Ah! Great find! What a cool site! That does look like the unknown entity :D

Is this not where Lara asked Alister to go at the end of Legend? :D

yes, yes it is! So I tried to get ahead of him by searching for avalon, but no results. Must be in secret archive ^.^

harvard also has a great site, but not so well designed.

from their collections I found a sketch of king arthur from the 19th century, looks like the ones in the England tourist attraction level huh!
