King Arthur: The True Story
The truth behind the romance and legends of Excalibur, the Holy Grail and the site of the real Avalon.
For fifteen hundred years, King Arthur has remained a mystery. For the first time, King Arthur – The True Story discovers the historical King Arthur, his Camelot and his final resting place. The authors uncover vital evidence for Arthur’s historical existence. Centuries of myth are peeled away to reveal the truth behind the romance, and the Grail and Excalibur legends. The search for Arthur’s Camelot leads to ancient ruins in the heart of Britain – a Dark Age city recently unearthed by archaeologists. A medieval manuscript in Oxford’s Bodleian Library finally identifies King Arthur’s burial site: the real Avalon.
