Tintagel Castle Castles
On the mainland itself, the gaunt remains of the medieval castle represent only one phase in a long history of occupation. Even before Richard, Earl of Cornwall, built his castle, Tintagel had come to be associated with the conception of King Arthur.
The remains of the 13th-century castle are breathtaking. Steep stone steps, stout walls and rugged windswept cliff edges encircle the Great Hall, where Richard, Earl of Cornwall, once feasted.
Even more remarkable was a 1,500-year-old piece of slate on which remain two Latin inscriptions. The second inscription reads: 'Artognou, father of a descendant of Coll, has had [this] made. ' Who exactly Artognou was continues to be a subject for lively speculation. .
