Episode 4 – We need to talk about Arthur

Why oh why I hear you cry. This podcast is supposed to be a history so what’s this legendary guy doing in it. Well, just like religion and magic stuff, our olde monarchs believed in Arthur. Ted 3 believed and wanted his guys to be just like Arthurs mates. Betty 1 even tried Ancestry.com to prove she was descended from Arthur. So we had a squiz at what we could get out of real history which turns out to be bugger all.  We then checked out the more legendary tales and saw how they changed through history to suit the times.

Excalibur

We then had a go at a history of Christianity up to the Great Schism. That should keep us going for a while

Guin and Lance

This weeks opening tune was from the movie Excalibur – actually a bit of the old Richard Wagner -Siegfrieds Funeral Music and the outro was Rick Wakeman from The Myths and Legends of King Arthur
