Heavens Within Earth

Sorcery is messy. Lot of times you see folks posting images of pristine altars where they have their work's going, and that's cool. However, I can't help but notice that these altars are regularly almost purely about symbol, with little in the way of materia. *Warning: There will be ranting.

They spoke related languages (or dialects) of the Sahaptin-Chinook branch of the Penutian linguistic stock and sharing many cultural traits. Their richly fertile territory lay in a great trough in the southern Cascade Range, some 100 miles (160 kilometres) long and 25 miles wide. During winter, when snowdrifts could reach six feet (two meters) or more, most village families lived in semi-subterranean, earth-covered lodges, usually one family to a lodge.

In summer the usual dwelling was either a domed house of poles and matting or a lean-to of brush. Tobar an Dualchais - Tiree charms, including a ribbon to protect against bullets,... Title - Tiree charms, including a ribbon to protect against bullets,...

Herne's Oak (Windsor Park-Berkshire)

The best account of the legend of Herne and the Oak I have found is in Jennifer Westwoods 'Albion', quite a convulted legend but the main evidence quoted about the Oak is that the Oak was cut down in the reign of George III, it was commemorated in the Whitehall Evening Post:‘Upon Herne’s Oak being cut down in the spring of 1796’ (obviously before snappy tabloid headlines George had given orders for a number of old oaks to be cut down in the park, which included Herne’s Oak. George is said to have sown confusion about whether the tree had actually been cut down (after all he was a bit mad) and Queen Victoria believed that the Oak still stood. Edward VII looked into the story and found it had indeed been cut down in George’s reign. Genii Loci II : Spirit of Place. Our land is sacred, as the Native Americans taught us and the ancient Britons believed.

The presiding deity varied from place to place. I don’t think the ancient Britons equated one with another as the Romans did, saying ‘What you call Minerva we call Sulis.’ Instead they respected each genius as unique to that place.

The Mysterious Influence of One Human Mind: William Walker Atkinson

In the earliest records, traditions and legends may be found reference to the general belief that it was possible for an individual to exert some weird uncanny power over the minds of other persons, which would influence the latter for good or evil. And more than this, the student will find an accompanying belief that certain individuals are possessed of some mental power which bends even “things” and circumstances to its might.

Investigating Animal Burials; Ritual, Mundane and Beyond. Preface and Acknowledgments In recent years, zooarchaeology has started to movebeyond the purely economic towards socialinterpretations.

Investigating Animal Burials; Ritual, Mundane and Beyond

In particular, these ‘social’ interpretationshave often concentrated upon complete or partial animalburials rather than the disarticulated and fragmentedfaunal remains more commonly recovered fromarchaeological sites. This book presents a study of animalburials, referred to as associated bone groups, from theNeolithic to late Medieval periods of southern Englandand Yorkshire.

Not only does it present data on over 2000deposits, it also discusses their interpretation, arguing thatmost are based on generalised period-based assumptions.It is proposed that a biographical approach would allowthe investigation of the specific above-ground actionsbehind the deposits creation, moving away fromgeneralisations towards individual interpretations.
