These ancient tales have been told since the fifth century, when Welsh bards traveled the countryside, entertaining lords and ladies with stories and songs. Those exciting tales were retold in verse by Chretien de Troyes in his twelfth-century Le morte d’Arthur and in prose by Sir Thomas Malory during the fifteenth century.
The book includes a selection of these enthralling legends, skillfully retold by renowned storyteller Isabel Wyatt.
Legends of King Arthur was previously published by Lanthorn Press as Tales the Harper Sang: Medieval Stories.
