Yes, I suppose Arthur is a new age man! the old celtic, paganand druid myths go back to 300 BC and deal with the wars of gods and mortals for the lands (Ireland), Danaans(gods) to Tir Na Nog beneath the hollow hills, the victory of the Milesians (mortals) and the death of Conary Mor, High King of all Ireland at Tara. Almost entirely pagan.
I´ll study. Such great, great names. Words have their connotations... (smile)

J R R Tolkien is said to have had a special relationship to words in the sense that he first "felt the value, the taste of a word" and then created a figure, a village or what it might be in accordance with that

There is an old computer game, "Betrayal at Krondor" greatest PC game of all times, possible to play nowadays in a DOS-box, based upon a book by Raymond E. Feist, a fantasy writer. Just came through my mind

Ah Yes, (I read Tolkien books some time ago now) if only i had one tenththe passion he had for literature and word how joyful my dreams would be, my day would be an eternal embrace of life and its possibilities, in the mean time I will have to settle for my paintings and photographs although I have written a poem or two when i am in sensory overload.

The game name has a familiar ring to it, I'm sure I've seen it somewhere...

(I do dabble in a napoleonic battle from time to time)

cheers Torgny the pleasure is mine

Here are a couple more "runes" for you to decipher from a smaller log.

And here is the main inscribed tree which has fallen and is rotting. Can we call it a logbook since we can read from it?

Torgny,

I hope you can go soon to those rock carvings and post photographs of them. An hour's drive from here are some Mogollon Indian petroglyphs that I enjoy visiting. They are fun to take children to and listen to their interpretations (often much more interesting through imagination than that of adults.)

JDar!, JDar!, what have you discovered this time!, you know what, I think these are real runes but the main etchings is a 'MAP', I've seen this type of thing before you know, perhaps its a treasure maps, it a funny thing but i found an old treasure map in an old wood carved chest the other day but i dont know where to locate the map, perhaps your runes and map match up with my map what do you think?
