List of Arthurian Texts (Ancient and Modern)

If there is one literary figure responsible for most of what we now consider modern fantasy, it’s that of King Arthur. While we can’t possibly list all of the media in the Arthurian Legends, we can list some of the most significant. This is the Arthurian media timeline.

What’s on the Arthurian Media timeline?

This timeline does not attempt to list everything with any connection to the Arthurian legends. Doing so would be all but impossible. But we do attempt to list most of the more significant contributions to the Arthurian mythos. And we’ve also attempted to keep our list to that which is easiest to obtain. Some stories are highly obscure and hard to track down. For this reason, we try and stick with the tales that you can easily get your hands on.

You’ll see this list is divided into two main sections:

  1. Ancient Texts: The first part of this timeline focuses on ancient texts that are related to King Arthur. While most of these are public domain, some of them have English translations that are copyrighted. We’ve tried to provide links to all public domain materials where possible. These texts are restricted to some of the most notable Arthurian texts, those that progressed the mythos forward in important ways.
  2. Modern Media: The second part of this timeline has to do with more modern adaptations. These include novels, films, television shows, and some comic books.

We hope you enjoy this timeline! If you like it, you might want to consider visiting our website that focuses exclusively on the Arthurian Legends. Check it out!

And if you see any significant story you think we should add, don’t hesitate to let us know!
