Archaeologists unearth royal secrets of Tintagel Castle’s king
King Arthur and his knights may – or may not – have lived at Tintagel but archaeologists have uncovered evidence that whoever occupied the legendary castle on the North Cornwall coast did live like a king.
Excavations have revealed that the inhabitants feasted on a diet of oysters, roast pork and fine wine, dining and drinking from bowls imported from Turkey and glass goblets from Spain.
As archaeologists returned to Tintagel to continue their investigations today, English Heritage revealed the finds uncovered in last year’s dig by the Cornwall Archaeological Unit.
