4.0 out of 5 stars A good multi-disciplinary survey, 30 Mar 2003
The book begins with the Arthurian legend, and goes on in various chapters to examine "the Arthurian fact". The authors certainly rate it as most probable that a Briton named Arthur existed and was important in the Dark Age military history of Britain. One thing that is brought home is the paucity of detail about the times. Whereas events in the late Roman Mediterranean can often be dated to the day, in sixth century Britain it appears to be a problem guessing the nearest decade. However, all is as clear as can be made. Although this 1968 work is now somewhat dated, it remains a solid foundation for an understanding of the material and intellectual culture of sub-Roman Britain, and how these histotical facts subsequently tie up with a British and European myth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous book.., 13 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A truly brilliant book, as are others in this series. I enjoy the Authors approach to his writing and research and the fact that he leaves it up to the reader to decide what did happen century's ago. I admire all that he has done!

Recommend the seller as the book was as described and has many years of reading left to it..hopefully!
