After "metal king" Joseph of Arimathea donated his grave for a hated convict, he found a dangerous enemy in Saul of the Jewish 'Gestapo'. Cast adrift in a boat, Joseph survived to do the very thing Saul had hoped to stop. Then in a distant land, the two enemies came face to face! In the background to this true, amazing story, we discover that Julius Caesar did not conquer uncivilized Britons, that Romans did not build those "Roman roads" and that Druids did not practise human sacrifice.
“The body of St. Joseph, whose burial at the wattle church of St. Mary was recorded by Maelgwyn of Avalon, writing about AD 450, lay
undisturbed till the year 1345, when Edward III gave his licence to John Bloom of London to dig for the body if the Abbot and monks permitted, and just as the discovery of the bones of King Arthur at Glastonbury in 1190 were recorded in far-away Essex by the monk Ralph de Coggeshall, so in a far-away monastery in 1367 we find a monk recording that ‘the bodies of Joseph of Arimathea and his companions were found at Glastonbury’.
“The remains of St. Joseph were put in a silver casket which could be raised at will from a stone sarcrophagus, the base of a shrine to which the frequent pilgrimage was made. This stone altar tomb, the base of the shrine, like the Holy Thorn, survived the Reformation.” (Lionel Smithett Lewis, St.Joseph of Arimathea at Glastonbury, p.151)
