A mysterious inscription from the 7th-century A.D. has been discovered in the ruins of an English castle associated with the legend of King Arthur…

But most of the other 'historical' Arthurian evidence suggests our hero flourished somewhere in what is now Northern England/Southern Scotland. -Miles away from Tintagel

Does it have a grail-shaped beacon?

On point of order, aside from the article mentioning that Tintagel is associated with the legend of King Arthur (his birthplace in Mallory), no one is asserting the discovery has anything to do with Arthur. It's merely a coincidental connection, added for "click bait" interest purposes. (The average reader could care less about a minor monestary on the Cornish coast, but if Arthur is involved, all sorts of Internet hoppers will settle on the page and see the ads…us among them!)

Of course, as a side observation, Arthur's area of operations as an adult could be miles away from where he was born. Julius Caesar is famous for mucking about in France, Britain, and Egypt, which are hundreds of leagues from Rome (and each other)!

I said 'flourished' not 'born'. But, Parzival, you have to be on the literary side of the Arthur story?
