Illustrated with B&W photographs, line drawings and maps. From the cover: “From the first recording of his name by the Celtic monk Nennius, the legend of Arthur has, over the years, been passed down and interpreted both on the Continent and in the English-speaking world. Few records survived the Dark ages of the sixth century A.D., facts which lingered on in memory were elaborated by Anglo- Saxon chroniclers, overlaid with the conventions of courtly romance during the Middle Ages and revived in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in opera, idyll and satire. With great perception the author wherever possible disentangles fact and folklore to give us a clearer view of one of the most fascinating and persistent heroes of our Western heritage.”
