    This is a somewhat dated but sensible account of the evolution of the Arthurian Legend in the Middle Ages. The book presents key facts in the evolution of the legend from chronicles, Welsh poetry and later romances. There's also chapters on the historicity of Arthur and a chapter on the mythological elements connected with the legends, a subject that was much in vogue at the time of publication. The only drawback to the book is in the final chapter, which collects the chronicle records, is that This is a somewhat dated but sensible account of the evolution of the Arthurian Legend in the Middle Ages.

The only drawback to the book is in the final chapter, which collects the chronicle records, is that Chambers doesn't give an english translation of these Latin texts. Apart from that, the book is worth a read.

    Old book but enjoyed . A very detailed and interesting description of the myth behind king Arthur and his historical evolution. The Latin texts at the end are a great bonus :D
