November 2000

06/11/00 This is probably the last update, for this year. No additional articles will be added at least until after Christmas. I am pretty busy doing a business training course on Small Business Management. Because of the long weekend the Melbourne Cup (holiday), I have decided to put at least few more addition and changes.

However, I will still answer your e-mails.

There is an update in Other Knights in the Round Table.

I have a small article on Nott (Night) in the Non-Aesir Deities and Brisings in the Minor Norse Characters (Norse).

Fixed a few minor problems with links in Norse myths.

A few images scanned and donated by Xaryan. These include Athena, Poseidon, Freyja; Odin at Volsung’s hall, and a statue of an old centaur.

Other pictures scanned by me Atlas, The Oath of the Horatii, Lancelot and Guinevere’s First Kiss.

A correction is made to the old picture of Freyja by Arthur Rackham. In fact, this picture was suppose to be Idun, Keeper of the Apples of Youth. This picture has been moved to article on Idun. In the article of Freyja, I had replaced the old picture with Freyja in a chariot.
