King Arthur, Caerleon and Camelot The place name 'Camelot' does not occur in early versions of the story of Arthur. However, Geoffrey of Monmouth (1133AD) tells how Arthur held court at 'The City Of The Legions' and leaves us in little doubt that this was Caerleon. Certainly Caerleon would have been a most impressive location for Arthur to hold court for important rulers, with its splendid roman remains. Equally, we can be sure that only a professional army could defend the Roman fortress ruins. If Caerleon was more than just a meeting place for Arthur we must look to the surrounding hill tops for the location of his 'castle'. Sure enough such a site exists less than a mile North of the village - a fortification known as 'Belinstocke'.

Tired of Teaching “Elements of Plot”? A New, Fun Approach! Are you tired of beginning each school year with the same ol’ “Elements of Plot” lesson?
