LOCATION MAP of Camelot in 533 AD.
Henry's adventure begins at his home in modern-day Sherborne, Dorset, the historic former capital of the West Saxon kingdom of Wessex.
Knight for a Day suggests this might have been Camlann, the unknown place near Glastonbury Abbey where King Arthur fought his last battle. It is only six miles south of Cadbury Castle, long recognised as the most likely location of Camelot.
Twelve miles further north, across the Roman Fosse Way, is Glastonbury Tor, topped by a neolithic stone circle of the sun and where King Arthur is believed to have been buried. It has been a sacred place of magic and worship since long before recorded history and overlooks the Isle of Avalon, the mysterious Celtic Land of the Dead.
