Did they just find Camelot?

Seen today:
"Archaeologists working at the site of a planned housing development in Britain have unearthed a mysterious medieval mansion that, according to historical records of the time period, never existed."|main5|dl2|sec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D350441

Color me fanciful, but the mention (and sight) of a tile showing a white knight on horseback with his lance, and a mention of Glastonbury, and the fact that this mansion appears never to have had its existence recorded leads me to wonder whether this was Camelot.

I am sure others have wondered, in fact, a belated glance through the Comments shows that many have wondered, and many have been rebuffed by the buffs.

Persons more scholarly than I believe that Camelot ought to be in Wales, rather than Somerset, and that Camelot would have been a few hundred years older than this site.

All the same, this is grist for the fiction mill. A paranormal story could be written with a similar premise, and an excavation closer to Glamorgan.
