He has spent years researching various different myths and legends from around the world, with his primary area of interest being the legends of King Arthur. In May , Caleb published King Arthur: The Man Who Conquered Europe, outlining his theories on the origin of the legend.

    Among the population in which this Church was planted there was still, doubtless, much of the earlier heathenism, modified or even unaltered, and there were also districts into which the Gospel had hardly penetrated; but the Early British Church was a powerful factor in the national life, and was as yet uncoloured by sectarian division.   But I think Arthurian books conjure more magic than most! Centuries of authors and artists have drawn inspiration from the “Matter of Britain,” leaving rich treasures for rare book collectors to delight in. A fine library devoted to Arthurian legend transcends bibliographic boundaries. It includes poetry and prose.
