Two More Celtic Swords

Not nearly so old, circa 100 BC. The date puts them about the time of the birth of Julius Caesar, who brought an end to the legendary era in Britain for a while with his reconnaissance in force.

It would be wrong to say that this begins the historical era in Britain, however. The historical era ended again a few hundred years later, and the legendary era returned for a space. There dwells Arthur.

Does feel like swords are just popping out of the ground all over recently. Half expecting one to pop up in Britain stuck firmly in a stone.

That would be nice, wouldn't it?

That would be a divine comedy of something, all right.
