This new issue of Celtic Connections magazine contains more fascinating and informative information that you will be hard-pressed to find elsewhere!

Articles include ‘Viridius and The green Man’, describing the recent excavation on a Romano-British site of a carved stone dedicated to the Roman god Viridius, and the latter’s relationship to The Green Man of Celtic mythology. There is an excellent article on ‘Balance Within the Celtic World’, integrating the Yin-Yang principle wisely and sensibly into the Celtic tradition. Iron Age news includes the recent discovery of what may be the largest Iron Age hill fort yet found in Britain, in Yorkshire.

 

There is a fascinating article on the bronze Coligny Calendar – the earliest known European druidic calendar discovered in France and dating from the 1st century AD, and a fabulous modern reproduction on paper that has been created by a group of artists and historians.

 

 A long overdue article with hitherto unpublished material is included about the pioneering archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans (discoverer of Minoan Crete) and his excavation in 1886 of an Iron Age site of the 1st century BC at Aylsford, near Maidstone in Kent, which revolutionised the existing beliefs in the academic world about the British Celts, and paved the way for the knowledge we have today.

 

Also there are details of the fabulous 2002 Birmingham International Celtic Art Exhibition, which is the largest of its kind ever to have taken place in the UK. It incorporates artists from USA, Canada, Ireland, Spain, Scotland, England and more diverse locations. The illustration shown at the top of the page is the beautiful poster for the exhibition (April/June 2002) painted by the very talented Asturian artist Vitor Gonzalez.

All this plus music and book reviews and more when you subscribe to the magazine.

 

Slainte, and a Happy Summer Solstice to everyone!

David.
