Legends of Glastonbury

Well, that's not something you want to put out about an ancient burial ground that might have held one of the most famous people in the history of the world... King Arthur.

New evidence from digs at Glastonbury questions some long held beliefs, most notably, that of the burial place of King Arthur. The monks who dwelt there centuries ago spoke of their most cherished King's grave being in, at or near Glastonbury. Future digs seemed to support this so that it became part of the historical culture of the landmark.

Well, until now that is. The Guardian.

 Seems that all may not be as it seems, however, the expedition leader had this to say: "A thousand years of beliefs and legends are part of the intangible history of this remarkable place.” Which is of course, all we ever want from such things.

Post Script: Anyway, wasn't King Arthur taken to Avalon after he died?
