Glastonbury occupies a unique place in English folklore. It was here that Christ's great-uncle, Joseph of Arimathea, is said to have brought the Holy Grail, and where his staff took root to become the Holy Thorn. Illustrated with 32 pages of colour plates, this fascinating book explores the Glastonbury myth from medieval to modern times, including the legends of King Arthur, William Blake's 'Jerusalem', and its present role as a focus of New Age culture.
