The story of Arthur is old. People have been singing war songs in his honor for probably more than 1,500 years. The popular conception is of a King Arthur, with his lovely queen and noble knights, and the Round Table, and Excalibur, and the Holy Grail, and all the other trappings. How much of the story is based on historical fact and how much is myth?

 

Is King Arthur a real historical figure or just a legend?

 

Welcome, pilgrim, to Camelot and the beginning of your quest for knowledge. You seek to know the great king and find favor in his court? Then you must prove yourself worthy. That will require you to be brave, noble, chivalrous, and above all else, studious. 

 

Here is where you will begin your quest.

 

Your task then is to meet each challenge presented to you. Upon the initial completion of a leg of your quest, you must submit the required proof to His Majesty's counselor, the Lady of the Red Pen, Mrs. Primack. She has His Majesty's full confidence and may require that you backtrack on your journey if needed. Good luck on your quest.

 

Pilgrim... the time has come to begin your quest.

 

Using the Internet, find evidence to support your theory as to whether King Arthur was a real man or made up.  In order to do this you will have to complete several challenges. Good luck
