How the Kennedy era got the name Camelot?
The Camelot question has been answered since 1989 in a book titled "The Kennedy Encyclopedia (page 30) written by Caroline Latham & Jeannie Sakol. Publisher is NAL Books in Canada copyright Latham and Sakol 1989. Quote: It was not until after the death of President John F. Kennedy that the concept of Cemelot began to be associated with his administration, and the person who made the explicit association with king Arthur's Court, with its high ideals and progressive manners, was Jacqueline Kennedy. By ironic coinicidence, two days before the President's asassination, the Kennedys held a ball at the White House and the Marine Band had played selections from My Fair Lady and Camelot, both favorites of the President. The music included the tune that was later to seem a nostalgic summing-up of the Kennedy Presidency: Don't let it be forgot that once there was a spot for one brief shining moment that was known as Camelot In an interview given just weeks after the President's death, Mrs. Kennedy told journalist Theodore H. White, "When Jack quoted something, it was usually classical, but I'm so ashamed of myself--all I keep thinking of is this line from a musical comedy." She then quoted the lines from Camelot, citing them as favorites of the President. There will be great Presidents again but there will never be another Camelot again. White later told biographer C. David Heymann that he realized the comparison was a "mis-reading of history," but added that it seemed a small favor to grant the former First Lady "So the epitaph of the Kennedy administration became Camelot--a magic moment in American history when gallant men danced with beautfiul women, when great deeds were done, and when the White House became the center of the universe.

In British legend, Camelot was the capital of the kingdom of King Arthur. Cadbury Castle in Somerset, an isolated Iron Age hill fort, is the site most often identified with …Camelot. Archaeological evidence confirms that during the 6th century the fort was occupied by a powerful British warrior chieftain. However, local folklore advances alternative sites at Camelford in Cornwall and Winchester in Hampshire as the original Camelot.

No speech... it was an interview she gave to Theodore White of Life magazine in her Hyannis Port, MA home. Dec. 1963.
The kennedys were reffered to as Camelot as they were a very large and talented family and many were well remembered after their death.
You can get to Camelot if your a member and you need certain magic level to teleport their other wise you can walk their but it gets very boring.

In Stone Age
"Paleo" is a prefix meaning old. Lithic is a suffix meaning "stone" or "rock". Archeologists and anthropologists who study people and their cultures from long ago have devi…sed a set of terms to divide the progression and development of human cultures as time progressed. Most of the evidence that these researchers found buried in the earth ARE REMAINS OF THE TOOLS THAT THEY MADE. Very little remains of wood and leather relics. Some bone, tooth and antler tools are found. Many stone tools are found because they do not decay so easily. The precise progression in technology from one tool-making material to the next is neither clear nor agreed by some workers [students of the past]. Bamboo, for instance, is not found amidst some advanced cultures in the far east although there is abundant evidence that a culture of considerable sophistication was extant there. In short, "paleolithic" means old stone tools. With all best wishes for your further study, Firstmate.
