The American University of Rome marks 50th anniversary with lecture series.
13 Feb. The American University of Rome presents Researching Tintagel, Dumnonia and King Arthur in post-Roman Britain, a lecture by archaeologist Jacqueline Nowakowski, at the Centro Studi Americani on 13 February at 18.00.
The talk will focus on the results of exciting archaeological discoveries on the peninsula of modern-day Cornwall, Devon and Somerset in south-west England which - during the Dark Ages - was the ancient kingdom of Dumnonia.
The headland also hosted a major coastal citadel at Tintagel in north Cornwall during the later Roman and post-Roman era, forging important links between the Dumnonian elites and the Mediterranean world.
Based on current archaeological research at Tintagel, the lecture will highlight new insights into the culturally-rich peninsula which since mediaeval times has been associated with the legendary enigmatic figure of King Arthur.
