And if you look at the preview, all he did for the first part is take what is known, and add in Columba materials.
I wonder who Cambridge is raising as their champion,
or if they have given up the field.
Not sure what this means. Columba is important for the conversion not so important for the accuturalisation debate
If I only had Grahma Hancocks's ego and rather complete lack of morals,
I could pirate what he published, sell it cheaper,
go into the Druids and replace Hancock's ayahausca tourism.
but I spent so much time talking experimenters down years ago,
that I certainly am reluctant to mention specifics of Druid hallucinogen use.
Christ, the National Health Service would be all over my ass.
No idea who this is. No evidence the druids used halicogenic drugs, apart from alcohol. Since they did not write anything down little is known of them
so on to the issues you raise - but in a more convenient order..
That is not what I said.
I said the English are not interested in Scottish history,
any more than OHS is interested in Shawnee history.
This can be seen in the spending of funds,
and the failure to handle the PIct stelae properly.
No evidence for this. Many key sites in Scotland were excavated with UK money. In any case my point remains, the Scots are very interested in thier own history. The Pictish stelae have their own museum and are handled very well.
Again, not what I said. I said Bazas had been hit by an impact airburst.
Ahh you know this because you were there? Odd because the phrase "impact airburst" does not occur in any source I have read.
Thanks for the news.
Pleased to be of service. Crucially they have found evidence for the making of vellum. This means the creation of manuscripts (in Latin of course vernacular writing did not occur till years later). It is posited that some early manuscripts in the BM come from Argyle. Though I have seen this sort of trick before with Cornwall where Ken Dark claims some manuscripts in the Vatican were made in Western Britain - stunning stuff if true.
Again, not what I said.
What I did claim was that three morphemes are preserved,
along with spelling confusions indicating that Indo European speakers
are trying to record a PIE language.
You can't read the language but can comment on "spelling confusion"? The Picts spoke Brythonic. If you want to call that PIE of BIE or EEE go ahead, but that is the latest evidence. Tryinbg to build a theary on "mispellings" and three morphemes

3 indeed you cannot comment on any languages you do not know.Before my stroke, I could at least check texts and translations.
For omse strange reason, Pliny's warning
"quo nihil terribilisimus mortalium timori est"
Along with Crete and SW Anatolia, Sunny Tuscany also comes in ahead of SW Scotland.
Please note Hancok' complete lack of abilities with ancient cultures,
and the same holds for the entire Ancient Aliens crew.
How can you check tranlsations If You Do Not Know the Languages. Surely this is elementary.
Obviosusly, you have never excavated or for that matter have any knowledge of
any metal workshop. Put up or shut up.
So according to you the Anglo saxons never manufactured their own jewellery, never built boats and never used latrines - because we haven't found a boatyard or a toilet block.
I suppose the Irish didn't make the Ardagh Chalice because we haven't found an Irish metal workshop? Ho ho again. Don't say that in a Dublin bar.
This is in effect what you are saying and it is ridiculous. I suggest you read a basic book on the Anglo Saxons (and early Ireland). A whole civilisation lasting for over 500 years and never made a thing. Amazing.
Leaves you with a big question though, who did make all this material? In different styles and for different purposes? Was it made in outer space and came down in an ateroid storm perhaps?That is not my fault.
But it makes you look a bit silly though. Since going by the same logic you presumably think the A/S stole all their boats? And cooking pots and swords etc etc. When did they plant crops? Or didn't they do that either? We haven't found any bags with seed grain - hey suspiscious.
And I wonder how the Turks are making out at Aphrodisias.
I am unfamiliar with the materials on Milesian brothels.
Well presumably they never existed because we haven't found one. Haven't found one in Athens either (suspsiscions of one) so presumbly the Athenians were all totally continent. None found in Rome either, Hmmm. As for Aphrodisias dunno, but it is unlikely all the statuary in the ancient world came from Aphrodisias eh - including the 5000 pieces Cassius took from Rhodes. Yet sculpture worshops are as rare as hens teeth.
So as I say the worshop obession is ridiculous. Precious items at this time were not created in version of Tiffany's with large shopfronts, tills, glass walls and counters.
As for Bede. Well the answer to my question is simple. He used the term "anglo Saxons" to distinguish those in Britain from the Saxons in Germany.
