↳ king arthur’s death and messianic return

Although some consider King Arthur to be a legitimate historical figure, the general consensus is that he is at least partly folklore and literary invention. In any case, King Arthur was an immensely famous leader of the Britons, dated to approximately the late fifth or early sixth century A.D.

The stories of King Arthur and his knights became very popular in the medieval period, with the best-known accounts of the tales coming from authors such as Geoffrey of Monmouth and Chrétien de Troyes, the latter of whom introduced stories of the Holy Grail and Sir Lancelot to the legend, and whose work later became the basis for Arthurian romances. The stories pertaining the legendary king and his companions are compositely referred to as the Matter of Britain.

There are many stories of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, but they all culminate with the Battle of Camlann, the final battle of the legendary king. The story is more or less as follows: King Arthur, after pursuing Sir Lancelot to France, returns to find that Mordred, who is traditionally either Arthur’s illegitimate son or his nephew, has taken over the land and therefore betrayed him. A battle erupts, Mordred is slain and Arthur mortally wounded.

Of King Arthur’s fate after the Battle of Camlann, there are three popularly accepted versions. The earlier states that he survived, but was transported to the mythical island of Avalon to be healed of his wounds. The later version says that he died in the battle, but was still taken to Avalon. The third version simply states that the legendary king was turned into a raven. Another, rather obscure interpretation, says that after death, he was turned into the constellation of Boötes, the brightest star of which is called Arcturus. However, all versions agree that King Arthur is fated to return one day, which is why he’s often referred to as the once and future king.

Better Identification of Viking Corpses Reveals: Half of the Warriors Were Female | Tor.com

"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.
