The trappings of the Medieval Hero are woven from vibrant strands of mythology, folklore, and legend.

Archetypes endure over time, survive the demise of specific cultures, and indeed continue to flourish to the present day precisely because they tap into the dreams and nightmares shared by all humanity, the life-journey common to us all, and a more or less universal mode of human expression.
