Land of the Gods is the story of the ancient inhabitants of the Lothians and the Borders, whose accomplishments are visible in Cairnpapple, Traprain Law and other ancient monuments. They accentuated the region's unique volcanic landscape to make it reflect their mythology, which spoke of gods descending from Earth and the local ruler being a representative of the sun god - Loth.

Throughout history, the land remained special: the Romans did not conquer the Gododdin, as they called the inhabitants. And when the Romans were retreating from Britain and for the first time, neighbouring tribes tried to lay claim to the land, a magnificent warrior appeared, who would fight for the survival of his land. He was remembered as Arthur and his Camelot was the Lothians and Borders region.

Unfortunately, after his reign, the region was overrun and his tribe, the Gododdin, fled to Wales, where they would speak of their magical kingdom and the mythical hero... The legend of Arthur was born... but the history of Camelot forgotten.
