  1. I have just discovered your blog and am intrigued by your subject. I imagine your information finds a revered place in the hearts of we who love the Arthurian age. I am looking forward to reading your articles.

  2. I am delighted you like what I’ve been doing. If you have any requests please let me know. Another person has requested something a little more mythological so that is the plan for a bit (that is, until I get a few more Arthurian requests).

  3. I loved this and I reblogged it. Wonderful to get a piece of the mystery answered but also great to have a bit more of the mystery remaining. Enough, at least, to keep my hungry for more! I’ve been in love with mythology since I first read a book of Arthurian legends when I was 8 and followed it up with Bullfinch the following year. I’ve been reading everything mythological since … and now, there is you.

  4. Oops. I’m on the wrong page!
