This thorough investigation into the "historical" sources for King Arthur was fascinating, mostly because of the kind of detective work needed to interpret and date the sources. I thought when I found it in the library that I'd just skim a bit, but I became thoroughly engrossed. The conclusion, that if there was a historic Arthur, he is not connected to the legends that grew up around his name, is now widely held. ( )
