It's black-and-white because that's what the inside of the book will be. I wasn't planning on having any photos in the book. But I think I might just get away with a couple of illustrations artfully inserted into the text.
And, hey, it is The Grave after all.
Try to imagine it with a circle of stones on the summit, which is what it was like up until the eighteenth century. Or with a great bonfire burning away on its crest on Beltane eve. Or with "sweet music" emanating mysteriously from inside it, as some have reported. Or during a total eclipse of the sun - which is what happened at the moment when Arthur's head was laid to rest inside it.
And then tell me I shouldn't sneak this picture into the book.
