Tintagel Castle, Cornwall, 1998. New excavations on the eastern side of the island uncovered high-status imported Mediterranean pottery of the 5th and 6th centuries, along with some fine glass believed to be from Malaga in Spain and dating back to the 6th or 7th century.
Even more incredible was the discovery of an ancient 1,500 year old peice of slate, on which were two latin inscriptions, with the second one reading:
"Artognou, father of a descendant of Coll, has had (this) made."
Nobody knows who Artognou was, so that opens a new mystery for this enchanting and special ancient place.
