Camlann is the site of King Arthur's last battle against his nephew (or son) Mordred, said to have taken place in 539 AD. The location is disputed, but is most likely somewhere in Cornwall, the south-west tip of England, because after the battle many of the soldiers fled to Lyonesse, a land to the west of Cornwall that sank into the sea shortly afterwards.
