Tintagel Castle, a medieval ruin on the peninsula of Tintagel Island, county Cornwall, southwestern England. These steep steps lead from the Atlantic Ocean to the medieval fortification famously connected with the Arthurian legends. An early Brythonic king may have had a residence on this spot circa 400-800. Today’s castle was built by Richard, Earl of Cornwall, in the 13th century; and is now a leading tourist attraction.  

   I think the Arthurian legend is fascinating and deserves its own post; so I’ll add that to my subjects for English Trifles. (the informative 'Read More' posts that you may or may not actually read.) **image by Sandra O’Callaghan on flickr**for Anonymous, who asked:) Requests are always honoured. I live to serve here.
