    Great Resource Book

    I found this to be a really great resource book for anyone interested in Avalon, geomantic mysteries, and mythoarchaeology. The book does not contain any spiritual practices, but does an excellent job putting the sacred site of Glastonbury in context for Seekers from many paths. Excellent addition to one's library!

    Excellent historical and mythological reference!

    Nicholas Mann captures the spirit of Avalon through the combined lenses of history, archeology, mythology and comparative spirituality rarely found in comparable texts. A must-own for anyone interested in Glastonbury, the Arthurian Mythos, spiritual history in sacred Britain, sacred geomety and geomancy. Mann brings a critical yet intuitively insightful perspective to all of the above. Well worth reading more than once!
