Excalibur The Sword of the King
By: Julia Baugh Excalibur's Tale Reflection What I Liked/Disliked: What I Learned: What I Would Improve Upon: Excalibur's Last Battle and Modern Day: The Lady of the Lake: The Sword is Stolen: Origins: Thesis: Main Points: The Points From the mysterious Lady of the Lake giving it to Arthur to the tragedy that was the Battle of Camlann, Excalibur has had many exciting adventures, fought many battles, and slayed many wicked foes. Excalibur was forged in Avalon by an elvish smith
The Lady of the Lake gave Excalibur to King Arthur
Excalibur was stolen by Morgan le Fay
Excalibur took part in the Battle of Camlann Excalibur was originally called Caliburn, but it was called Caledfwlch in Welsh
Excalibur was forged by an elvish smith in Avalon
Excalibur was invincible and its sheath protected the one who wore it The Sword in the Stone shattered during a battle with King Pellinore, but in some versions a giant broke it instead
Merlin took Arthur to the Lady of the Lake
The Lady of the Lake gave Excalibur to King Arthur Morgan le Fay stole the sword and gave it to the knight she loved, Accalon
Arthur retrieved it and killed Accalon after Accalon tried to kill him
Morgan stole the sheath during the night
It was never seen again Arthur used Excalibur to kill the evil Mordred, who had tried to take over Arthur's throne
Mordred injures Arthur before he dies
Arthur asks the knight Bedivere or Girflet to return the sword to the lake
After pretending to return Excalibur twice, the knight throws Excalibur into the lake
Nowadays, there are movies, hotels, and sword replicas based on Excalibur I liked learning the details about a topic that most people only know the basics about. I also enjoyed learning about adventures of Arthur and Excalibur.
I disliked how the differing myths made it harder to tell the facts, since no one answer was certain to be right or wrong. I learned that King Arthur's sword accounted for a great deal of his power. Without Excalibur, he would not have been protected from the heavy tides of battle. Also, the moral of when Morgan le Fay stole Excalibur and its sheath is to be careful. Make sure you know the motives of the person if you are dealing with a powerful item.

I learned, technology-wise, how to operate Prezi. The templates make life easier for beginners.

I also learned that just because you have an invincible sword does not make YOU invincible. Do not trust a sorceress just because she acts sweet. If you have a sheath that makes you invincible, put it in a magic-proof safe when you are not using it.

Mostly, I learned that nobody is perfect. People will do anything for revenge. Swords were the weapons of choice during medieval times. People have actually searched for Excalibur in rivers. Check the motives of others before you let them borrow your valuables. Next time, I would:
Make as many notecards as possible in the beginning.
Find as many sources as possible.
Organize the names of all my documents.
