    • Apologies for not responding to this sooner! Thank you so much for including us in your awards. I’m a bit pre-occupied right now with getting up an overdue episode (sorry everyone!), but once that’s done, we’ll see what we can do. It could be very interesting, considering there are two of us writing this blog!
      Thanks again for your loving kindness,

  2. I am so glad I found your blog, thank you for your wonderful stories you have posted here, I am going to work through all your podcasts from the beginning. This is just what I need to be hearing at this time; I am just about to start the Bardic Grade of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids and hope to become a storyteller one day myself. Your idea of using archaeology on ancient stories is inspired,
