Glastonbury is a familiar name to many. However, its fame lies not simply in its renowned music festival, but in its legendary associations with King Arthur and Joseph of Arimatehea, whose staff was supposed to have grown into the Glastonbury Thorn. In this comprehensive survey, Philip Rahtz and Lorna Watts use Glastonbury's rich archaeological evidence provided by the lake villages, prehistoric tracks, Abbey and Tor to explain how myth and history are woven together, and attempt to disentangle legend from truth. In this edition, Bob Croft, Somerset County Archaeologist, has sensitively updated and reillustrated Philip Rahtz's original text providing a valuable contemporary guide for both historian and visitor.
