According to the Independent, archaeologists have discovered the remains of a probable Dark Ages royal palace at Tintagel in Cornwall, which might (emphasis on the "might") have a connection to the legendary figure of King Arthur. According to medieval historians, Arthur was conceived in the area as the result of an "illicit union" between a British king and the wife of a local ruler. There's no clear evidence of any connection to Arthurian legend, but the site appears to date from the 5th and 6th centuries AD—which would "theoretically fit well with the traditional legends of King Arthur, which placed him in precisely those centuries."
