In his search for the Hobbits, illustrator John Howe explores the relationships between the world of Middle-earth and the major European legends. He travels to Cornwall, in the United Kingdom, in the footsteps of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.

Storyteller Nicolas Mezzalira tells him about the birth of King Arthur and then about the origins of the Knights of the Round Table and the Quest for the Holy Grail, and Professor Leo Garruthers highlights the links between these legends and the Fellowship of the Ring in The Lord of the Rings. For John Howe, this episode is also an opportunity to examine the links between legend and history.
