Nope the sword from the stone broke after a bit and he just threw it away Excalibur was a sword that was offered up to him from an arm that came out of a mysterious lakeIt's a fount of delightfully messed up characters There's the aforementioned Arthur the star a

Particularly one that and forgive me for this feels so dumbed down?I have read many of Ackroyd's non fiction books and I have always been very impressed with him as a writer but I couldn't help but be disappointed with this It smacks of those 'modern' revisions of the Bible where it may be 'accessible' and how I hate that word in connection with literature but much of the beauty and majesty of the language is lost This book left me co
