The remains of a royal palace dating back to the sixth century CE, located at the fabled birthplace of King Arthur, have recently been uncovered by the Cornwall Archaeological Unit (CAU).

Cornwall’s Tintagel, a thirteenth century castle, has long been associated with the Arthurian legend.

It is purportedly the site of Arthur’s conception and birth, as the fabled story goes that Uther Pendragon infiltrated the castle to bed Lady Igraine, the Duke of Cornwall’s wife and Arthur’s mother.

The wizard Merlin is said to have used his magic to disguise Uther as the Duke.

Archaeological digs have been ongoing at Tintagel as part of an English Heritage research project in order to discover the site’s roots, specifically from the fifth to the seventh centuries.

The new discovery, a series of one-meter thick walls dating to the sixth century, are thought to have been part of a palace that was once part of Dumnonia, an ancient kingdom in the south-west of England.
