1 days

From $175

Activity Level:

Summary

Arthur and Alfred are two of Britain's most iconic kings. They share many things in common: both are seen as saviors and unifiers of the nation, both have a reputation for piety, and both have no known grave... Curiously while the semi-mythical Arthur's fame has risen to sharply. We shall explore why this has happened, how the myths surrounding the two grew up and how they have intertwined and influenced each other over the ages. There is no better place to do this than Winchester, Alfred's capital and according to Thomas Malory, Arthur's Camelot, and still possessor of a "round table".
