Lorien Howell - DDA and the case of the missing century - new cover concept and Place-Names of Wales
Additionally, I'm going to take the opportunity to share with you a rather interesting text from 1881 called The Place-Names of Wales by Thos Morgan.
"Happy is he who knows the origin of things."
Is the opening dedication, and essentially The Place-names of Wales is about the tacit (or intentional) erosion of our 562 AD comet-ruined Britishness and the northerly easeterly pressure upon the true British language and people from successively incursion of Frisians and Norwegians.
Yes, 1881 and yes this is still a children's book.
Considering the rapid strides of English education in the Principality, we fear the time is not far distant when a moiety of our mutilated Welsh place-names will be nothing less than a series of enigmatical problems.
And of course this has already happened, we have already been stripped of our Real British Heritage by the invading elites who would like us to believe we're part-Roman or part-Norman or part-American...and I final-quote from the :
If the reader will be so fortunate as to find a map of England which was published in the time of Ella, the first Bretwalda of the Saxon race, the recurrent Caer would make him almost imagine he was perusing the map of Wales. There he would find Caer -legion, Chester, which is still called Caerlleon; Caer-Badon, Bath; Caer-Glou, Gloucester; Caer-Ebrawc, Eboracum of the Romans, and the Saxon York; and Caer-Lundene or Caerludd, London, &c. In course of time the vowel e was elided, hence we have such examples as Carmarthen, Cardiff, Carlisle, Carsey, Carsop, Pencarrow (Pencaerau), Carew, &c.
SYNCHRONISTIC MOMENTS R US: so, there I was, continuing to read (and thoroughly enjoy) the above text from 1881 dealing with the ancient place-names of the Khumric people... and I random-graze onto a youtube video dealing with the discovery of one of the later Etruscan principalities.
The video (below) opens, "Eighteen eighty-one..." you really can't make this stuff up. :)
ETRURIAN ORIGINS: Round shields, round houses, look like Khumric or British bronze-iron agers to me... fighting naked is (also) a Pictish trait.
