A Brief History of King Arthur (Brief History Of...)

A Brief History of King Arthur (Brief History Of...) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who was the real King Arthur? What do the historical documents tell us about the knight of the Round Table? Is it just a chivalric fantasy? Mike Ashley revisits the source material and uncovers unexpected new insights into the legend. There is clear evidence that the Arthurian legends arose from the exploits of not just one man, but at least three originating in Wales, Scotland, and Brittany. The true historical Arthur really existed and is distantly related to the present royal family in England.

Synopsis:

This is a revised version of the first half of the book The mammoth book of King Arthur, published in London by Robinson in 2005.

About the Author

Mike Ashley is the author of the best-selling A Brief History of British Kings and Queens and has been fascinated by the story of King Arthur for decades. He lives in Chatham, Britain.
