Arthur's Britain; history and archaeology, AD 367-634 by Leslie Alcock( Book )

86 editions published between 1971 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We are all familiar with the heroic deeds and enchantments of the legendary tales surrounding King Arthur. But what evidence is there for a real figure beneath the myth and romance? Arthur's Britain assembles a wealth of information about the history of Arthur by delving into the shadowy period in which he lived. Drawing on evidence from written and archaeological sources, Leslie Alcock, who directed the famous excavation at Cadbury Castle in Somerset, England, sifts history from fiction to take us back to life between the fourth and seventh centuries. He also provides fascinating detail on how the Britons actually lived, worshipped, dressed, and fought to uncover the real world and people behind the Arthurian legends"--Publisher description

From the Baltic to the Black Sea : studies in medieval archaeology( Book )

12 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Baltic to the Black Sea offers a rare insight into the closed world of medieval Eastern Europe and opens up a neglected archaeological tradition to English-speaking readers. Selections focus on early European ethnic formations and states, the demography of medieval populations, and the nature of rural settlement and urban development. The book challenges the intellectual assumptions of medieval archaeology and questions its relationship to history and prehistory. It exposes the limitations of a strictly empirical approach to studying the period when written history began and the early medieval states emerged. -- Publishers description

The quest for Arthur's Britain by Geoffrey Ashe( Book )

7 editions published between 1968 and 1982 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
