In this episode, we are joined by Professor and Author Nicholas Higham to continue our discussion about Britain's 5th century.
We begin to dive into the legend of Arthur, his historicity and how legendary figures can be distorted into factual, historical ones as time passes, even into the 20th century. As well as that, we take a look into Gildas's writings and hear another view on how his work should be interpreted, and much more.
