News from Tintagel

A royal palace discovered by archaeologists dates to the era when Arthur is supposed to have been born there. Roman pottery and other finds support the dating.

If you're not interested in archaeology, though, you may still want to click through to see the new statue of Arthur. It's artistically interesting.

That is an interesting statue, for an interesting commission- after all, how do you make a sculpture of a person about whom we know so little in some ways and so much in others? I think the work shows a humility from the artist that is refreshing- he's admitting that he cannot know really what to put and that our knowledge of the subject of the work is largely unknown. Arthur is, for us, a work in progress.
