Editor says, 1) Now the alternatives, there always seem to be two possible sites in all the Arthur accounts - the other site for Camlamm is down in a valley in Mid-Wales which my history tutor visited. If the Cunnedda were Celtic foederati from Lothian, this makes them Artorius' relatives via Anna's mother and expains Gildas' references. They are in Gwyneth and become that kingdom. So a battle site in that area makes sense.
2) Cirinium was the 3rd largest Roman city in Britain, and wait for it, wait for it, the capital of Constantine's second son when the Empire was divided under various sons as Emperors.
