  • Written in 1136 by Geoffrey of Monmouth, the Historia Regum Britanniae History of the Kings of Britain purported to chronicle the British monarchy from the arrival of the Trojan Brutus, grandson of Aeneas, through to the seventh century AD when the Anglo Saxons had taken control of the land The Historia was a medieval bestseller, and copies spread across the whole of western Europe It went on to influence great works of art and literature, being the first to outline the story of King Arthur as well as laying the foundations for King Lear and Cymbeline, both later immortalised by Shakespeare.Although it claimed to be history, the Historia has long been dismissed as an unreliable piece of medieval propaganda and national mythmaking A new examination of the text, however, shows that it is very much than that In this ground breaking new book, Miles Russell explains how individual elements of the Historia can be traced back to the first century BC, a time when Britain was making first contact with Rome Geoffrey of Monmouth s skill was to weave these early traditions together with folklore and material culled from post Roman sources, in order to create a national epic In doing so, he also created King Arthur, a composite character whose real origins and context are explained here.This important new work establishes Geoffrey of Monmouth as no mere peddler of historical fiction, but as the man who preserved the earliest foundation myths of Britain It is time to re evaluate the Historia Regum Britanniae and shine a new light into the so called Dark Ages.

      Well researched and written. The author's arguments are thorough and compelling. I really think he has made a significant contribution to the solution of the "Arthur Mystery". However, it would have been more complete if he had read the work of Mike Baillie: "Exodus to Arthur: Catastrophic Encounters With Comets". There is far more about the destruction of Britain than Russell's line of thought can explain. Still, brilliantly done and much appreciated; highly recommended.

      (I read this as an e-book.) Russell is an archaeologist. I quite liked his earlier book "Bloodline", a somewhat revisionist history about the first 150 years of relations between Romans and Britons (c.50 BCE - 100 CE), based on the contemporary histories, and on archaeological finds. This book obviously grew out of his interest in that same period, but is far less satisfactory. The bulk of the book is a reëxamination of the 12th Century Historia Regum Britanniae (History of the Kings of Britain [...]
