MTKD - Better Than Game of Thrones: Medieval Tales of Kings & Dragons *NEW*

Description

Why are old medieval stories popular today, and are they important? What historical truth lies behind these tales of dragon slayers, treasures guarded by supernatural beings, and quests for honor, faith and truth that feature in the deeds of Beowulf, of King Arthur and his knights, and the quests of Germanic hero Siegfried? We will explore elements of a few popular and less well-known stories and poems, to see how these inform us of the human condition in medieval times as well as today. Instructor: Anatole Sykley
