From time to time at Bohemian Mojo, we believe something needs more in-depth exploration and continuity.

We hope you enjoy the various series we have created thus far and we look forward to delving more deeply into a variety of other topics.

KING ARTHUR: BUSTING THE MYTHS (PART III)

We imagine them clad in shining armour and visored helmets with brightly coloured pennants snapping in the breeze. Mounted on powerful steeds, these famous warriors wielded huge lances and mighty broadswords behind shields decorated with their coats of arms. They would have been an altogether specta...
