About Britain AD - King Arthur's Britain
Sheep-farming archaeologist, Francis Pryor, presents a brand new historical series, which explores Britain A.D, the British national character and the ultimate British icon King Arthur. Finding new and previously unexplained evidence, Francis Pryor overturns the idea that Britain reverted to a state of anarchy and disorder after the Romans left in 410 AD. Instead of doom and gloom Francis discovers a continuous culture that assimilated influences from as far a field as the Middle East and Constantinople. By scrutinising the myth of King Arthur to find out what was really going on when the Romans left, Francis is confronted by evidence that confounds traditional views of the 'Dark ages'. Nor was there an invasion of bloodthirsty Anglo Saxons, rampaging across the countryside. With new archaeological evidence Francis discovers a far more interesting story. Episode 1: King Arthur's BritainIn the first programme of the series he tells the story of Roman Britain from the perspective of the native Britons rather than the conquering army and reveals that the invasion was not a brutal suppression of indigenous culture but a mutually beneficial experience which the Britons may have actually instigated.
