The Arthurian Legend. '0{ In his interetlug articles on "The Arthurian Legend in the current iseue (.f the Genintn, the Welsh quarterly Mr Lleufer Thomas, B.A., the secretary of the Welsh Land Commission, examines critically the legend, and shows how it grew from small beginnings. Two views of Aithur are enter- tained. One class maintains that Arthur was a real historical personage and that the romances) which cluster around his name were built upon his exploits, and in natural order, are developments of historical facts in his life Another class strenuously agree that the romances are attegether legendary. With the exception of Professor Rhys, all who have studied the question hold the former view some of them main- taining that Arthur was a North British King. Whitaker places his kindom in Cumberland, West- moreland, and Lancashire. Skene locates it higher up in Scotland ;and Mr Stuart Glennie advocates the claims of Edinburgh and the surrounding country. On the other hand, Merionethshire patriots plant him at Llanuwchllyn, at the foot of the,. Aran near the source of the Dee. But the majority of who be- lieve ia his existence give him a local habitation in the south of our island.
