The Glastonbury Legends. In the popular imagination, the story of King Arthur is inextricably bound up with the ancient town of Glastonbury in the Somerset Levels. Accordingly, at first sight, the idea that he might actually have been Welsh and a King of Glamorgan seems ludicrous. The Glastonbury Festival is responsible for creating more myths and legends than almost any other event on the planet. Since , a combination of ley line energy, cheap Somerset cider, loud music and mind-altering drugs have fostered an aura around Worthy Farm that seems to nourish the creation of rumour, gossip and : Tangent Books.

Author of books on ancient civilizations and supernatural folklore. Joseph of Arimathea – a Glastonbury Legend. The town of Glastonbury stands on a peninsula in the Somerset Levels, an area of wetlands, 31 miles south of Bristol in south-west England. The area is dominated by the steep, conical Tor, a prominent landmark rising island-like. Perhaps his strangest explanation is the man-eating stone of Glastonbury Mountain. Making its first appearance in Citro’s book The Vermont Monster Guide (), the man-eating stone is exactly what it sounds like a rock that eats people. “No one alive has seen this dangerous anomaly on Glastonbury Mountain.

First published in , this book presents a concise examination of the historic context underlying ancient traditions connecting Joseph of Arimathea and King Arthur with the Abbey of Glastonbury. Illustrative figures are included and notes are incorporated throughout. This book will be of value. Glastonbury 50 is the authorised, behind-the-scenes, inside story of the music festival that has become a true global phenomenon.. The story begins in The day after Jimi Hendrix's death dairy farmer Michael Eavis invites revellers to his field in Somerset to attend a 'Pop, Folk & Blues' festival.

Some legends have it that Joseph buried the Grail at the foot of Glastonbury Tor, whereupon a spring of blood gushed forth from the ground. There is a well at the base of the Tor, Chalice Well, and the water that issues from it does indeed have a reddish tinge to it.

Joseph and Glastonbury’s Old Church. It was in the Middle Ages that Joseph became associated with Glastonbury Abbey. After King Arthur’s tomb was found, the monks wrote Joseph of Arimathea into their history.
