Early life

Breeze was educated at Sir Roger Manwood's School, the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge. He is married with six children.

Work

Besides numerous research papers on philology, he is the author of Medieval Welsh Literature (Dublin, 1997) and The Origins of the "Four Branches of the Mabinogi" (Leominster, 2009). He is also co-author with Professor Richard Coates of Celtic Voices, English Places (Stamford, 2000).

In 2015, he published a paper identifying the locations of King Arthur's battles from the 9th-century Historia Brittonum, placing them all in Scotland and Northern England. Based on these identifications, he suggested that Arthur was a Briton from the Kingdom of Strathclyde who fought other Britons, rather than Anglo-Saxons. Other scholars have questioned his methods, which they believe are based on superficial resemblances between place names.
