The Camelot Project

The Camelot Project is designed to make available a database of Arthurian texts, images, bibliographies, and basic information. Two sections of the website provide direct access to digital primary sources:

  • ‘Authors and texts.’ A large number of texts about the legend of King Arthur, sorted according to author. They date from the Middle Ages until the present day, but emphasis is on the modern period. Most texts are in English. For non-English texts, an English translation is provided. They are shown in modern edition.
  • ‘Artists and images.’ A large number of images about the legend of King Arthur, sorted according to author. Here as well emphasis is on images from the United Kingdom and from the modern period. Images can be downloaded in JPEG format.

The sections ‘Characters’, ‘Symbols and motifs’, ‘Places’, and ‘Creatures’ provide information on lists of characters, symbols/motifs, places, and creatures from the Arthurian legends. By selecting one item, a list of associated texts and images is also given. Basic search on the entire website is also possible.

The Camelot Project, begun in 1995, is sponsored by the University of Rochester and prepared in the Rossell Hope Robbins Library, located in Rush Rhees Library.
