Ahh, but don't forget that Glastonbury Abbey also boasts the mysterious
Glasteig Stone (recumbent outslide the Abbot's Kitchen, when last I saw
it) -- if ever there was a hint of pre-Christian sites it's the old
stones standing/recumbent - especially those with indented depressions
created, or complete through-holes.
The 12 Hides of Glastonbury are part of the broader puzzle of the old
legends/traditions/pre-literate history ...
Keep digging deeper and much more will emerge, including on the use of
the 'earth-currents'/telluric energies ...
