Welcome to a subversive that is web site concerned with alternative views of King Arthur and his knights

Yes, with alternative views of King Arthur and his knights. It does not re-iterate the cosy world of errant knights righting wrongs, but examines unusual topics, or mainstream topics in an unusual way. Its driving force is the desire to tease out the Celtic origins of Arthurian myth. Because it makes radical points it is rather wordy. Chiefly because I felt it necessary to justify these points with references and quotations. If you find it too much to take at a single sitting, I recommend that you print out the sections that interest you and read them at your leisure.
