The Hereford Mappa Mundi is fairly fascinating, the animals etc are really interesting whilst the orientation of the map with Jerusalem in the centre and everything distorted to fit around it is very strange. I remember looking at it when I was at university and the lecturer talking about the way that medieval maps modified their view of the world to suit their beliefs, that they weren't necessarily meant to be literal interpretations (which explains the way the world is broken into a t-shape) but tied into various religious ideas and so on.

Did I mention I love maps? Maps, maps, maps!

I have run across this name & date a few times as to where a number of Welch Knights were killed. What's this all about?

Seconded, the Mappa Mundi in the care of Hereford Cathedral is a must see for anyone visiting the City.

Celts in Austria

I read where the Celts had been taken as slaves to what is Austria today. They've found ancient cave dwellings in the mountains around Austria. They migrated north to the coast at Normandy them over to England. Accordingly, making England Welch but given the name Britons by the Romans who could not conquer all of the island. At the time there were fare skinned and dark skinned Celts. They had divided up the island into separate kingdoms for century's. They had learned from the Austrians how to set up a 'feudal' system of ruling the land, leaving behind large mounds or hilltops. Building on the high ground to give the 'lords' a natural advantage to prevent surprise attacks. There always seemed to be a 'turf' war among the different tribes of Celts. But as recent finds have uncovered bounty from far away lands, proving their raiding other country's like the Vikings had done. Celtic history is very old pre Christian B.C., later incorporating pagan ritual with Christian ideals.
