  • Abstract: This study examines the Channel crossings of King Arthur and his men in Geoffrey of Monmouth’s Historia regum Britanniae (c. 1136), Wace’s Roman de Brut (c. 1155), and Lawman’s Brut (c. 1200). The landing sites Totnes, Richborough, Portchester, Southampton, Sandwich, and Romney are discussed. It appears that each author has a different purpose in mind as he composes his respective narrative.
