The Duke and The Decoy

The Duke and The Decoy by Charles Parkinson

This is a story about King Arthur, but not one of those romantic, brave heroic stories about a king and his knights of the round table.  This is a book that delves into the history of the lands of the time and the never ending discussion about whether there ever was one real person, King Arthur, or if it is a legend or folklore possibly made up of several different men.

While there are many things we will never know, things that have been lost through the age, there are many things that we can confirm, such as the layout of the lands and the events of the time, wars and the few written facts of who was ruler at the time.

Included in this detailed history are many photographs, maps and graphs.  The author is quite thorough in his history, without making this a boring history lesson.  If you are even remotely interested in the real truth about “King Arthur”, this is a very good read.
