Solid introduction to Glastonbury, its history and it's part in the legends and myths of King Arthur. A healthy skepticism marred only by Ashe's quixotic theory that the Tor's sandstone terraces are some sort of pagan maze. His identification of Arthur with Riothamus is interesting; but apart from one or two points which he claims have similarities to the Arthurian story as it evolved (Riothamus disappeared 'near' the French town of Avalon for example), it is not convincing.

An interesting, scholarly take on the legend and possible truth of King Arthur. Covers the stories, archaeology, development and origins of the legends, etc. Broken up into several essays about different topics. Out of date, but a nice foundation for where the legend came from, as well as a snapshot of how archaeology and historiography work.

Atlantis, the island-continent that vanished under the sea, is one of the most haunting themes of legend.
Described by Plato more than two thousand years ago, it is, seemingly, a philosophic myth; yet one
recounted with a magnificence and a wealth of detail which have convinced many that it must have had
some reality. Prehistorians have seen Atlantis as the fountain-head of all civilization; mystics have had
revelations about it; archaeologists have claimed to locate it - sometimes in surprising places. But one fact
little realized is that Plato's genius indirectly created a different myth from that which he
intended - a unique case history in the workings of the human spirit as
it searches for origins and the dawn of wisdom.
