Sword in the Stone

A SWORD dubbed Excalibur, after the legendary sword of King Arthur, has mysteriously been pulled from a lakeside stone in the Brecon Beacons, one of the places mooted for Camelot.

The sword was fixed into a stone with cement near Llangorse Lake, in the Brecon Beacons. It was made by a local blacksmiths and the attraction was popular with children and tourists. Its disappearance is a real mystery, or perhaps not!

In the conclusion to the The Earth Emperor’s Eye, Ben Whittenbury acquires the genuine article in the Royston Cave and uses it to disempower the Grim Dread, bringing salvation to humanity and herald a new dawn for beleaguered Mother Nature. So, could it be that with the loss of the replica sword, all hope has been lost! What might be the consequences? It’s ominous indeed, so let’s lighten the mood.
