You won't find the Holy Grail under the Louvre... Scholars have long known that the Grail is essentially legendary -- a mystic key forever sought by those seeking Enlightenment, a quest in which the search is as important as the result. Theories abound as to its true origins and meaning, most of them unprovable. But now, in a revolutionary new quest for a deeper understanding of Grail lore, folklorist and historian Stuart McHardy draws on decades of research in his native Scotland to expose a phenomenally powerful force of nature that could be the genesis of the Grail. How does the crucial idea of the 'sacred feminine' or goddess link to Scotland's past -- and present? In Arthurian legend, was the historic "king" really Welsh? How can we break the coded history of the Grail embedded throughout the Scottish landscape? Chapters include: The Grail in Literature; The Warrior Way; Nine Maidens Sites; Scotland Outside the Roman World; Arthur's Battles; Sleeping Warriors and Kidnapped Musicians; Quests and Questers; Symbolic Cauldrens; Avalon; Importance of the Mabinogion; Fairies as Ancestors; Pictish Symbols; Scottish References in the Grail; Druids and Shamens; Sleeping Giant of Benarty; Islands of Women; Spirals and Cup-and-Ring Marks; Extensive Sea Travel; tons more.
