Alongside the major attractions like Pendennis Castle, Cornwall is home to hundreds of English Heritage sites, many of which are free to visit and little-known but vitally important to our history.
Among the 382 places listed on its site in Cornwall there are ironage settlements, mysterious Celtic stones and stone circles, Neolithic burial chambers and ancient village settlements long since abandoned.
You can become part of history with the current Sign a Slate campaign at Tintagel Castle. For a fiver you can sign your name, leave a dedication, or write a message on one of the thousands of slate tiles which will form the walkway of the spectacular new bridge linking the mainland and island.
