A lifetime's scholarship enabled John Morris to recreate a past hitherto hidden in myth and mystery. He describes the Arthurian Age as 'the starting point of future British history', for it saw the transition from Roman Britain to Great Britain, the establishment of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales from the collapse of the Pax Romana. In exploring political, social, economic, religious and cultural history from the fourth to the seventh century, his theme is one of continuity. That continuity is embodied in Arthur himself: 'in name he was the last Roman Emperor, but he ruled as the first medieval king.'… (más)

    King Arthur: The Truth Behind the Legend por Rodney Castleden (ed.pendragon)
    ed.pendragon: A work about the so-called Arthurian Age that stimulates and infuriates in equal degree, using evidence of varied worth from a great many disciplines -- history, archaeology, literature, folklore and placename studies, to name a few -- to create a flawed unified theory of an historical period and particularly the figure that supposedly lent his name to it.… (más)

Interesante obra sobre cómo eran las islas británicas en la época en que las leyendas sitúan al rey Arturo. Efectos de la retirada de las islas británicas por parte de los romanos, qué supone la era artúrica para la formación posterior de Gran Bretaña, panorama social, político, religioso, cultural... y qué hay de verdad en las leyendas artúricas. ( )

Dr. Morris, however, has not only surveyed the whole period and the whole of the British Isles across these three centuries, but has injected into every fibre of his book his own individualistic views and uncompromising conclusions. He writes with nothing if not zest and character and there will probably be few who have not learnt something from him at some time, if only as a reaction to one of his pronouncements. Unfortunately, the authoritative tone of this volume conceals not a lack of knowledge as such but a seemingly total inability to construct a thesis which unfolds logically and by appropriate stages, together with an indifference to the views and conclusions of other scholars bordering on the absolute. It is a matter of deep regret that such an outwardly impressive piece of scholarship as The Age of Arthur should crumble upon inspection into a tangled tissue of fact and fantasy which is both misleading and misguided. It is also a matter of grave concern that this book is likely to be read widely and its conclusions disseminated at all levels. No scholarly satisfaction is to be derived from commenting unfavourably and at length on the labour of love of another historian, but this massive edifice needs so thoroughly dismantling that it is essential to treat, at least in passing, as many as possible (for even a more extended critique cannot cover every defective statement) of the errors and misconceptions with which it abounds.
