March 19, 2023 — Mark Olly with Tim Swartz

Gene and cohost Tim Swartz present a return appearance by Mark Olly, an internationally recognized author, TV producer/presenter, writer, lecturer, broadcaster, musician and artist. His recent book, “The Polychronicon of Merlin, Joseph & Arthur,” is real history and archaeology, not just the invention of creative minds. It reveals incidents and characters as they really were, listed in chronological order, leaving the impression that Britain has always been a very different place to the one painted by popular history. Merlin becomes one of an ancient line of Pythagorean scholars and political visionaries, Joseph of Arimathea a religious dissident fleeing persecution and death to far off foreign shores, Arthur a hardened womanizing battle leader who loses his entire family and culture to war and eventually natural disaster. And what about the legendary search for the Holy Grail?
