We are informed that the carving is part of an ongoing process of "re-imagining" and "re-interpretation" of Tintagel.
I dare not think what Richard Wilson (who played Gaius in the imaginative BBC series "Merlin") would say.
English Heritage have commissioned this, what? Don't they ask people to vote or summat? Or maybe they did. Surely Tintagel does well enough for tourist cash. I'm not refraining tjj, to me it's bloody ridiculous:)
"On 1 April 2015, English Heritage was divided into two parts: Historic England, which inherited the statutory and protection functions of the old organisation, and the new English Heritage Trust, a charity that would operate the historic properties, and which took on the English Heritage operating name and logo. The British government gave the new charity an £80 million grant to help establish it as an independent trust, although the historic properties remained in the ownership of the state."
