Recent work on the collections for Tintagel Castle has focussed on the large number of slate amphorae stoppers dating to the 5th – 6th century recovered from the site. Made at Tintagel of the local slate, these stone discs indicate the reuse of wine amphorae imported from the eastern Mediterranean on a considerable scale, probably as containers for the storage of an alcoholic drink other than wine.
