For those of you who do not already know, Tesla was a real person who experimented with electricity and pioneered many developments in electricity that we use everyday. However, towards the end of his life he became a bit of a 'mad scientist' and tried to develop what he called, his very own 'death ray'. He failed obviously, but had he succeeded it would've been the weapon to 'end all war' as we know it:

He also built a magnifying transmitter, which was capable of delivering millions of bolts of electricity..an invention in which we saw a lot of during Tomb Raider: Legend's Kazakhstan levels:

Furthermore, Legend was very informative in teaching the players that the Sword of The Stone and Excalibur were two completely different swords. Throughout history this has often been confused or misconstrued, and a good explanation of this mixup can be found here:

Lastly, for all of you who enjoyed those animatrons in the King Arthur museum, this website might whet your appetite for knowledge ;):
