The Mystic Avalon

The Mystic Avalon 

Glastonbury Tor stands tall through the mist and haze of an early winter morning,What is now known as Glastonbury was, in ancient times, called the Isle of Avalon. It was virtually an island, for it was completely surrounded by marshlands,
.Avalon is a legendary island featured in the Arthurian legend. It first appears in Geoffrey of Monmouth's 1136 pseudo-historical account Historia Regum Britanniae as the place where King Arthur's sword was pulled from the stone.. Wikipedia.

So there _is_ a historical basis for Avalon! Nice pic, Roger.
5 months ago.
Roger (Grisly) has replied to slgwv
Many thanks Steve, Glastonbury Tor is within the Somerset levels which is kept flood free by a complicated drainage system so it is easy to see why it once was an island in the middle of the wetlands,
Around 6,000 years ago, Neolithic people lived on the higher, dry ground around what is now Shapwick Heath, and built wooden trackways to cross what was reed swamp. The most important of these, the Sweet Track still exists on the reserve, preserved in the wet peat below.
