The sources listing Arthur's battles confirm he was in Scotland fighting the Picts. I think the most compelling argument for his origins was that he was a Romano-British chieftan of the Goddodin-the tribe that controlled the Lothians during the dark ages. When the Romans left they were the only Britons with experience of war (against the Picts) and some historians have tentatively suggested that the Roman fort of Camelon,was the site of Camelot. I think the language that evolved into Welsh appeared in Wales with the first Brythonic settlers who arrived during the Bronze Age several centuries before the Romans arrived.
