'Myths and Legends of the UK' Complete Set

Great Britain's history is full of myths and legends. One of the most famous ones is about the legendary King Arthur, who ruled about 500 AD, and the knights of his famous Round Table.

Arthur gained his power with the help of Merlin the Wizard: after the death of Uther Pendragon, the High King, Merlin cast a spell over his sword Excalibur, which would only be broken, when the true King of Britain would arrive to pull the sword from a great stone. Arthur finally was the one to succeed and became the ruler of Britain at the young age of 15.

Arthur is inseparablylinked to another mystery: that of the holy grail. It was the chalice, Jesus used during the last supper and in which Joseph of Arimathea is said to have caught the blood of Christ on the cross.

According to the legend of Glastonbury Abbey, Joseph of Arimathea stuck his stick into the ground when he visited the British isle. The stick turned into a thorn bush - the Holy Thorn. Glastonbury Abbey is supposed to be resting place of King Arthur and his wife Guinevere.

Other legends tell of heroes like Robin Hood, who stood up against arbitrary power, holy men like the friar andbishop Patrick of Ireland, who lived in the fifth century.

Or St George, who has been England's patron saint since 1222. The Saint George Cross is still the main element of both the Englishand the British flag.

Did you know that ...
... George, who became the English patron saint, was born in Meline at the River Euphrates in today's Turkey?
... the earliest recorded sighting of a monster living in Scotland's Loch Ness dates back 1,500 years?
... the Cerne Abbas Giant in Dorset - an ancient naked figure sculpted into the chalk hillside above Cerne Abbas, is an impressive 180 ft high?
