Reconstruction illustrations

Interpretive reconstruction illustrations produced for an exhibition opened at Tintagel Castle, Cornwall in July 2015. These impressions depict scenes from three different periods in the castle's history: the castle's Great Hall, the chapel and earlier dark ages settlement.

Remains of the Great Hall
The present day ruins show the footprints of the Great Hall (c1260) and two buildings from later periods: a smaller hall (c1340) and a cottage (c1500) in the foreground. In the background just behind the kitchens, are the remains of the original curtain wall. The holes in the masonry are 'putlog holes' and were used for erecting timber scaffolding during the building of the wall. The relatively thin curtain walls suggest that these were for intended more for show than for defence.
