3 Gilbert, Adrian; Wilson, Alan; Blackett, Baram. THE HOLY KINGDOM. THE QUEST FOR THE REAL KING ARTHUR.
London Bantam 1998 0593040627 / 9780593040621 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
379 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w maps, family trees, colour photographs. "(T)he authors, using ancient historical records, show that Britain was never fully conquered by the Romans but retained its culture, its royal families intermarrying with the Caesars. With the coming of Joseph of Arimathea in AD 37, its kings became converts to Christianity and the island the secret home of many of Jesus's followers. Out of these crosswinds blowing from Rome and Judea emerged the Holy Kingdom that was eventually to give birth to Constantine the Great and turn the whole Roman Empire to Christianity. Two British kings, both named Arthur - one, Arthur I of Warwickshire, the fourth-century son of the emperor Magnus Maximus, the other his sixth-century descendant and a king of Glamorgan - stand out like beacons in a darkening world. Their careers rolled into one and elaborated upon by the medieval poets, they became the single King Arthur of myth and legend. As a result of research going back over forty years, the authors are able to reveal the location of the graves of both Arthurs, the burial place of the 'true cross of Christ' and many other mysteries. This astounding book, corrects the falsified notions of history perpetuated by earlier scholars to reveal a deeper and more exciting vision. It uncovers a secret historical current that links our own times with the mysteries of Arthur and the Holy Grail. In doing so, it challenges many orthodox beliefs perpetuated by a Church which long ago lost touch with its roots." Light browning to edges of text block - migrates very lightly into page margins, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny tear at top of spine. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minoe edge wear, tiny tear at top of spine.
