A few years ago there was a Scottish cultural exhibit being held over at Grand Central Station down on Lexington Avenue. The year was 2005 and I am guessing that this was around April based on the time stamp of my photographs. That was a busy time for me as I had just officially launched PiercingMetal.com but that can be found on another blog. I had to say that for the most part the exhibit didn’t do anything for me, but there was one item on display that was a clear “must see” and a reason to adventure over there without any question. That item was the William Wallace sword.
For those who might not be in the know, William Wallace was a Scottish knight and a patriot in the eyes of his countrymen and lived during the late 1200’s. His was a life of combat and freedom fighting according to his Wikipedia entry and you can learn more about him by clicking on his Wikipedia link which I will have ready for you at the close of this piece.
