But wherever she went, myths sprang up behind her. She is honoured in Germany and Israel and Rome, where . His ears strained to catch any sound that might come from the dwelling of the High Priestess on the slopes below. Since dawn she had been in labour. She is honoured in Germany and Israel and Rome, where she is hailed as a saint in the churches that bear her name. Medieval hagiography makes her the great discoverer of relics, who brought the heads of the three Wise Men to Cologne, the Robe Jesus wore to Trier, and the True Cross to Rome. But she holds a special place in the legends of Britian, where it is said that she was a British princess who married an emperor.

Avalon is probably the most thorough study of Glastonbury, from the very beginning of its history to modern times

Avalon is probably the most thorough study of Glastonbury, from the very beginning of its history to modern times.

According to the original legend, Avalon was an island full of wild apple trees, grapevines, and grain plants - which grew there instead of wild plants. Glastonbury became associated with the Arthurian legends when, in 1190 AD, the monks claimed that they had found the tomb of King Arthur and his wife Guinevere, as well as a cross carving which identified the tomb as such. And we have a myth in Cornwall According to Cornish legend King Arthur did not die after his last battle but rather his soul migrated into the body of a red-billed chough, the red colour of its bill and legs being derived from the blood of the last battle and hence killing this bird was unlucky.
