Why All The Fuss About Camelot?
Camelot has long been associated with the interpretations of the Arthurian legend; Camelot cannot be mentioned without conjuring up the image of the famed castle.
An early novel by Mark Twain took place in Camelot; later versions never really pin down a location but paint it as a romantic vision of The Middle Ages.
Whenever there is a reference to a romantic notion or relationship often the term Camelot is used, such was the case of John and Jackie Kennedy.
The chess set wood explained:
Briar wood defined: This type of wood is from the hard woody root of the briar Erica arborea; often used in making tobacco pipes.
