Subject: '...the eyewitness account of Catumandus - Cadfan in Welsh - born in 471 AD near Lugdunum (Lyon) as a result of a brief liaison between his mother and a young and charismatic warrior in the army of the British leader Ambrosius Aurelianus -the young warrior's name, Arthur. Ostensibly on a diplomatic mission from the court of the Eastern Emperor, the young adult Catumandus is sent to Britain where Arthur, now war leader himself, is struggling to hold the British tribes together and stem their internecine tendencies and keep the Saxon invaders at bay.' from the review by Towse Harrison. See our Authors & Reviews section.
Unique Qualities:
Rating: 'Lees not only creates a brilliant, if flawed, character and an entirely believable interpretation of the myth but sets it in a world convincingly built on the knowledge gained from recent historical, archaeological, theological and linguistic research. It is a magnificent achievement and certainly deserves literary recognition and success through mainstream publication.' from the review by Towse Harrison. See our Authors & Reviews section.
