The Lion Monument, or the Lion of Lucerne, is a sculpture in Lucerne, Switzerland, designed by Bertel Thorvaldsen and hewn in 1820–21 by Lukas Ahorn. It commemorates the Swiss Guards who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution, when revolutionaries stormed the Tuileries Palace in Paris,France. The American writer Mark Twain (1835–1910) praised the sculpture of a mortally-wounded lion as “the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world.” [via]
Liddington Fort. Liddington is generally favoured as the site of Arthur's greatest victory over the Saxons at Badon Hill. Liddington Castle is a near the town of Badbury (7 miles north of Marlborough, Wilts). It is possible that the invading Saxons might have used the network of Roman roads in the area to attack the large population of British living in the Somerset area. This almost total defeat of the Saxon invaders brought about an extended period of peace to Britain.
