The particularity with which the scenes of his life, from birth to death, are laid in definite towns and places, speaks strongly in favour of a genuine local tradition, and as strongly against the theory of a solar myth, into which some writers would dissolve the story of the brawny hero.

... use of fires? If not, the inference should be that these crowded passageways were used by the living, and that they, like those of Godhavn, may have been suddenly destroyed. In view of the circumstances of the Flood there is nothing in this view in the least impossible or even unlikely. As for Wayland Smith's barrow, folklore associated it with "magic" proceedings, and the interior of the stone-built chamber of oblong shape, some 75 by 42 ft., has a cruciform passageway of big slabs and gives the impression that here was a Cabin, or Druidic secret temple of initiation. Indeed, Wayland Smith, with his reputation for wizardry, suggests that ...

According to the Welsh Triads, the first of the Three Awful Events in the Isle of Britain was the bursting of the Lake of Floods and a rushing of water and a flood over all lands until the people were utterly destroyed except Dwyvan and his wife Dwyvack, who escaped in an open vessel, and from whom the Isle ...

297. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... fault lines exhibit, even nowadays, great sheets of light, like blankets floating in the sky, gushing forth in many colours. It is, perhaps, simplistic just to think in terms of comets and meteoric firework displays. Catastrophic too. These factors seem to be wholly relevant to the late 5th and early 6th centuries AD. The folklore attached to St. Columba and several other early saints of the Celtic Church is explicable in terms of enhanced sun activity, increased electro-magnetism at the poles and auroral phenomena. Sacred sites may have earned a reputation due to light and other phenomena at particular moments in history. Holy wells are an example of the process, as their roots ...

... . He said that some of the Gauls held the tradition that "they had poured in from the remote islands and the regions across the Rhine, driven from their homes by continual war and the inundation of the stormy sea". So, to add another element here, possibly via the Phoenicians, have we got some of this Celtic folklore about disappearing islands. Now, I am going to end up by giving you a boring or an interesting solution. I personally feel that the Atlantis story as we have it, transmitted to Solon, was a pastiche built up in Egypt, around about 600 BC, in the basic version we have. I think these elements here ...

... the expected damage would be. We even now get a tidal effect from the Moon. Any effect like that is bound to turn a lot of energy into heat. It's just a question of whether the effects (volcanoes, floods) are of the order to fit the historical evidence." Elizabeth Chesley Baity: "We do have folkloric evidence." Peter Warlow: "The Egyptians have a flood tradition, they say they did not have a flood. They are near the pole around which the Earth would have rotated and therefore they would not get any marked effects."
