Then Arthur Fought (colour pdf) By Howard Wiseman
eBook (PDF): $4.05
The historical Arthur, if he existed, was a battle-leader of the dark-age (5th-6th century) Britons against the invading Anglo-Saxons. In the Middle Ages, he was a figure of legend, pseudohistory... More > (false history), and romance, and in modern times the hero of countless novels. ‘Then Arthur Fought’ is something new: a quasi-history (as-if-it-were history) of Arthur – a plausible chronicle compatible with known history. Drawing upon hundreds of medieval texts, and his own inventions, Wiseman has forged a unique conception of Arthur and his times. It spans close to 300 years (from the decline of Roman Britain to the English conquest of the Britons’ last lowland territories), and much of Europe – the fortunes of war take Arthur or his compatriots to Gaul, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Byzantium. 'Then Arthur Fought' is carefully annotated and hyperlinked, and is illustrated by 20 colour maps. It will appeal to anyone interested in dark-age history and legends, or in new frameworks for Arthurian fiction.< Less
