Could you please cite your sources on this:
"Percival is most commonly known for retrieving Excalibur from a clan of mischievious faery creatures, whose only distinguishing characteristics were their brightly colored headwear and small stature. This eventually lead to the present day Anglo-Saxon folklore of garden gnomes."
This Wikipedia page is the only place I, or a friend who has a doctorate in literature of that time period, could find this detail. I would quite like to read the story that tells this adventure, if it exists. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 18:38, 11 October 2015 (UTC)
