Tintagel is a
civil parish and village situated on the Atlantic coast of Cornwall,
England, United Kingdom. The population of the parish is 1,820
people, and the area of the parish is 4,281 acres (17.32 km2).
The village and nearby
Tintagel Castle are associated with the legends surrounding King
Arthur and the knights of the Round Table. The village has, in
recent times, become attractive to day-trippers, and tourists from
many parts of the world, and is one of the most-visited places in
Toponymists have had
difficulty explaining the origin of 'Tintagel': the probability is
that it is Norman French as the Cornish of the 13th century would
have lacked the soft 'g' ('i/j' in the earliest forms: see also
Tintagel Castle). If it is Cornish then 'Dun' would mean Fort.
Oliver Padel proposes 'Dun' '-tagell' meaning narrow place in his
book on place names. There is a possible cognate in the Channel
Islands named Tente d'Agel, but that still leaves the question
subject to doubt.
