paintings of William Morris and Edward Burn Jones.

Jones, Bedwyr Lewis, Arthur Y Cymry, The Welsh Arthur (University of
Wales Press, Cardiff, 1975). It discusses in great detail exactly what
information we have about Arthur, and -- more importantly -- considers
what kind of conclusions can be drawn about the real origins of these

earlier version.

Radical Reassessment of the Legends of King Arthur, the Knights of the
Round Table, and the Holy Grail (Garland Publishing, Inc., New York &
London, 1994). From Dr. Malcor "In this book my co-author and I argue
that the core of the Arthurian and Holy Grail traditions do not derive
from Celtic folklore and mythology, but rather from the folklore and
mythology of the Alans and the Sarmatians, Northeast-Iranian speaking
steppe nomads who invaded Europe in the final days of the Roman
Empire. Although this book contains a complete scholarly apparatus, we
have written it primarily to be enjoyed by the intelligent lay reader
who wants to spend a few evenings taking a new look at the origins of
Arthurian tradition."
