I guess I could speak up, as well. I joined the list a few weeks ago,
and have been quietly watching the recent developments. I haven't the
foggiest idea what my ancestry is, except to say that it's mostly German,
and I couldn't tell you how I first became interested in the Celts if I
wanted to. But, interested I am. I have amassed an interesting array of
novels, encyclopedias, and/or anthologies about or based on Celtic history
My only formal instruction in this area came last year, at the University of
Cincinnati (where I was finishing a Master of Science in Mechanical
Engineering), where I learned to translate a bit of medieval Welsh.
I am now at the University of Kentucky, pursuing a PhD in Engineering Mechanics,
hoping I don't forget my limited Welsh vocabulary faster than I learned it...
