Resumo

Hank Morgan is a man from 19th-century Connecticut who, after having a head injury, wakes to find himself 1300 years in the past in the court of King Arthur of medieval England.

The people of the time notice that he is strange yet knowledgeable, but due to his odd clothing and language, is sentenced to death but avoids it by knowing of a coming eclipse and tricking the nobility into thinking he himself blotted out the sun.

King Arthur elevates Hank to a ministerial position and Hank goes about trying to reeducate the people in his more modern thinking. On one journey, the king and Hank are captured having been pretending they were poor and are about to be sold into slavery but are rescued. The king abolished slavery to Hank's delight.

Later, after Hank meets a woman, Merlin, a sorcerer who initially disliked Hank, casts a spell upon him to make him sleep for 1300 years. Hank wakes up on his deathbed in Connecticut dreaming about the woman with whom he fell in love.
