Rare find proves Tintagel was a royal seat?
A 1,300 year old piece of slate is now on display at Tintagel Castle.
The slate is a rare archaeological find as it is inscribed with a combination of Latin letters and Christian symbols, adding weight to the theory that Tintagel was a royal seat. Bizarrely it was being used as a window ledge! Read all about it in the full BBC news story.
Tintagel is only 55 miles away and makes for a great day out whilst staying at our Dartmoor holiday home. We like to combine it with a morning of Dragon Archery (one of our top 10 holiday must do’s), lunch in Boscastle and dinner at Port Isaac (home of Doc Martin) – it’s doable thanks to the great location of Three Pound Cottage.
