& How it
- Arthur knew he was going
to die. He gave Excalibur to Sir Bedivere. He told him to
return it to the magical lake.
- Bedivere pretended to do
what he was told; but he hid Excalibur under a bush instead.
- Arthur asked Bedivere
what happened when he threw the sword into the lake. Bedivere
said that it sank.
- Arthur knew he was lying
and told him to go and do the job properly.
- Bedivere threw the sword
into the lake. He saw the hand of the ‘Lady of the Lake’
come out of the water to catch it.
- Three Queens arrived in
a boat and took Arthur away to the Isle of Avalon.
- It is thought that he
died there soon afterwards.
