Gawain was once the most important knight at Arthur's court, a shining example of all that was best in chivalry at the time.
But as the popularity of the Arthurian romances grew the character of Gawain diminished, leaving him represented as a villain rather than as Champion of the Goddess.
This result of more than 20 years research into Arthurian and Celtic texts presents a unique view of the mythology of Britain, and the historical changes over a period of many hundreds of years in the religious and mystical traditions of the British.

CASTLEDEN Rodney  
Atlantis Destroyed
cover image of Atlantis Destroyed for sale in New Zealand

Is the account given by Plato historically true?
Castleden first considers the location of Atlantis, re-examining two suggestions put forward in the early twentieth century; Minoan Crete and Minoan Thera.
He outlines the latest research findings on Knossos and Bronze Age Thera, discussing the material culture, trade empire and agricultural system, writing and wall paintings, art, religion and society of the Minoan civilization.
He demonstrates the many parallels between Plato's narrative and the Minoan Civilization in the Aegean.
Castleden discusses how the recent idea of Atlantis as a lost utopia has become confused with Plato's genuine account.

Written with an expert lawyer's insights, Graham explores the psychology of the relationship between Juliet Hulme (now writing as Anne Perry) and Pauline Parker.
