Made in western Turkey and dating from the 5th or 6th centuries , experts say it is the fragment of a bowl or a large dish which may have been used for sharing food during feasting.

Win Scutt, English Heritage’s properties curator for the West, said: “This is the most significant archaeological project at Tintagel since the 1990s.

“The three-week dig is the first step in a five year research programme to answer some key questions about Tintagel and Cornwall’s past.

“The discovery of high-status buildings – potentially a royal palace complex – at Tintagel is transforming our understanding of the site.

"We’re cutting a small window into the site’s history, to guide wider excavations next year. We’ll also be gathering samples for analysis. It’s when these samples are studied in the laboratory that the fun really starts, and we’ll begin to unearth Tintagel’s secrets.”
