Worlds of Arthur

Facts and Fictions of the Dark Ages

Guy Halsall

  • The story of King Arthur--and what we can ever know about him
  • Shows how all previous books on the 'real Arthur' can safely be ignored
  • Looks at all the 'worlds' of Arthur: the 'historical', the mythical, the fantastical--and the actual
  • Shows how the 'historical' Arthur is in many ways as dubious a figure as the 'red herrings' of the pseudo-historical fantasies
  • Reveals a truth about Arthur and his times both radically different and a good deal more intriguing than past accounts
