King Arthurus (King Arthus) 559 - 608 AD Excalibur, Merlin, Camelot, Khemalohatee, Tintagel, Stonehenge, Milk Hill, Vale of Pewsey, Stargate 11
Excalibur is the legendary sword of King Arthur, sometimes attributed with magical powers or associated with the rightful sovereignty of Great Britain. Sometimes Excalibur and the Sword in the Stone (the proof of Arthur's lineage) are said to be the same weapon, but in most versions they are considered separate. The sword was associated with the Arthurian legend very early. In Welsh, the sword is called Caledfwlch.
♥As a Celtic symbol, the sword is connected to gain, wealth, honor, and establishment of hierarchy. Often swords we be consider markers of familial ties, and indicate victories won for the purpose of insuring the survival of blood lineage. Interestingly, swords were thought to be given as offerings by releasing them into the depths of the oceans
The once and future isle ... by Nick Williams. Only the Tor didn't have the tower at the top in Arthur's day. The tower was built, I can't remember exactly, but I think around the 12/13/14th Centuries. I'll remember one day. other than that, in Arthur's time there was water surrounding the base of the Tor, as Bedwyr tells how they crossed on boats before climbing to the top in 'Facing the Bear' (Silurian book 5)..
