I have always been fascinated by the Gods and Goddesses, Demi-gods and all creatures of the Greek pantheon. The tales and lore is vast and covers so much regarding human and God-like struggles, feats and epic voyages. The ten part documentary series called Clash of the Gods covers stories from Zeus to Medusa to the epic tale of Odysseus and more. Filled with historians, archeologists and more to give their perspectives on these tales along with the visual representations makes this a series really worth watching.
Iceland is filled with wonders, folklore, mystical beings and amazing tales of spiritual encounters dating back since the Viking Age and continues to this day. Such mystical beings are the famous Huldufólk (hidden people), Nissi, Dagtröll, Skuggabaldur, Stökkull and many more. Today’s Blog post features a great documentary I always enjoy watching and highly recommend which dives into this very subject plus gets deeper into more. Be sure also to check out the links below the video for even more.
I am a huge fan of history and the paranormal and when both subjects collide it really can create one fascinating topic. Especially when it involves real castles and the ghostly stories attached to them. The Castle Ghosts series, Presented by Robert Hardy dives into some really amazing real life stories of ghostly encounters by visitors and those living in castles throughout England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. But not only are the encounters retold but the history of the origins are presented as well for the viewer. I enjoy this series so much that I want to visit each of these castles featured to see if I myself experience anything paranormal.
So with that said I hope you enjoy the series as much as I do.
The Celts, also spelled Kelt, Latin Celta, plural Celtae were a collection of tribes which it is said originated in Central Europe but quickly expanded from the British Isles all the way to the Mediterranean. They even built a massive and vast roadway system long before the Roman Empire. In fact many of the Roman roads were built over ancient Celt roads. The Celts were not just known as fierce warriors but as amazing craftsman making the most intricate of jewelry, weapons and wares. It is believed they came into existence around 1200 BCE and became a true power throughout Europe controlling the regions of Northern Europe north of the Alps up to Great Britian and Ireland in the 3rd Century BCE.
Below is my favorite BBC documentary series that in my opinion covers the vast history of the Celts like none other.
At the bottom are several links as well for reading further on the Celts.
