Interesting material [In reply to] Can't Post

He does have a nice voice that presenter, particularly when reading in the old texts. It's odd how all the Celtic, Saxon and Norse myths are quite similar. And how the first-generation christians had to make compromises in their beliefs. Not very subtle really, claiming that your god is the only god. What about all the other onesSmile Hope that Wotan didn't mind been relegated from been chief of the gods to a day of the week. A pretty mangy day of the week at that, Wednesday. Boring middle of the week day, what ever happens on a Wednesday, eh? Also it is interesting how people sometimes confuse the early English and the early Britons. They where not the same people at all, as Tolkien would agree, I expect.
