Chivalrous knights, fair maidens, imposing castles, daring deeds, round tables... all are part of the enduring and enchanting King Arthur legend. But is this all just popular legend or is there some actual truth in the myth? When it comes to Arthur, the difficult thing about trying to get to sort the facts from the fiction is that so many countries claim ownership. The Welsh are certain he's theirs, while the Scots reckon he was a man of Dalriada - in other words, one of them. But the English claim he can only be one of theirs. Jamie attempts to uncover the truth about who King Arthur really was.
