Picture Day Friday: Glastonbury Tor or Avalon?

Glastonbury Tor is a hill in Glastonbury in the Somerset countryside of England. Artefacts found on the hill date it back to at least the Iron Age. The deeply terraced slopes of the hill are topped by a now roofless St. Michael's Tower built in the 14th century. There's evidence of building on the summit from the 5th century. The Tor is mentioned in Celtic mythology and there are numerous myths about it being significant to Arthur and Avalon.
