THE MATTER OF BRITAIN

A collection of materiel from primary sources telling the early history of Britain.

Forward

I intended collecting all primary written sources together in date order. This would give a clear narrative of events in Roman and Dark Age Britain. Of course, I failed.

There are no real primary sources. For centuries everything was re-copied, translated, and glossed over.

Then there were my subjective decisions on which versions to use. What religious discussion or Roman political intrigue would I leave out to save space?

I have put in the secondary source works of Sabine Baring-Gould, (SBG) because I could find little else. Worse, I have edited and cut his work to a more succinct length.

And what was Britain? I am part Scottish, English, Welsh and Irish. So I include Ireland, but many do not. Then what about Brittany? Northern Gaul? Germany? Surely events there affected Britain?

Thus my original clear narrative became a heap of odd facts in rough date order.

I invite you to make the best of it.

And many.many others.

I chose to leave out the Ravenna Cosmography and the Antonine Itineries since they are basically lists of place names and the distances between them rather than a record of events.

The British section of the Antonine itinery can be found at-

The Ravenna Cosmography can be found at several sites including-

and

With reluctance I have left out the wonderfull History of the Kings of Britain by Geoffery of Monmouth. Many people, much more learned than I, have condemned it as a work of fiction. And it would have added hundreds more pages to an already over long web site.

But his work is available at several sites includingt-
