History of the Kings of Britainby Geoffrey of Monmouth
It is an epic work spanning two thousand years, from the founding of Britain by Brutus to the coming of the Saxons. As a historian Geoffrey is sometimes less than reliable, but as the chronicler of half-legendary figures whose deeds have captured the imagination of millions, he is unrivalled: Lear, Cymbeline amd , above all, Arthur was first recorded here, and the Historia's influence inspired Malory and Tennyson, Shakespeare and Dryden.
