About this title


A celebration in words and pictures of the world of King Arthur. All the romance of Camelot in this glorious book, where legend, fact and conjecture blend together in a text that sparkles with colour and wit. It's theme is how the Arthurian legend fascinated and inspired all Europe in the middle Ages. Kevin Crossley Holland writes of Knights and ladies, tournaments and troubadours, castles and quests and the rituals of courtly love. He is entertainingly informative about small boys training to be knights, how difficult it was to put armour on, how you ate and dressed and chose gifts for your lady. And he introduces us to the great characters of the Arthurian world, such as Lancelot and Guinevere, Merlin, Morgan le Fay and of course, the mysterious King Arthur himself.
