Pagan Themes in an English folk song

This old English folk song seems very pagan and has some clear parallels in old pagan mythology. It is the story of two magical people, originally gods, usually wizards in the song, who can change their shape. One, often a blacksmith, is pursuing the other, often a virgin girl, who attempts to escape by transforming into animals and things, but he pursues by also transforming. It is a bit un PC!

BRONZE AGE BRITAIN!


New documentary film! What do we know about the people who brought the Bronze age to Britain? Basically, they were cool - they had metal weapons, big gold jewellery and trade networks stretching from Scandinavia to Mycenaean Greece and beyond! I collaborated with a couple of really cool artists to make this video - check out their work by following the links in the description. Both the map and the image of the Bush Barrow chieftain will be made available soon!

Cheddar man and Mesolithic Europeans


Cheddar man was typical of Mesolithic European hunter-gatherers. His physical features and way of life resembled others who lived in Western and Central Europe from 14,000 to 6000 years ago. Geneticists call his race the Western Hunter Gatherers (WHG). The Mesolithic is characterised as the warm period following the ice-age. In this video I visit Cheddar gorge and the very cave in which Cheddar man was found. I look at some late stone age hunting tools such as microliths and I even describe what the Mesolithic religion was like based on the scarce evidence we have, from the caves of El Cogul to the Shigir idol of Russia. The main WHG samples I look at are Loschbour man, Cheddar man, La Brana man and Villabrunna man.

Film review: Midsommar


I said I would review this film didn't I???

Sorry I took so long to do it but I wanted to wait for Frodi and John to be ready to do it on Guide to Kulchur.  I enjoy doing these reviews with them as they see things that I miss and I think the overall review is richer when we collaborate. Overall I actually enjoyed this film although there is also a lot to criticise. We also focus on the pagan themes of the film and its historical accuracy.

Arya Akasha return to Jive Talk to discuss 'the Role of Priests' in Indo-European religion. What have the pontifex, the flamen dialis, the Brahmins, the Druids, he Godi and all the other priests of pagan religions in common? What is their social function and the justification for their authority? What is their relation to other castes and authorities?

These are all important questions to consider for those who wish to call themselves pagans and practice Indo-European religions.

When the Romans conquered Britannia in AD 43, the Britons resisted at first but were gradually Romanised. This means they adopted Roman customs, latin language and Roman gods, but they also preserved some of their old Celtic ways and even some of the Celtic gods. In this film I look at Romano-British syncretism and the merging of Celtic and Latin deities such as Sulis-Minerva who had her cult centre in Bath. I visited Chedworth Roman Villa and Bath spa to film this, as well as several museums around the world!

Arya Akasha is a research institute headed by Tristan and Curwen who join me this evening to discuss the theories. They study and live the wisdom of the medieval Norse pagan religion and the Ancient Vedic religion. Their theories concern all Indo-European religions but focus specifically on two: the Nordic and the Hindu. I have lots to ask these learned chaps and I am sure you do too!

Learn more about Arya Akasha on their blog: https://aryaakasha.wordpress.com/

A look at a Bronze age structure on Dartmoor with came to be associated with Odin in the medieval times when it was named Grimspound. I also look at some pagan burial mounds in Exmoor, a Neolithic stone circle on Dartmoor called Scorhill, charming clapper bridges of the moors and I explain some fascinating local folklore about a stone with a hole in which can bestow fertility on a young woman!

I covered some pretty weighty topics in this stream this evening. My part lasts about 75 minutes. I think it went very well and these two hosts, Jason and Jared, put together some interesting questions.

The Slavic peoples used to worship pagan gods like Perun, Svarog and Veles. In this video we look at a group of Polish pagans called GROMADA BIAŁOŻAR during their May day rite. I also discuss the genetic origins of the Slavs, the Slavic expansions into the Balkans in the migration era, the conversion of slavs to Christianity and the linguistic origin of Proto-Slavic language.

The Norse god Týr is sometimes called a battle god of minor significance, while others argue. based on etymology that he was once the chief god of the Germanic peoples - a sky father. However, perhaps neither argument is entirely correct. In this video I am joined by Angriff and Dr Boaz and we will discuss Týr and the Proto-Indo-European sky father in the context of Georges Dumézil's theory that he was in fact a secondary sovereign god whose principle attribute was neither paternal nor related to battle, but judicial matters!

The Noble Savage in The Valley (Obscured by Clouds)

Rousseau's ideal of the Noble Savage ideal is criticised in this French film - La Vallée, also known as Obscured by Clouds, written and directed by Barbet Schroeder and set in the jungles of Papua New Guinea. It was criticised for being exploitative but critics failed to realise it was a critique of the post-colonial mindset and also of the orientalist perspective of many liberal and left wing people who project the ideal of the noble savage on to traditional cultures. This is made really explicit in this scene in which the Australian Olivier puts the selfish and romantic Viviane in her place and reminds her of who she really is - a white Western woman.

This documentary was filmed over the first four days of May in Padstow, Cornwall and Great Torrington, Devon. These two West-country towns have each preserved their own distinct May celebrations with rituals dating back to pagan times. In Padstow the event is centred around the hobby horse which they refer to as the "Old Oss", whereas in Torrington the Mayfair involves electing a May queen who is sits on a throne beneath the Maypole in the town square.

I join the Kulture team again to discuss another of my favourite films - The Wicker Man. It tells the story of Sergeant Howie (Edward Woodward) who goes to a Scottish island to investigate the disappearance of a young girl who the townsfolk claim never existed. On the island, Howie suspects murder as he encounters a strange pagan cult run by the charismatic Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee).
