this story takes one from the 21st century way, way back in time. in the last days of the goddess and the power of women, the Mists of Avalon is probably the most convincing story of the times Arthur and the Nights of the Round Table. it glorifys no one and simply tells the story. the Druids and Priestesses are intialy raised above the Christians, but in the end one sees that they are the same in the fight for power. what was a fight for the land and the goddess falls down in a story of human life. it shows how the dark ages became the dark ages.
