  • Values In The Sword Of The Rightful King

    Arthur tries to be as honest as possible but, as a politician or king that is not always the case. That being said, Arthur is not honest to the people of Cadbury when he holds the sword pulling contest just so that he can pull it out of the rock because of Merlinnus’s spell on the sword.

  • Stratum 600

    Its start date comes from a coin of Claudius. Claudius ruled Rome as emperor from 41-54 CE, so an estimated date of the making of the coin is 43 CE, the start date of Stratum 600. Southern Gaulish terra sigillata was found in this Stratum, and it solidifies the fact that the civilization that used to be in this layer was Roman. Boudica’s Rebellion took place in this stratum.
