Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We are all familiar with the heroic deeds and enchantments of the legendary tales surrounding King Arthur. But what evidence is there for a real figure beneath the myth and romance?

Arthur's Britain assembles a wealth of information about the history of Arthur by delving into the shadowy period in which he lived. Drawing on evidence from written and archaeological sources, Leslie Alcock, who directed the famous excavation at Cadbury Castle in Somerset, England, sifts history from fiction to take us back to life between the fourth and seventh centuries. He also provides fascinating detail on how the Britons actually lived, worshipped, dressed, and fought to uncover the real world and people behind the Arthurian legends.

Synopsis:

In this text, Professor Alcock sifts history from myth to contruct a convincing picture of life between the fourth and seventh centuries, when Celtic Britain was abandoned by the legions to the Picts, Scots and Anglo-Saxons.

About the Author

Leslie Alcock is an honorary professional research fellow and former professor of archaeology at the University of Glasgow. He is a past president of the Cambrian Archaeology Association and the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.
