The Patrick with which we are so familiar is in many ways the creation of myth, legend and tradition. As R.P.C Hanson observed:

‘all the exciting and glamorous features that tradition has added to Patrick must be removed if we wish to know what he was really like. And yet the historical Patrick is more interesting and more worth studying than all these gaudy later traditions…’

Let us strip away all these later accretions and discover the man whom Professor Hugh Kearney has accurately described as 'the first clearly recognisable individual personality in British history'.
