I have read with some interest your contributions associated with the Arthurian legends. Your knowledge would seem to be to be quite extensive. Indeed, if one reads your entries carefully, it is clear that you must have access to sources not available to the rest of mankind. In truth, I think you may have a great future as an author of historical fiction.--British_cons (talk) 12:57, 24 March 2007 (EDT)

Most of the stuff comes from The Mammoth Book of King Arthur by Mike Ashley. Dorpfeld 13:05, 24 March 2007 (EDT)
Really? I had no idea that, for example, a druid's training was no hard, or that a female Druid had the same name as a Greek tree spirit. That was shocking stuff about the temple prostitutes and incest as well. No doubt you're going to be referencing it all later?--British_cons (talk) 13:11, 24 March 2007 (EDT)
The Druid stuff is not to be confused with the Arthurian stuff. Most of the Druid stuff comes from Secrets of Lost Atland by Robert Scrutton. The 'Dryad' term has been adopted by modern Druidic organisations for female Druids. And Mordred was most certainly believed to have been the product of an incestuous relationship, this is quite a prominent motif in the tales. Dorpfeld 13:15, 24 March 2007 (EDT)
Then I shall say no more and simply watch. :-)--British_cons (talk) 13:22, 24 March 2007 (EDT)
