The following is a list and assessment of sites and places associated with King Arthur and the Arthurian legend in general. Given the lack of concrete historical knowledge about one of the most potent figures in British mythology, it is unlikely that any definitive conclusions about the claims for these places will ever be established; nevertheless it is both interesting and important to try to evaluate the body of evidence which does exist and examine it critically.

Arthurian legend, the body of stories and medieval romances, known as the matter of Britain, centring on the legendary king Arthur. Medieval writers, especially the French, variously treated stories of Arthur’s birth, the adventures of his knights, and the adulterous love between his knight Sir Lancelot and his queen, Guinevere. Using Celtic sources, Chrétien de Troyes in the late 12th century made Arthur the ruler of a realm of marvels in five romances of adventure. He also introduced the themes of the Grail and the love of Lancelot and Guinevere into Arthurian legend. Prose romances of the 13th century explored these major themes further.

Countless myths and legends surround King Arthur with many believing he had roots in Scotland’s history. Here are 10 places to discover Arthur's Scotland. 2. ‘The Round Table’, Stirling.

In the sea off Scotland’s west coast lies the Isle of Iona, where dozens of Scottish and other kings are buried. Iona is best known for the Christian Saint Columba and its abbey, but long before Columba arrived, Iona was known as the burial place of the Mac Aedan family, including Arthur.

His court at Camelot was a.Mr. Limke and Mr. Yeates continue the fine work on retelling the Arthurian Legends they began in their previous book in the series, "King Arthur: Excalibur Unsheathed. His court at Camelot was a wondrous place. It had taken much work and much time, but England was now at peace. However, that peace did not extend into Camelot itself. Limke's story seems to flow better in this volume than the earlier book, even though the tale of these legendary characters still seems to fly by when one reads it.

The origins of the King Arthur legend in Britain. Not in the sense of the wonderful medieval romances popularized by Thomas Malory. In all likelihood there was no Round Table or Sword in the Stone.

The origins of the King Arthur legend in Britain. What there was instead was a very brave warrior, who may not even have been named Arthur, leading the remnants of romanised British resistance against a steady onslaught of foreign pagan invaders.

This book is the most important distillation and interpretation of the Arthurian legends within the context of placing the roots of the stories. I have read a great deal of the relevant literature on the subject, from the angry screed of St. Gildas in the 6th century, up through and past Nikolai Tolstoy's brilliant plunge into the roots of the parallel Merlin myth. His siting of the roots of the Arthur legend in southeast Scotland rings true when the earliest roots of the stories are considered, not the fanciful extensions made by authors of later romances. Two things will hurt this book: 1) The stupid cover, which has little to do with the content.

In the first novel, Knight Life, Arthur emerges from his thousand-year convalescence that followed the wound he sustained from Mordred to run for mayor of New York City. Parke Godwin: Firelord and Beloved Exile. Rosalind Miles: Guenevere Trilogy is a fictional trilogy that follows Guenevere and King Arthur through their reign as High King and Queen.
