Artist's Description

The alleged site of the king of the fairies Gwyn ap Nudd. The Tor came to be represented as an entrance to Annwn or Avalon, the land of the fairies. Glastonbury Tor is one of the possible locations of the Holy Grail. This is because it is close to the location of the monastery that housed the Nanteos Cup. The Tor has been associated with the name Avalon, and identified, since the alleged discovery of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere’s neatly labelled coffins in 1191, with the legendary hero King Arthur. Modern archaeology has revealed a fort, dated to the 5th century.

FEATURED April 2010 in Religious Architecture
