Summary

What is it about King Arthur that still holds our attention 1,500 years after he first materialized from the murky depths of history and legend?

Boasting a host of teaching awards from the Princeton Review and Gettysburg College, Christopher R. Fee transports you through space and time in search of answers. In his insightful audio course, you will trace Arthur’s path across Britain: visiting such iconic sites as Tintagel, Glastonbury, and Stonehenge in search of physical reminders of this legendary king, his court, and a mighty stronghold remembered through the mists of time as “Camelot”. You will seek evidence for Arthur across both literary and literal landscapes, from ancient manuscripts to modern day archaeological excavations.

Through 24 energetic lectures, you will see how much Arthur has been recast and refashioned for succeeding generations of audiences - first in Wales, Cornwall, Brittany, and England, but later across the globe. Like the Knights of the Round Table on their epic quest for the Holy Grail, you will scour recorded history for the true face of the “Once and Future King”. You will conclude your search for King Arthur by considering the most popular of the countless books and movies dedicated to him, his court, and their adventures.

As you explore the unwavering interest in Arthur across centuries of popular culture, you will learn to look behind the façade of all things Arthurian - discerning the factual basis for the man, the myths, and the legends. This course includes a free PDF study guide prepared by your professor and course producer.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
