|Glastonbury, Lady Chapel|
Our Sunday morning excursion took us back to Medieval times. We went to Glastonbury to see the ruins of the cathedral (which was destroyed when Henry VIII dissolved the monasteries) and is the supposed site of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere’s grave. There is some speculation that the “discovery” here of the grave was a 12th century publicity stunt after much of the original church was destroyed by fire. The monks were hard up and needed to attract pilgrims to the church in order to get more money.

English Heritage: When we arrived in England, I became a member of English Heritage which meant that I could get in free to Stonehenge and other English Heritage historic sites. Since ticket prices can add up, it turned out to be a good investment.
