Tintagel Head. Aerial photograph of Tintagel Head (left), an eroded headland on the north Atlantic Cornish coast. The settlement at left is the village of Tintagel. The headland is now almost an island, linked to the mainland only by a narrow ridge of rock. On the headland there are the remains of a castle dating from the 13th century, when it is thought that the Earl of Cornwall built the castle for propaganda purposes. The site is also associated with the mythic legend of King Arthur.
