A seven-year-old British girl swimming in a lake that is known to be the home of “Excalibur” found a massive sword at the bottom of the lake.
Matilda Jones was with her family at Dozmary Pool in Cornwall, United Kingdom, last week when she found a 4-foot long sword at her feet in the water.
Dozmary Pool is said to be the location that King Arthur received “Excalibur” from the Lady of the Lake. It is also where “Excalibur” was returned to after being wounded at the Battle of Camlann.
“It was a blistering hot day and Matilda asked if we could go for a paddle,” Matilda’s father, Paul Jones, told the Sheffield Star. “She was only waist deep when she said she could see a sword.”
“I told her not to be silly and it was probably a bit of fencing, but when I looked down I realized it was a sword,” Paul Jones added. “It was just there laying flat on the bottom of the lake.”
Jones said that he suspects the four-foot metal sword is roughly 20 to 30 years old and is a film prop.
