  46. 46. Anthony Roberts in 1968. A year later he would have the most important experience of his life.
  47. 47. ‘While driving with my wife one evening during the Autumn of 1969, we were shown both a vision and a sign in the sky. ---- It was not quite dark, the air was very clear, and there was as yet no trace of the moon. At the same time both my wife and I saw a huge, white disc shining in the sky in the middle distance ahead of us.
  48. 48. It was about the size of a very large grapefruit and as we slowed down to watch, its colour changed slightly to silvery gold with faint tinges of orange fire playing around the extreme edges. We slowed our car still more, and as we watched we saw a string of small, glowing discs appear on the left hand side of the larger one; they flickered and twinkled with a pearly and opalescent glow, faintly mauve and very beautiful. After lining up in a perfectly straight formation, they gradually merged one by one into the larger disc.
  49. 49. The previously unpublished full account of this experience is featured in The Glastonbury Zodiac and Earth Mysteries UFOlogy.
  50. 50. Tony Roberts went on to write a huge manuscript full of lost continents, ancient astronauts, and the Glastonbury Zodiac.

  53. 53. This book also owed much to the original mother-lode. Most of Giants in the Earth remains unpublished.
  54. 54. If Giants in the Earth had been published in the early seventies, it would have sat alongside a large number of ancient astronaut works and made the link between Glastonbury and UFO mythology far stronger.
  55. 55. The anthology Glastonbury: Ancient Avalon, New Jerusalem does not deal with UFOlogy but would probably never have existed without editor Tony Roberts 1969 experience. Initially published in 1976, the 1977 edition, featuring an Afterword by Colin Wilson is better known. It marked the peak of acceptance of the idea of the Glastonbury Zodiac.
  56. 56. 1976 edition. 1977 edition
  57. 57. 1977 was a damn strange year in Britain. Remembered in popular culture for punk rock, there were a lot of echoes of 1967 flowing through it as well. The two years shared an above-average number of UFO reports and it seems in retrospect that there was almost a final flourishing of books and artefacts of popular culture that carried the sixties inspiration.
  58. 58. ‘In seventy-seven the light shone from our hearts and from our eyes. We looked into the ethers and we saw that they were very much alive. The saucers were teaching us to find a higher energy To put a twinkle in our mind's eye, so we can rise and be all that we can be.’
  59. 59. ‘The revolutionary revival of Albion’s true spirit will be the precursor of a New Age and that apocalyptic revival will spring from the eternally universal fountain head that is Glastonbury. The Day draws nearer’. Anthony Roberts. Glastonbury: Ancient Avalon, New Jerusalem.
  60. 60. During the late seventies, paranoia spread through UFOlogy, leaving many convinced that the phenomenon was evil.
  61. 61. The 1980 Dark Gods was a paranoid classic, finding demonic influence in almost the entire field of occultism, Earth Mysteries, and UFOlogy. Its mood was considerably different to Tony Roberts’ earlier work.
  62. 62. Ley lines and landscape zodiacs were getting quite a bashing in the eighties as well. Many of the criticisms were justified.
  63. 63. Robert Coon publicised his Earth Chakra ideas and believed that the Global Omega Point was activated at Glastonbury in 1984.
  64. 64. Andrew Collins unprecedented Glastonbury psychic quest between 1983-85 brought together medieval knights, sacred geometry, and a connection to Egypt, and, in particular, the Giza plateau and the mystery of what may lie beneath it.
  65. 65. A painting by psychic Bernard G depicting some of the medieval material in the Temple of the Stars psychic quest.
  66. 66. Andrew Collins psychic assault course experience in the Glastonbury Temple of the Stars would lead him to his astonishing adventures on the Giza plateau.
  67. 67. Andrew Collins Glastonbury Giza quest is featured in The Glastonbury Zodiac and Earth Mysteries UFOlogy. The fullest account so far in print is in Avalonian Aeon, which includes the authors own experiences with the same material.
