    The Tradition: Geoffrey of Monmouth and other medieval Arthurian writers tell us that Arthur was taken to the Isle of Avalon to be healed of his wounds after the Battle of Camlann.

Stafford High School principal Daniel Hatch says he wants the programs to be long-term, not just a lecture that's forgotten. The school will pick 30 students to participate...
