island race在古英國文化方面是什麼意思?

在書上看到一句話,這裡的island race指的是什麼意思?其中的race指的是種族還是比賽?有什麼典故嗎?

....and for Britons, the story of the ‘island race’ locked into the mysterious past of Arthurian legends and Camelot on a ‘sceptr’d isle’.

Update:

我也在猜是種族的意思,想要確認一下,謝謝~

    race在這邊是指種族

    island race 海島民族

    ....and for Britons, the story of the ‘island race’ locked into the mysterious past of Arthurian legends and Camelot on a ‘sceptr’d isle’.

    對不列顛人來說, 海島民族的故事侷限在亞瑟王傳說神秘的過去,以及位在 ‘sceptr’d isle’的亞瑟王宮殿(Camelot).

    ‘sceptr’d isle’ 是亞瑟王傳說裡面的某個地方

    Camelot則是亞瑟王住的宮殿的名稱
