Frederick Pohl gives a full description of the [[Westford Knight]], quoting [[Thomas Charles Lethbridge]], "curator of the University Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology", [[University of Cambridge]], [[United Kingdom|UK]], as stating that the sword portrayed in the carving is a "large, hand-and-a-half wheel pommel sword" of 14th-century type. Based on a drawing sent to him, Lethbridge also stated that the armour and coat of arms were those of a 14th-century knight, North Scottish, and "kin to the first Sinclair Earl of Orkney".ref== Alternative histories ==
In the 1980s, modern alternative histories of Earl Henry I Sinclair and Rosslyn Chapel began to be published. Popular books (often derided as pseudo-history) such as [[The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail]] by [[Michael Baigent]], and [[Henry Lincoln]] (1982) and The Temple and the Lodge by Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh (1989) appeared. Books by Timothy Wallace-Murphy and Andrew Sinclair soon followed from the early 1990s onwards.
