An ancient Norse myth describing a magical gem which could reveal the position of the sun when hidden behind clouds or even before dawn or after sunset, has been the subject of intrigue for many years.  But a team of scientists based at the University of Rennes in Brittany may have proven that the Icelandic tales describing a Viking ‘sunstone’ used to navigate the seas may not have been a fanciful story after all. In March 2013, the team of scientists announced that a unique crystal they studied for three years, which was found in the wreck of an Elizabethan ship sunk off the Channel Islands, may be the legendary Viking sunstone.  Their research concluded that shards of the crystal can indeed act as a remarkably precise navigational aid.  The crystal was found in the wreckag…

6,000-year-old forest rises from sea: Ancient oaks uncovered as storm washes beach away

6,000-year-old forest rises from sea: Ancient oaks uncovered as storm washes beach away EMERGING eerily from the sea, oak tree stumps hidden for thousands of years have been revealed by recent storms.
Gales stripped the sand from a beach at Borth in Ceredigion, West Wales, revealing the remains of a 6,000-year-old forest. A picture of the same spot taken before the storms shows a strip of pristine sand. The ancient oaks and pines date back to the Bronze Age.  They were discovered by Deanna Groom and Ross Cook from the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales. Miss Groom, a maritime archeologist said: "The site around Borth is one where if there’s a bad storm and it gets battered, you know there’s a good chance something will be uncovered as the peat gets washed away.   "It’s regularly monitored and that’s why we went to h…

 See more at:

The Danube Valley civilisation is one of the oldest civilisations known in Europe. It existed from between 5,500 and 3,500 BC in the Balkans and covered a vast area, in what is now Northern Greece to Slovakia (South to North), and Croatia to Romania (West to East). During the height of the Danube Valley civilisation, it played an important role in south-eastern Europe through the development of copper tools, a writing system, advanced architecture, including two storey houses, and the construction of furniture, such as chairs and tables, all of which occurred while most of Europe was in the middle of the Stone Age. They developed skills such as spinning, weaving, leather processing, clothes manufacturing, and manipulated wood, clay and stone and they invented the w…

Amateur discovers Roman-era German treasure linked to Wagnerian Nibelung legend

Amateur discovers Roman-era German treasure linked to Wagnerian Nibelung legend
A hobby archaeologist with a metal detector has discovered a trove of gold and silver in a German forest dating back to late Roman times, fuelling speculation that it could be the legendary Nibelung treasure which inspired composer Richard Wagner’s operatic “Ring Cycle”.
The haul from the western state of Rhineland Palatinate, which is worth about €1m, includes silver bowls, brooches and other jewellery from ceremonial robes, as well as small statues that would have adorned a grand chair, archaeologists say. “In terms of timing and geography, the find fits in with the epoch of the Nibelung legend,” Axel von Berg, the state’s chief archaeologist was quoted by German media as saying. “But we cannot say whether it actually belongs to the Nibelung treasure,” he said, adding …

The name Forsyth is first found in the Mythology of Odin. Balder, called "The Beautiful and Good," was the son of Odin and his wife, Frigge. He was worshiped as a beautiful, youthful warrior, whose wisdom and valor were as well known as his beauty and goodness. To Balder and his wife Nannie, was born a son, Forsite, "The Just."

footprints of the Gryphon(part 2)- from Scythia to Nordic Lands

footprints of the Gryphon(part 2)...from Scythia to Nordic Lands:

The First English and their ancient origins – a Scythian race? (Anglo-Saxons and Scythians were both Nordics and both spoke Indo-European tongues but I doubt if the Germanic tribes and Anglo-Saxons were descended directly from the Scythians, they were cousins K.S. Doig) 

The source stories of both the English and Scandinavian cultures claim that the Kings of both peoples originated from families which came out of ancient Black Sea/Macedonian tribes. Collectively they are known as the people of Allfather from the Middle Enclosure. The English stories claim descent from ancient Troy. The Scandinavians claim descent from the faraway south-eastern city of Asgaard, which no longer exists in fact or in the archaeological record. The Gauls Gallic tradition claims their descent from warrior tribes forced to wander landless out of the region of the Black Sea, through Europe, to the ends of the world... including the Britannic Isla…


Celtic Griffins:
An ancient creature embraced by many cultures, the Celtic animal griffin is a symbol of duality. Part eagle and half-part lion (depending on the region - even part serpent, horse or dog), the meaning of the griffin reflects is dual physical form by presenting a balance of both good and not so good qualities. The griffin's more likeable qualities include nobility, gentleness, and justice. Depicted on ancient stone tombs, griffins are the guardians and protectors of life, and remain loyal in their protection even in the afterlife. Griffins count nobility, vigilance, virtue and strength among their many positive attributes. The griffin is an incredibly strong symbol, and used only when the mightiest gods' attention needs to be captured, and reserved only when the need is greatest. Misused, or invoked for selfish reasons, the griffin brings about gluttony, vengeance…
