Smithsonian Magazine Parades Its Ignorance

Anybody who reads a decent amount of King Arthur material is going to find out that there were knights who were Saracens, knights who were black, knights who were from this far country and that. It’s not a secret. This is the sort of thing that seventh-grade gamers have memorized like Pokemon.

But Smithsonian wishes to claim that nobody knows this stuff, apparently based on some comments about some TV show somewhere.

Well, I’m glad that Sir Morien’s existence as a character is getting more attention; but could the article be any more demeaning?
