Tales of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table have been captivating the imaginations of readers with stirring tales of chivalry, valor, and romance for centuries. But the remarkable number of references in classic Arthurian works to actual locations in Britain have led even historians and archaeologists to question the distance between fact and fiction. This tour transports us through the beautiful southwestern corner of the British Isles to explore some of the most notable sites of Arthurian lore and investigate their historical and literary connections. As we immerse ourselves in the evocative atmospheres of South Wales, Cornwall, and Somerset, together we ponder questions that have enthralled readers for ages. Could there have been a King Arthur? Did Camelot exist? Was there an Excalibur? Join us on this fascinating journey and you may find yourself closer to answering those questions than you ever imagined.
