Summary
This Lecture: First, consider images of the Arthurian legend familiar in Western culture, and their relationship to historical reality. Trace the history of post-Roman Britain, the large-scale invasions of the Anglo-Saxons, and evidence that a single, extraordinary individual rose from the chaos to lead and save his people. The Course: The saga of King Arthur and his court is the most enduringly popular mythic tradition of Western civilization.
