Default Arthur

I'm reading this book King Arthur by the writer M K Hume I know there has been many books written ,,but this one is without the Fantsy factor
It is written when the Romans pulled out of Briton makes it very real
just as you would think what went on then in that time ,I'm enjoying the read very much

I have bought a lot of fantasy and historical-fantasy novels that involve King Arthur. If you like that genre I've got some nice titles for you, Bats.

I don't know the author you mention, I suppose he's a newer one.

Yes Hans I would love to see what you have on Arthur,,I finished the book and the writer put why and how he wrote this book ,,when they dug up this Grave it had
Herel lies Arthur King of the Britons
And Guinevere his Second Wife
He also had Arthur as Artor it was interisting how he wrote about the Sword
I really think he was true as it's the old story first it became a Legend the
a Myth with this book he took away the myth and did how he thought how
the legend came about
Try it very good read

Some of my Arthurian novels I've now put up for free in our Book Collectors marketplace (well, against postage).

There's even some non-fiction stuff by Geoffrey Ashe.

I've been a devotee of Arthurian Legend since childhood, when I was weaned on T.H. White's Once and Future King. Amazing book, if a bit heavy for a kid. At the time I just enjoyed the challenge and ignored the bits that didn't make sense (e.g. all the romance, etc.). Guinevere doesn't encourage empathy in the very young...

Does Guinevere encourage empathy in anybody of any age?
