King Arthur and Excalibur, or Siegfried and the sword Balmung – swords and their bearers have always given rise to a host of myths and legends. They are at the same time symbols of power, magical weapons and lethal implements. The spell of the sword remains unbroken up to the present day. The exhibition traces the cultural history of these legendary weapons and explores the phenomenon of their enduring appeal.
