John Matthews | Lucius Artorius Castus Conference

29th March to 2nd April 2012


An international group of scholars gather to discuss, argue, and celebrate the life of Lucius Artorius Castus, the only figure with this name whose military activities in Britain can be traced and whose connections with the myths and legends of King Arthur are well established.

Confirmed speakers include Dr Linda Malcor (USA) Professor Emeritus Nicholas Higham (UK) Antonio Trinchese (Italy) and Professor Emeritus N Cambi (Croatia). The conference will include guided tours of local archaeological sites, and the site of Lucius Artorius Castus’ grave slab, which describes his phenomenal career. We will also visit the palace of the Emperor Diocletian. There will be a special showing of the 2004 film “King Arthur”, based on the life of Artorius’ descendent, introduced by its historical consultants, John Matthews and Linda Malcor.
