King Arthurs Avalon - The Story of Glastonbury Collins
Academy Chicago 1994 Pages: 238
Price: $11.16
ISBN: 0897332873
Midwest Book Review : Most scholars now regard the legendary Arthur's reality as probable and accept "Arthurian Britain" as a meaningful historical term. Solid facts have emerged through the recent work of archaeologists. The Quest For Arthur's Britain examines the historical foundations of the Arthurian tradition, and then, in five archaeological chapters, presents the results of excavations to date at Cadbury (reputed site of Camelot), Tintagel, Glastonbury, and less-known places. An outline of Arthurian Britain takes shape, and several fascinating questions emerge. Were the Dark Ages in Britain a transitory, unimportant period? Or did the Celtic resistance against the Anglo-Saxons (a resistance identified with Arthur) have a profound effect on the development of the British Isles? The Quest For Arthur's Britain is a serious and informative work of scholarship that reads as smoothly as the finest fiction.

ISBN: 0819198609
A READER: The author makes a wondeful effort of compiling knowledge and research from many fields - archaelogy, anthropology, linguistics, mythology - to name a few. An excellent introduction to Indo-European culture and language both for the formal Indo-Europeanist, and for someone new to this area of study. The style is clear, and many good examples are given to explain the various themes. I highly recommend this book to anyone, even those who are not formal linguists or Indo-Europeanists.
