England | For first time, archaeologists excavate neolithic tomb associated with Arthurian legends

King Arthur, the mythical ruler of Camelot, may be best known for pulling the magical sword Excalibur from a stone, but there's another rock formation that bears his name hidden away in the English countryside.

Archaeologists are for the first time excavating a 5,000-year-old Neolithic chambered tomb that's called Arthur's Stone in honor of the legendary medieval king. The project is the result of a partnership between researchers at the University of Manchester in England and English Heritage, a charity that preserves hundreds of historic buildings in England.
