Merlin Was Real Person Who Lived in Scotland Claims New Research

 

Adam Ardrey claims Merlin was born near Hamilton in Lanarkshire in 540 and was a politician and scholar. After 6 years of research Ardrey believes Merlin is buried in Dunipace near Stirling. Merlin and his wife Gwendolin had a comfortable lifestyle.

Mr Ardrey found out the information after researching his family name "...my name Ardrey was connected with the very first reference to Merlin, which had him fighting at the Battle of Arddreyd."

"Then later and separately I found that in the last 20 years of his life Merlin lived at a place that even today is still called Ardery Street. Merlin lived where the king, his brother-in-law, lived in what was called the Royal Town of Partick."

  the person merlin  
 
was based off probably is real, dont forget back in those ages any science was considered magic. make a rudamentary grenade, with magnesium and a few other chemicals and you have a 'light flash' etc, commoners who could not even read would not have known it was not magic

Yikes! That's a bit of a stretching claim, don't you think? They were uneducated, not stupid. Big difference. It's not so much of a stretch to get them to understand that the reaction of one chemical to another causing an explosion was not very different from other chemical reactions they observed every day. Sure, they'de be resistant to the idea at first -- but it probably wouldn't take terribly long for people to realize that things like that weren't magic, even on their own.

Nuh-uh! People's primitive intellects back then wouldn't understand alloys and compositions and -- things with molecular structures. You could fire a shotgun and thell them that it was your boom-stick, and they'd all think you had special powers.

lol
thats so funny.
if the common people are so smart why do they believe there is a magical man in the sky who watches everything they do and is going to judge them when they die.

6th century England was the darkest of dark ages, the roman outposts fell centuries before and it is still centuries until the renaissance. it wouldn't be surprising if Merlin was the one of few that understood science.
