In my Book of Centuries...
The Stone of Scone (skun) also known as the Stone of Destiny--Scottish coronation stone captured by Edward I in 1296 and mentioned in MacBeth, "The Stone of Destiny," and "The King's Speech."

Oh! We are reading Macbeth at school! I can't wait to show the students this picture!

This is so neat! I watched a performance of Macbeth a year or two ago (my brother was in it) and I don't recall any references to the The Stone, but I hadn't heard of it at that point either. My kids and I watched Stone of Destiny a while back and they will love to see a photo of the actual stone. They are quite proud of their own Scottish heritage and properly outraged by the misuse of The Stone :)
