Visiting Arthur’s last battle

Yesterday I visited the assumed battle site at Camlann Slaughter’s Bridge. Here, according to legend, Arthur intended to make peace with his nephew / son Mordred. But a snake in the grass startled a knight. As the knights sword cut off the snake’s head, it also marked the start of the war. In the end Arthur killed Mordred, but Mordred also mortally wounded Arthur. Walking around the battle site I found two crow’s feathers on the path. At the site there lies an inscribed memorial stone of the battle under two or three sycamore trees. Here I paid tribute to a legendary tragic battle.
