'This is the most significant archaeological project at Tintagel since the 1990s' said English Heritage's Properties Curator for the West, Win Scutt. 'The three week dig this summer is the first step in a five year research programme to answer some key questions about Tintagel'
Archaeologists have discovered the impressive remains of a probable Dark Age royal palace at #Tintagel in #Cornwall. It is likely that the one-metre thick walls being unearthed are those of the main residence of the 6th century rulers of an ancient south-west Briton kingdom, known as Dumnonia.
