'Tor' is an ancient Celtic word meaning 'hill' or 'rocky outcrop' and archaeological evidence has shown that Glastonbury Tor has been intermittently occupied since Neolithic times. The ruined St Michael's tower, which dominates the hill top today, is all that remains of a church built in the 1360's. The Tor is famous because of this tower and its striking location. But most importantly it is connected to a variety of myths and legends - especially those involving King Arthur, the Holy Grail and the Glastonbury Zodiac. The Tor is also the point at which important 'ley lines' are said to meet and entwine, following the ancient terraces cut into the hillside. A variety of natural springs arise in the Tor area, including the red and white springs featured in 'The Salamander Stone'.
