Any kind of research that involves delving back into a past not exactly bulging with meticulous written references to historical events and people must be nothing short of arduous. Arthur - man, myth, legend, king - has possibly had more written about him than any other character in history.

Fantastic!
This appears to finally place into historically/geographically proper context the story of Arthur.
Well researched moving beyond classic English historical documents to older Welsh sources.

The authors have a second book that I have not yet acquired called Pendragon - a must find.
Highly recommended!

It's interesting to see the truth of Arthur and geography separated from the myth that's been created.

I would suggest this book to those interested in history, Arthur and something bordering on a text book. Unless, of course, they don't want to loose the veil of fantasy and romance that surrounds the characters.

I just can't get enough of King Arthur. The story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table have fascinated me since child hood and I just have to read them all.

A complicated read, but a fascinating one. Explains the many ways that the legends of King Arthur may have actually taken place in a small portion of Wales. Very colorful and factual.
