HISTORICAL

Early British Kingdoms
The definitive website focusing on the ancient kingdoms of Britain! No study of "Arthurian" Britain can be complete without a thorough understanding of the information available here. Now mostly available on Britannia.

Arthuriana
The quarterly Journal of the International Arthurian Society-North American Branch.

Arthurian Resources
One of the top Arthurian areas on the web. Thomas Green of Exeter College, Oxford puts forward the idea of King Arthur as a purely mythical figure through discussions on the Historicity and Historicisation of Arthur, Arthurian Literature, Arthurian Characters, Myrddin and a particularly good section on Arthurian Archaeological Sites.

Arthurnet Online Discussion Group: Details of how to join the Arthurnet listserver for e-mail discussions of all things Arthurian. A must for the serious researcher.

Arthurnet Online Discussion Group Archive: Indispensable searchable archive of past discussions on the Arthurnet.

Arturius Rex - A Quest for Camelot: David F. Carroll plugs his theory concerning a Scottish Arthur with fascinating extracts about the Kingdom of Mannan, Camelot, the Round Table, the Battle of Camlann and Arthur's Sister.

Camlan: An "exploration of Arthurian Britain" covering Arthurian Archaeology (Cadbury, Glastonbury & Tintagel), Dark Age Weaponry (& Battles), Historical References and Resources (including long extracts from Nennius and Gildas), An Arthurian Chronology (based on the Riothamus theory), Information on the Holy Grail and Queen Boudicca of the Iceni. Well worth a browse.

Celtic Twlight - Legends of Camelot: Probably the best site for full-text transcriptions of literary Arthurian texts: the Mabinogion, Chretien, Malory, Tennyson and more. Also extracts from original sources: Gildas, Nennius, the Annals Cambriae and the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. Particularly notable is the complete translation of the Gododdin.

Elmet Heritage Site: Yorkshireman John Davey's site dedicated to the history of Elmet. Check out the British Era and Dark Age Battles. Still heavily under construction at the moment though.

King Arthur: A Man for All Ages: David White's explorations in the History and Legends of Arthur. Historical references, literary sources, places to visit and an Arthurian poll to take part in! Also an excellent series of 'Frequently asked questions' such as "Did the Round Table really seat 1,600 men?".

King Arthur & Cuneglasus: Interesting site covering Mark Devere Davis' own theory identifying King Arthur with Cuneglasus of Rhos. Interpretations mostly via Gildas, but more convincing than Phillips & Keatman.

Legends: King Arthur and the Matter of Britain
The Arthurian area of the "Legends" Site. Nicely set out and illustrated, with short information areas leading to linked sites. Well worth a look for General Sources, History & Archaeology, Welsh Bards, Malory, Gawain and Guinevere.

Llys Arthur
Jeff Davies's Gwarnant Site has it all here. Good site for everything Arthur, but particularly original early sources. Complete translations and extracts from the Gallic Chronicles, Nennius, the Annales Cambriae and links to Gildas. Also copies for some of Arthur's disputed genealogies.

Quest: An academic Arthurian Site and Looking Good! Caliburn, the Arthurian Legends Club of the University of Idaho bring us the Origins of the Arthurian Story, Celtic Mythological Influences upon the Legend, Characters, Arthurian Sites, excellent Archaeology section, Essays on Various Arthurian subjects and even a Game! This site has very quickly become one of the major Arthurian players on the Web.

Ruin and Conquest of Britain: A very informative time-line that tells everything that is known from primary sources for the period 400 to 600. Hard facts only to be found here - if you can call Dark Age Records that. Produced by Dr. Howard Wiseman.

Saxon Shore
Dark Age site covering the Historical Arthur. Smart graphics and lots of goodies. Extracts and full text from original sources: Gildas, Nennius, Annales Cambriae, Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, Jordane's Gothic History, Gerald of Wales' account of the Exhumation of Arthur's Body, The Elegy for Gereint & Welsh Poetry including Y Gododdin. Also zipped downloads of maps, genealogies and the like; excellent articles area for new theories and star rated booklist & links too.

Short History of Arthurian Archaeology: Good summary of the discoveries so far from traditional Arthurian archaeological sites, care of Michelle Biehl.
