The legend of King Arthur has been told and retold for centuries. As the king who united a nation, his is the story of England itself. But what if Arthur wasn''t English at all? As writer and activist Adam Ardrey discovered, the reason historians have had little success identifying the historical Arthur may be incredibly simple: He wasn''t an Englishman at all. He was from Scotland.

Finding Arthur chronicles Ardrey''s unlikely quest to uncover the secret of Scotland''s greatest king and conqueror, which has been hidden in plain sight for centuries. His research began as a simple exploration of a notable Scottish clan, but quickly it became clear that many of the familiar symbols of Arthurian legend--the Round Table, the Sword in the Stone, the Lady of the Lake--are based on very real and still accessible places in the Scottish Highlands.

Sure to be controversial, Finding Arthur rewrites the legend of King Arthur for a new age.
Adam Ardrey is the author of Finding Merlin: The Truth Behind the Legend of the Great Arthurian Mage, also available from Overlook. He is a writer and human rights advocate and has previously worked in television and as an attorney.
