Faking King Arthur in the Middle Ages

Lecture by Richard Barber, FSA

Tuesday, 21 March 2017

When Caxton published Sir Thomas Malory’s Morte Darthur, he listed in his preface a number of relics which in his view showed that Arthur was real. Richard Barber looks at these and other supposed objects from Arthur’s court, suggests sources for them, and places them in the context of the British passion for the Arthurian legend.
