The Excalibur miniature is a copy of the sword that legends tells us was carried by King Arthur.
The sword was said to be the Roman Sword of Office inherited by Arthur, the British leader who defeated the Anglo Saxons at the battle of Baden in 493 AD.
The ornamentation, according to Roman Military documents records the dual serpents as the insignia of the Segontium garrison in Gwynedd-Arthur’s homeland. It is interesting to note that the Roman Serpent, the tribal emblem of Gwynedd ultimately became the red dragon of Wales.
