The difficulty with White and Barker’s proposal is that there is virtually no material culture at Wroxeter to associate with this fifth-, sixth-, and early seventh-century urbanism unless of course fourth-century artifacts were still in use in successive centuries. g. Gelling 1992: 23; Ward-Perkins 1996: 9–10).

The author of the Annales found in the Historia Brittonum a depiction of Britain post-Vortigern enjoying a “golden age” characterized by the extraordinary achievements of Patrick followed by the God-given victories of the heroic Arthur; but glorification of the deeds of Cunedda in that work (Historia Brittonum chs 14, 62), who evicted the Irish from Wales, defined this “golden age” in narrowly “British” terms.
