King Arthur: The Truth Behind the Legend
by Rodney Castleden
Book Description King Arthur lives! Who was he? How much of his life is based on historical fact? Where was his Kingdom? 

In his quest for the real King Arthur, Rodney Castelden reconstructs the kingdoms, frontiers and political centers of sixth century Britain, and recreates the royal dynasties and chronologies of the Dark Age kings. 

King Arthur is often written off as medieval fantasy, the dream of those yearning for an age of strong, just rulers and a contented kingdom. Those who accept his existence at all generally discard the stories that surround him. This exciting new investigation argues not only that Arthur did exist, as a Dark Age Chieftain, but that many of the romantic tales - of Merlin, Camelot, and Excalibur - are rooted in truth. 

In this investigation Rodney Castelden uses up-to-date archaeological and documentary evidence to recreate the history and society of Dark Age Britain and its kings. He revives the possibility that Tintagel was an Arthurian residence, and proposes a radical new theory - that Arthur escaped alive from his final battle. A location is even suggested for perhaps the greatest mystery, the location of Arthur's grave.

Looking for Arthur: A Once and Future Travelogue
by Richard Leviton
Book Description Fictional "spiritual autobiography," Arthurian fantasy, and compendium of instruction in mystical and magical practices, Looking For Arthur presents in a contemporary setting ("magical realism") the entire scope of materials surrounding the legend of King Arthur. By turns reverent and impious, earnest and witty, metaphysical and lighthearted, the book is set in present-day Glastonbury amidst a hub-bub of occultists, mystics, and tourists swarming about the ruins of this ancient site of Arthurian...

The Real King Arthur: A History of Post-Roman Britannia A.D. 410-A.D. 593 (2 Vol.Set)
by P. F. Turner
The REAL King Arthur cites and analyzes the ancient sources behind each event of Arthur's career, reconstructing the life and times of the historical person behind the legends. Spanning the period from the decline of the Roman Empire to the rise of Saxon England, The REAL King Arthur provides provides an unusually substantial account of a period of British history that has been obscured by the very legends that its events inspired. At the same time, the book reads much like a detective story, as the reader joins the author in re-creating the times, places and events from the evidence at hand. 

It is seldom that one meets with a major new historical insight presented in logical and literate form and verified by credible research. Such, however, is the monumental The REAL King Arthur. It is far more than just a narrative of Arthur's life and antecedents; it is a carefully crafted history of the two centuries of post-Roman Britannia, a period much neglected in the prevailing school texts.
