Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 230 The Polychronicon Of Merlin, Joseph & Arthur with Mark Olly

Spread the love
Imagine the most popular heroic story ever written, one which spans three millennia & goes to the very heart of the largest religion in the world, but which has now almost entirely devolved into myth. Ignored & avoided by the establishment, shunned & unexplored by archaeologists & historians, consigned to the back-rooms of academic study, yet everyone knows the characters & the plot – the tales of King Arthur & his Knights Of The Round Table.

But no-one knows the reality! Or do they? In Mark Olly’s latest book, The Polychronicon he unpicks the confusion to reveal the reality of Arthur to prove there is always a kernel of truth in most legends.
