Heroice Age



A new issue of Heroic Age at last. Yay! Lots of ruminations on Arthur and folklore, leading off with a piece by C. Scott Littleton on parallels between two tales which may or may not have a common origin:

Abstract: In this paper we consider whether the Norse story of the "Sword in the Branstock" and the Arthurian tale of the "Sword in the Stone" may represent two variants of a tale about a celestial event that occurred 2160 B.C.E

Plus there's the usual assortment of reviews, letters, forum articles, etc., and what looks to be a promising new collaborative column from/with the Babel group. Good stuff.
