I already wrote abut bedrock mortars in my article on Bullaun Stones. In that articles I compared the yet unclassified European bedrock sites with classified North American bedrock mortar sites. I then asked whether the European should be also classified as bedrock mortars, considering that they are functionally identical to the North American ones.

In this article I would like to present some new (to me :) ) evidence that supports my hypotheses that a lot of the European bedrock stones with large and deep cups could be (yet) unclassified bedrock mortars.

These are Racka sheep. The Racka is a unique breed with both ewes and rams possessing long spiral shaped horns. This sheep is a bit of a mystery, a mystery whose solving will shed new light on the history of the Balkans.

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away". This phrase was first recorded in the 1860s, when it is said to be an old saying from Pembrokeshire in Wales. The original phrase was, ‘"Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread." In the 19th century and early 20th, the phrase evolved to "an apple a day, no doctor to pay" and "an apple a days sends the doctor away," while the phrasing now commonly used was first recorded in 1922.

So what does this phrase actually mean? Well its clear isn't it. It means that eating an apple a day (one of these fruits on the picture below) is good for your health.

But if you have said "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" before the mid of the 17th century, the meaning of the phrase wouldn't have been so clear at all. This is because the word apple before the mid 17th century had a quite a different meaning.

This old meaning of the word apple can help us solve a very old mystery: where does the word apple, and all related words for apple in Germanic, Celtic and Slavic languages, come from and what was the original meaning of this word...

In this post I would like to talk about the word "knee" and the special meaning that knee has in Serbian and Irish culture. 

While in almost all other Indoeuropean languages the word for knee comes from the root "gn, kn" and means knee, angle, in Celtic and Slavic languages the words for knee come from the root "gln, kln" . The word knee also has additional meanings in Irish and Serbian which are not found in other languages:

Serbian (koleno, koljeno, kaljen, kalino, kolino, golino): knee, angle, generation, step in descent, offspring, family, clan, race, house

Gaelic (glúin): knee, angle, generation, step in descent, step in pedigree

Why?

The riddle of Odin's ravens

Odin had two ravens named Huginn (Old Norse “thought”) and Muninn (Old Norse “mind”). Every day, Odin would send them out at dawn, and the birds would fly all over the world before returning at dinner-time. They would then tell Odin everything they saw and heard. It is said that this is the reason why one of Odin's names was “raven-god” (hrafnaguð).

In the Poetic Edda sonnet Grímnismál, the god Odin (camouflaged as Grímnir) tells Agnarr, the young son of King Geirröðr a very strange thing about his two ravens.
 

Hugin and Munin fly each day over the spacious earth.
I fear for Hugin, that he might not come back,
yet more anxious am I for Munin.

Scholars have been wondering for a long time about the meaning of the above verses.

I believe that the reason why scholars are still wondering what the meaning of the above verses is, is because they are not vikings.

Odin the wandering deity

While I was discussing Radegast (Welcome guest) with one of my friends, he reminded me that one of Odins names was "far traveled guest"...

This is very interesting. 

Odin also known as Vodan was by Romans identified as Mercury, who was the patron god of financial gain, commerce, eloquence (and thus poetry), messages, communication (including divination), travelers, boundaries, luck, trickery and thieves; he is also the guide of souls to the underworld.

In some dialects of South Slavic languages word "od" or "hod" means walk. "odi" or "hodi" means walks and "oditi" or "hoditi" means you walk, walking. The expression "odi on" or "hodi on" means he walks, he who walks.

Also in South Slavic languages word "vodi, voda" means leads. "vodi on, voda on" means he leads, "voda nas, vodi nas" means leads us, leader...

This corresponds perfectly with the description of Odin as wanderer and leader....

Is this just a coincidence?

This opens up a big can of worms....:)
