian trilogy.
