banner art for the list of arthurian resources

The Arthurian mythos is expansive and requires an insane amount of research to master. Fortunately, we’ve put together a list of resources to help you out. This is our list of the best Arthurian resources and reference books out there.

What’s on this List of Arthurian Resources?

This list consists primarily of reference books to help you learn more and more about King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Once you make it through these books, you’ll know most of the scholarship on the subject. We’ve also included a number of documentaries and some really great websites to help you out.

Where to start?

This list can be a lot to swallow, as it’s a lot to read. We HIGHLY recommend starting with the Arthurian Handbook, which will give you a great overview of the subject. The Illustrated Encyclopedia is pretty great too. After that the documentaries are a great way to familiarize yourself with the subject on a somewhat basic level. Then you’ll be ready to dive into the heavier books to learn even more about the Arthurian Legends.

We hope you enjoy this timeline! If you like it, you might want to consider visiting our Arthurian Legends Hub. Check it out!

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