I note I made the fifth last entry and that was five years ago. 'Today's messages' on the website is,perhaps, a little optimistic. However, I am opimistic too and so I write to say I have written a book Finding Merlin, Mainstream, Edinburgh, Pub. Aug. 2007. The first reference to Merlin has him fighting at the Battle of Arderydd 573CE. He lived for the last 20 years of his life at a place that even today is called Ardery. Using our name I have set Merlin in his correct time and place - 6th c. Scotland.
