The Legend tells how the wizard Merlin aided Uther Pendragon in changing Uther's appearance so that he could spend a night with the beautiful Ygerna at Tintagel Castle on the North Coast of Cornwall. ... That night Arthur was conceived and Tintagel remains famous as the king's birthplace.
Cornish sea- one of the most spectacular historic sites in Britain. Its association with King Arthur makes it also one of the most famous. But history stretches back centuries before the first tales of the legendary king. Site of Tintagel Castle has been inhabited at least since late Roman period, and a community flourished here in the 5th-7th centuries. In the 12th century Tintagel gained literary fame when Geoffrey of Monmouth named it as the place where King Arthur was conceived.
Through the Arched Door, Tintagel Castle- I'm trying to figure out how to put a mural on my big wall with some sort of doorway to something theme-  Maybe I can faux rock paint the whole wall and figure out what the scene should be.  uh  then find someone with some talent to paint it LOL
