Glastonbury abbey

Glastonbury abbey  - glastonbury, king arthur and his guinn
Flag This WallpaperAdd to FavoritesEnlarge Wallpaper
Wallpaper Description:
this is the ruins of Gladtonbury abby, the place in which is to be belived to have hold the grave of king Arthur & Guinevere. The Tradition: Early stories tell us that Arthur was taken to the Isle of Avalon to be healed of his wounds after the Battle of Camlann. Late tradition assumes that he died and was buried there, though earlier sources indicate the whereabouts of his grave to be unknown. Hence his lying under a mysterious hill waiting to return and lead his people to victory. Avalon is traditionally identified as Glastonbury and Arthur is thus assumed to have been buried at the ancient Abbey there. This was an eminently suitable spot for the last resting-place of the High-King: the most holy place in Britain, for Glastonbury's Vetusta Ecclesia or "Old Church" is said to have been founded by St. Joseph of Arimathea himself. Ancient Discoveries & Propaganda: Unfortunately, the identification of Glastonbury with Avalon immediately follows the miraculous events of 1190. In this year, the monks of Glastonbury claimed to have discovered the bodies of both King Arthur and Queen Guinevere between two "pyramids" in their ancient cemetery near the Lady Chapel. They were excavating the area on information passed to King Henry II by "an ancient Welsh bard", after a disastrous fire made the discovery of pilgrim-attracting relics a top priority. The Norman Kings, moreover, were concerned about the prospect of a Welsh rebellion, and were eager to prove that King Arthur was certainly dead and would not return to lead it. As proof of the bodies' identification, the monks produced a convenient leaden cross found above the grave, recording (according to Giraldus Cambrensis) "Here lies buried the renowned King Arthur with Guinevere his second wife, in the Isle of Avalon".
