Avalon is perhaps the most recent lost land, thought to exist on the continents of the UK, Ireland and parts of Europe. It is said that Avalon is the place where King Arthur was taken after being deeply wounded in battle. Some believe it was a physical place, others believe it to be a mystical place of healing and others believe that it still exists in the “otherworld” today.
Avalon was mentioned and popularised in Geoffrey of Monmouth’s History of the Kings of Britain (1100–1154), which, while it is a work of fiction, is believed to be based on Celtic folktales and Authurian legends. It was popularized more recently with Marion Zimmer Bradley’s book The Mists of Avalon.
Often referred to as “the isle of Avalon”, some sources say that Avalon exists off the coast of Great Britain, or “across the sea”. Many believe that the town of Glastonbury in Somerset, England is one of the locations of where Avalon existed with other communities also existing in Cornwall, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Arran, an island off the coast of Scotland, has also been considered a possible model for Avalon. And if you visit the UK’s Glastonbury today, you will read “Welcome to Glastonbury, the ancient Isle of Avalon”.
When you approach Glastonbury you can see the Glastonbury Tor from a great distance. The Tor is a significant hill where the Mary and Michael leylines meet and is sometimes referred to as the heart chakra of the planet. Many travelers report that they can feel the special energy of this land… as if Avalon still exists in the “otherworld” on this site today.
It is believed that Avalon was a Mother God civilization where all were in service to the Great Mother. Worshiping the earth and her seasons, much of the Avalonian tradition can be seen in the Celtic and druid lineages and traditions today.
