Magic or myth?

The village of Tintagel in Cornwall has long been associated with myth and magic. This is after all where the legend of King Arthur and the knights of the round table originates. One legends says that the infant Arthur was thrown onto the beach at Tintagel and rescued by Merlin, beside whose cave Arthur landed.

Perhaps in a village where, if you keep your eyes open, Merlin may still be seen, a sword really could be pulled from a stone by magic, but only by a rightful king.

  1. Not how I imagined they looked, but close enough. 🙂 I love Mary Stewart’s books about Arthur as well as Rosemary Sutcliff’s. Now I may have to go dig them out and start re-reading. Thanks, Gilly.


  2. “Rightful king”? That poses questions. Who decides? And if it’s magic, what exactly is magic? And please. Can it be without bloodshed? (I’ve been watching too many Shakespeares!)

I would love to hear from you . . .
