IMG_20150728_113627

The Arthurian Centre is located in Camelford, Cornwall. It is an educational centre specialising in all details surrounding the history, myths and legends surrounding the story of King Arthur. The centre is situated on a large country estate that has the river Camel running through it. The area is partly fields and partly forests, and as visitors exist the Arthurian Centre, they are led on a 500m trail through the countryside to find the ancient Arthur Stone which has been dated to around 540CE by the Irish Ogham script found engraved upon it. Academics and researchers argue over what the inscription actually says – with some claiming it mentions the name of King Arthur being buried probably under the original placement of the stone. The general area itself is also thought to be where Arthur had his last battle (against his nephew Mordred) – a battle he won. However, although victorious, Arthur suffered a mortal injury and later died of his wounds. Arthur’s royal court of Camelot is believed to have been named after the River Camelot.  The Arthurian Centre is a truly wonderful place to visit:
