By David Carroll
The secret surrounding the legend of King Arthur has eventually been solved and the query "did he quite exist?" answered.
'Arturius - A Quest for Camelot', is the results of six years' learn, and the e-book explains and proves past average doubt the truth and id of King Arthur.
Using formerly ignored proof from the seventh and eighth centuries advert, writer D. F. Carroll believes he has succeeded in ultimately fixing the mystery.
Most importantly, the e-book is predicated on ancient facts. The identify Arthur in its sixth Century advert shape is Artur, and because the clergymen who recorded the earliest heritage wrote in Latin, they recorded the identify as Arturius.
Any files the place the identify Arthur is spelled with an 'h' are not going to have originated from sooner than the twelfth Century advert, and are for this reason unreliable as facts of sixth Century history.
A universal criticism by way of readers of books as regards to King Arthur, is that irrespective of how lengthy the publication, or how filled with details it can be, on the finish, the reader continues to be left asking the query, "but who was once Arthur?"
The explanation for this can be that almost all writers as regards to King Arthur cram their books choked with info, derived generally from legends, myths, and poems that are traditionally of no worth, and have the ability to create the appearance of getting defined to you who Arthur particularly was once, the place actually you continue to don't know the reply to the query, "but who used to be Arthur?"
In this publication, i've got used no legends or poems or myths, or the unreliable 'Annals of Wales'. in its place i've got used the extra trustworthy 'Annals of Ulster' and 'Annals of Tigernach', including Adomnan's 'Life of Columba'.
The publication is predicated now not on legends, yet relatively the simplest to be had old evidence.
Therefore, on the finish of this booklet, you won't be left to ask yourself "who quite used to be Arthur?", simply because this ebook will offer a transparent and unequivocal resolution to that question.
