So I will. This sounds very interesting, even though I would doubt
that those mentioned statues depict the same god, because of the
close connection between the statue and grave 1 as I mentioned. On
the other hand, as we know that a certain "divinity" was ascribed to
great kings of old, we could perhaps have found in the Glauberg the
person who was the "factual core" of a "Celtic god". Most
interesting. Maybe we can talk about this possibility a little bit
after I have returned from Wales and read Archaeology Ireland.

Yes, friends, if you get your hands on it, take a look at them, as
the finds are really, really impressive as well, not only the
findings are that sensational, the finds are, too.

Thanks, but making a sketch with a mailer programm not really adds to
the quality of the sketch. However, I am happy if it still was
sufficent that one saw how the situation looks approximatly, that's what
my intention was when I made them.
