ARTHUR AND THE KINGS OF BRITAIN: The Historical Truth Behind the Myths
The Historia Regum Britanniae written in 1136 by Geoffrey of Monmouth, has long been dismissed as an unreliable piece of medieval propaganda. A new examination of the text, however, shows that it's much more than that. Geoffrey created a national epic, and in doing so, created King Arthur, a composite character whose real origins are explained here. 16 pages of illustrations, some color.
