Richard II A Lesson From History

BY MANSEL JONES 

To the medieval mind kings were appointed by God. Therefore, to oppose a king was to challenge God. And yet, repeatedly throughout Richard II’s reign challenges were made and opposition remained strong. What provoked such opposition – the man, or his times? What led Richard to believe that he was a God? What were the factors that led to murder and rebellion?

How to Learn a New Language

ARAN JONES INTERVIEWED BY MILLIE SLAVIDOU

Together with Iestyn ap Dafydd, Aran Jones is the founder of the language learning website SaySomethingIn.com. This initially started out as Say Something in Welsh, but has gradually expanded to include Spanish, Dutch, Cornish, Manx and Latin.

Aran Jones had a varied childhood, in that he lived in anumber of different countries; England, Germany, Portugal, Sri Lanka and Malaysia, and continued this lifestyle into adulthood by living in Zimbabwe and Dubai before returning to the UK and settling in Wales, his ancestral homeland. Hearing other languages was therefore a norm for him, although he did not speak any other than English. However, his grandfather had been a Welsh speaker, and so he set about learning Welsh as a second language only as an adult, using the Wlpan course.

Samodivi — Witches of Darkness or Thracian Goddesses?

BY RONESA AVEELA 

Veelas, Wilis, Yuda, Samovili, Vili. These are a few names of nymphs of Slavic folklore, each group a little different from the Bulgarian Samodivi. Are they real or merely myths that have survived throughout the centuries? 

Who are these creatures? Where did they come from? And why do people fear them so much they are willing to leave their homes and move to another village or town?

You may be familiar with some of these nymphs already. The beauty and enchantment of Veelas has been portrayed in the Harry Potter series, and Wilis in the ballet “Giselle” dance men to their death.

But who are the Samodivi? Where did they come from?

You Must Be Joking

You Must Be Joking

I went shopping to our local supermarket on the weekend, as you do. But when I arrived there I found everyone in the car park. So I wandered over to the window and pressed my nose against the glass. Imagine my surprise when I saw two crocodiles strolling down the aisle between the asparagus and the mushy peas. Imagine my amazement when one of the crocodiles turned to the other and said, “Quiet in here today, isn’t it…”
