If you’re interested in Arthurian legend have a look at my website www.felicitypulman.com.au under ‘articles’ for this new article.  It traces written references to Arthur dating back through the centuries with this question in mind: was the legend based around a real warrior (or king, or dux bellorum) or is it merely a legend?  The fact that these references date back almost 1500 years says everything about how powerful and enduring this story is and how it still speaks to us: how a king with utopian ideals and the best of intentions is betrayed by those who love him and owe him loyalty, leading to the fall of Camelot and leaving the way open to the renewed invasion of Britain. A lesson for our times, maybe?
