I found these videos on YouTube, hosted by BBC’s “Merlin” Bradley James and Colin Morgan who play Arthur Pendragon and Merlin respectively. The two actors trek across Wales looking for places that Merlin and Arthur might have lived and died. I found the videos very interesting and wanted to share.

As someone who enjoys fantasy fiction and myth, I highly recommend the “Merlin” series. Nearing  the end of its fourth season, it continues to grow in popularity. I look forward to watching the finale for the current season and eagerly await next year’s continued adventures of Merlin, King Arthur, GuinevereMorgana and the Knights of Camelot.
