Le Fay Series - UK Research Travel: Merlin's Cave

Do you remember the scene in Henge where Merlin takes Morgan to a seaside cave? It was inspired by a real place: Merlin's Cave by Tintagel Castle. Legends say that Merlin lived inside the cave. I love the imagery of it. It seems to suit him--the mystery and seclusion. I decided to use the cave scene to show readers a glimpse into the darker more mysterious side of Merlin. It ended up being the perfect setting for his character work.
