King Arthur on the Internet
WELCOME! This homepage is a project for my 10th grade English class in conclusion to our study of the Arthurian legends. The purpose of this page is to explore and evaluate resources related to the Arthurian legends found on the World Wide Web. Included on this page are a few pictures and a long list of links.
The World Wide Web contains an extensive number of resources, anything anyone can imagine. There is also a wide variety of resources about the Arthurian legends found on the net. I came upon over 100 different pages dedicated to Arthur. Out of those 100 pages, I chose about 25 to evaluate. These pages are all very unique. Some are school projects like mine, some are very serious sources to be used as reference, and some are just for fun. I evaluated each one according to the important role it played in the legends, whether it be characters, places, values of the Round Table, or weaponry. I also looked for symbols, illustrations, graphics, clear explanations of purpose, number of links, and written context.
This project has not only increased my knowledge of the Arthurian legends, it has expanded my scope in the use of internet and the making of a homepage. Read on, enjoy, and feel free to click on any of the links to browse.
