Prose: non-fiction, British & Irish history, Early history: c 500 to c 1450/1500

Revelatory account of the man and the legend

Mike Ashley visits 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.
