A bit of a round-up of a few interesting stories that I saw over the last week or so.
First, some Gaulish graves in France have been found which may have some major light to shed on Gaulish culture. And, if I have understood the article there correctly (and it may be a mistake on their part, but let’s assume it isn’t!), it seems one of the potential warriors found in this series of burials was a woman! Hurrah for that!
At Albion Calling, Ethan Doyle White interviews Dr. Christine Hoff Kraemer on subjects ranging from pagan theology to Alan Moore. Fun stuff!
At Letter from Hardscrabble Creek, Chas Clifton gives a video of conjectured Roman music, which I have to admit is far more boring than I had hoped it would be. Prof. Clifton’s remarks on the music of drunken peasants being played by anorexic grad students are points well taken, though…!
Over at Shadows of the Sun, Warboar writes about the god Heryshaf, who (as avid readers of this blog may realize) came up in a recent poem of mine. My instincts about Heryshaf have proven, according to Warboar’s research, to have been rather more accurate and insightful than I expected!
And, as a final thought for the moment (and I think Sannion alerted me to the presence of this article via one of his own recent round-up posts), anxious much? Apparently, it’s even worse if you’re an academic (like me)…but, make of that what you will.
