Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a remarkable late Middle English alliterative poem. Its author is unknown, but the dialect of the poem has been pinned down to the North-West Midlands of England in the late 14th century. I have long been intrigued by the poem and in the article below I have set out some new arguments about the exact location of the action in the poem and the identity of the poet’s patron.                

This illustration from the Gawain manuscript shows Gawain on horseback approaching a cave with the Green Knight in the background wielding his axe.   

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

The article in which I present my proposal for a new location for Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is due to be published in the January issue of History Today.
