Folklore and Legend Film Series

Join us at Martin Luther King, Jr. on November 10 at Noon in the Auditorium A-5 to view the documentary Quest for King Arthur. This production delves into multiple historical figures who may have contributed to Arthurian legend, as early as the third century and as late as the 9th. It cites as our primary source of the legend the writings of Sir Thomas Mallory.

The film examines the role of myth and legend to Celtic, Briton, and Anglo-Norman culture. It provides analysis by scholars in literature, archaeology and history on sources for the a historical Arthur or a composite character.

Please join the DC Library for this presentation.
