One of the earliest recorded histories of Britain; Nennius wrote the book around 796BC. These days Nennius is recognised as being a teller, and embellisher, of historic characters and events; but his book is notable as one of the earliest that mention Arthur (of Arthurian legend).

The book is fascinating, but the description is wrong; this book was written ca. 800AD, not 800BC. I'm fairly certain Christianity wasn't popular in Britain in 800BC.
