New Discovery Adds to Tintagel’s Arthurian Connection

Thursday, July 5, 2018

Tintagel has long been described as the birthplace of King Arthur, inspired by the writings of Geoffrey of Monmouth in the twelfth century. The dramatic cliff-side location, a short drive north of Port Isaac, attracts numerous tourists wishing to visit the castle remains and absorb the sense of history.

Now a new discovery by archaeologists working at Tintagel, and reported in the Cornish Guardian, has provided evidence to support the idea that Tintagel truly was a centre of learning and importance around the seventh century when Arthur may have lived.

A stone inscription in Latin and Greek alongside Christian symbols may suggest that the area had cultural status and connections with the continent, all encouraging the notion that it may have been a royal seat.
