King Arthur came from Shropshire

Or so a spokesman for Shropshire Tourism told the Shropshire Star:
"If you think King Arthur’s home was the south west of England think again. Arthur’s spiritual home was Camelot - now known as Wroxeter Roman City near Shrewsbury.

“Guinevere was an Oswestry lass, being born at the Old Oswestry Hill Fort. The Holy Grail was actually found at Hawkstone Park, and Arthur’s final resting place is Baschurch.

“King Arthur’s crown jewels are believed to have been buried in Much Wenlock by Arthur’s heir Cynddylan and are still waiting to be discovered.”

Hmmm....Shropshire Tourism...no agenda there, then!

(I spent my childhood summers in Worcestershire and South Shropshire and share your love for the county)
