In the shadowy area where myth and history collide
Back in early 2013, I was taking a walk and thinking about myth, legend (not the same thing!) and history. Don’t we all do that? Anyway, I had a little “aha” moment. Several things just seemed to gel and it all made perfect sense. Well, at least it did while I was still walking and not researching.
I don’t remember exactly what my thought process was, but I know I was thinking about some variation of the Cauldron of Resurrection (most likely the Gundestrup Cauldron), naked Celts, blue Celts, the Celtic Expansion across Europe and the Arthurian Legends. You know, typical walk thinking material.
OK, I hear what you are saying: Arthur was so much later than those other things. What did he have in common with the other pre-Roman ideas?
Well, my brain, for one.
