Kings capture our imagination. Out of the mists of time, the story of King Arthur continues to haunt. Was he a real person? Did Mallory in Le Morte D’Arthur capture an ideal that might have been possible? Perhaps, buried deep in our psyche is a longing for the camaraderie of a band of brothers, as well as a noble strong leader who will save us in desperate times. Excavations at Tintagel point to some tantalizing clues. Maybe there is more to the myth.
