Abstract:

Although the Arthurian myth likely originated in Britain's post-Roman era, medieval author Geoffrey of Monmouth fashioned an Arthur for his own time-and engendered a chivalric fantasy that persists to this day. Does evidence of a flesh-and-blood 5th-century leader hide beneath the calcified layers of Arthurian romance? This program searches for answers by examining historical records and following extensive field research at several British locations. A vast Anglo-Saxon graveyard, pottery shards at Tintagel, an ancient hillfort in Somerset, and the flood plain surrounding Glastonbury Tor create a compelling portrait of the Britonic Arthur, enhanced by digital architectural reconstructions. Intriguing theories involving Excalibur are also featured.
