It's a past hitherto hidden in myth and mystery, and one so exciting to lovers of literature and history. Yet Arthur himself, both the last Roman emperor and the first medieval king, represented a form of continuity...and pointed the way to future English history. "...Morris has created more than the most devoted of Arthurian enthusiasts could ever have hoped for...in a style of great elegance..."--Times Literary Supplement.

About the Author:

John Morris was the first professional historian to undertake a comprehensive assessment of the scattered evidence concerning the infant years of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland, their influence on each other and their relationship with Europe. The Age of Arthur is now the classic account of the British Isles from the fourth to the seventh centuries. Senior Lecturer in Ancient History at University College, London, the late Dr John Morris founded the journal Past and Present in 1952 and was its first editor. He initiated a major new edition of the Doomsday Book and, with A.H.M. Jones, the Prosopography of the Later Roman Empire. His last book, Londinium: London in the Roman Empire, was published in 1982.
