The medieval romances give the name Camelot to the central, most important and most romantic of Arthur’s castles, and it is portrayed as a city as well as a fortress. So much did Camelot come to symbolize the new order Arthur created that its name conjures, still, a poignantly nostalgic image of otherworldly idealism, a dream of a perfect city, a perfect society. Camelot is a utopia, a castle in Never-Never Land where justice and the perfect social order prevail, a dream city where everyone has as much food and drink as they want. There is nowhere today called Camelot or anything like it, and many attempts have been made to identify its location. But did Camelot really exist, and if so where was it?
