    The legend of King Arthur can be traced as far back as the fourth and fifth centuries. But the earliest tales of Arthur were almost nothing like they are today. There were no wandering minstrels, or ladies–in–waiting, or knights in shining armor taking on bold quests to defend their ladies. Instead, there were tales of giants, and magic cups, and invaders from a foreign land. In some ancient versions of the legend, Arthur is a hero whose deeds are comparable to those of Hercules. In more modern versions, he is merely a king whose knights are the real heroes of the story. The earliest tales of Arthur were spread largely by word of mouth, and very few written accounts survive. Of the ones that do, we do not have the original documents, only copies…

    Communication of thoughts and ideas are not always verbal they can come in different forms such as written languages, sign languages, and even artistic expression via the concept of art and drawings that are often illustrations an artist may hold in their heart and mind. Religious symbols used by Christians have been used to express ideals and beliefs since the pagan era from 849. Pagans used symbols not only because it was a work of art but because their followers were illiterate and symbols were used to educate their followers. The same symbols that were used during the Pagan era are some of the same symbols used today, however in today society religious symbols are used to identify different religions and affiliations with religious organizations. Religious art and symbols are also used to decorate churches, synagogues, and Mosques. Religious Art today is just that artistic symbol with very little or no secret messages. I will discuss the Christian symbols of Gregory the Great and Three Scribes, the Lamentation, and a few other symbols that are very common in identifying religious symbols.…

    The myth says that the blade could cut steel, but the most amazing thing about it was its sheath (Cambriac 14). The sword’s sheath was magical and would keep Arthur safe wherever he went, and it would always heal his wounds. Arthur had won many battles at this point, but when he returned home, he had found that Lancelot had stolen his wife (Cambriac 14). Arthur took his army again and led siege to Lancelot’s castle for many days when finally they struck a deal. Lancelot returned Quenivere to Arthur and was exiled to France. In Arthur’s rage, he followed Lancelot into France leaving his nephew Mordred in charge (Cambriac 14). While Arthur was gone, he received news that his nephew had declared himself king and had taken Quenivere as his Queen. Arthur hurried back home, and in his sleep he had a dream that told him not to attack right away or something terrible would happen. So he sent messengers into the castle to negotiate (Cambriac 14). While they were in the castle, one of the messengers was attacked by a snake. The messenger drew his sword to kill the snake, but the sun sent a glimmer off the blade that Arthur’s army saw. They thought it was a soldier drawing his blade to start a fight so they attacked. (Cambriac 14). This battle went on for many days. During the battle, Arthur’s sword Excalibur and sheath fell off of him leaving him vulnerable (Cambriac 14). Arthur quickly picked up a spear and charged at his nephew. His nephew struck down into his skull while Arthur also piercing his nephew’s heart at the same time. Both of them died. While this was just a myth, Arthur did die in 540 A.D (Cambriac 14). Many people believe that the Welsh king was actually real while other do not, but there are two possible places that he was buried. The first of 2 places where he was possibly burried which is…

    The journal of Daniel Coughlan of Ireland in year 1187 Tuesday, February 18 In the year of our Lord, 1187 Today it has been fifteen years since my birth date, I am now a squire, and am about halfway through the process of becoming a knight. I think being a squire will be much harder than being a page. As a page all I had to do was be a general servant and learn how to read and write. Now, as a squire, I will be an assistant to a knight and learn how to battle. I will get to battle in the tilting yard with other squires. My father hopes that I will get good enough so I can help out in a battle and become a "knight of the sword". He explained to me that a "knight of the sword" is a squire who does so well in a battle that he is immediately made a knight. I think that sounds like a good goal but it also puts a lot more pressure on me when I'm in practice battles.…
