The legend of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table dominates the mythology of Britain, but could this story prove more fact than fiction? Recent archaeological findings have lead Geoffrey Ashe to believe there is more truth to Arthurian legend than previously accepted. The Quest for Arthur's Britain examines the historical foundation of the Arthurian tradition, and presents the remarkable results of excavations to date at Cadbury (reputed site of Camelot), Tintagel, Glastonbury and many places known almost exclusively to Arthurian scholars

"Geoffrey Ashe's lavishly illustrated Mythology of the British Isles retells the legendary history of Britain and uncovers a national mythology which is comparable to that of the Greeks in its richness and cohesiveness. Recounting stories and legends from the dark centuries of British prehistory to the ninth century AD - tales of giants and fairies, druids and saints, King Lear, King Arthur and Old King Cole - he shows how they all interrelate and take on fresh significance from historical and archaeological research"--Back cover

An Arthurian dictionary by Charles Moorman( Book )

5 editions published between 1978 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended as a reference manual for students, this dictionary lists the characters, places, and topics connected with the legend of King Arthur from its first written appearances through Sir Thomas Malory's "Le Morte d'Arthur." The entries are generally limited to Celtic, French, German, and English materials and include characters and places that appear in more than one work or are important to the legend. However, the dictionary does provide a key to some of the less eminent figures and locations in the Arthurian legends. The introduction offers a sketch of the development of the Arthur story, and the bibliography lists the general commentaries, all of which are standard authorities, that served as the major sources for this volume.
