Comment: Book is square and tight. Spine is straight, not curved or creased. Pages are clean and bright, with no markings. As good as New except for some shelf-wear: bottom edges of pages are lightly rubbed, and bottom corner of front cover is slightly bent (but not totally crimped or "dog-earred"). Original personal purchase from Glastonbury Abbey Shop; not a remainder, overstock or ex-lib.

Format: Paperback
The mystical Isle of Avalon, where the Lady of the Lake guards Excalibur and the evil Melwas keeps Guinevere a prisoner underneath the Tor; Nicholas Mann, historian and author, explores its legendary mysteries by examining the physical features of place in the context of its mythology, history, and religious significance. Mann is obviously enthralled with Glastonbury, and while he does a through and creditable job relating the factual evidence, he is also prone to conjecture. Goddesses and druids, magical springs and ley lines, dragons and labyrinths all have their place in this book. But the author generally differentiates clearly between what is known and what is imagined, and this book is recommended to anyone interested in Celtic mythology and ancient religions.

I read this book in preparation for a trip to England and a visit to Glastonbury. This is a well written and thoughtful book that gives the reader a very comprehensive history of the Glastonbury area. It's a nice balance of traditional science and alternative archaeology, and I felt that my experience when I visited was enhanced from having read this book first. I highly recommend that anyone planning a visit here read this book! Or, if you are interested in ancient British cultures and/or the Arthur legends or the book The Mists of Avalon, this will certainly interest you.

I have not yet finished this book, as it does take awhile to read. It is very informative and has a lot of intersting facts about this Avalon and Glastonbury; however, it can be difficult to read.
