The only physical artefact with a reputable claim to have genuinely come from King Arthur, and to have survived into recorded history, was his crown.
It was part of England's crown jewels... until 1650 when Oliver Cromwell (who had just declared England a republic) had it melted down and sold to an
True fact. The crown jewels now in the Tower of London were created after the restoration of the monarchy, around 350 years ago, because all the
originals (a huge collection of ancient objects) were destroyed, so we can never study them or even be sure what they looked like. An act of cultural
vandalism that makes the Taliban's demolition of the Bamiyan Buddhas pale into insignificance.
