Excellent & Eye Opening,
This review is from: The King Arthur Conspiracy: Arthur, America, and the Comet (Paperback)
Wilson, Blackett and Berkley knock down the myths associated with King Arthur and set up facts as serious and substantial as the famous blue stones of Wales. Along the way they present startling revelations that really do make sense of the fantastic stories told about Arthur. The Wasteland stories: an outgrowth of a real cometary disaster. Arthur being mortally wounded at Camlann: no, how about Arthur being killed in America by Native Americans, and his body brought back to Wales for burial. The prophecies of Merlin: no prophecies, just veiled (to the present day because of language and ignorance) retellings of events that actually happened.
Wilson and Blackett's thirty-year devotion to the history of the ancient Britons is an astounding story of perseverance and courage, the fruit of which is this incredible discovery and insight that will change the history books, if only the academic establishment will allow it.
Yes, the book would benefit from an index and a bibliography, but these are amendations that can occur in future editions. The scholarship evidenced here is first rate. This book will not disappoint, and quite possibly may blow your mind. Excellent! Excellent! Excellent!
