For anyone wondering, the name of this song is "the dragon's lullaby". And it is nearly impossible to find other recordings of it, because it was outlawed by the English when they invaded Scotland, just as any image of a dragon was, because the dragon was the national symbol of Scotland up until then. The English hoped that by executing anyone who displayed their national pride (or who displayed solidarity with the Scottish, if they happened to not be Scottish themselves) they would break the spirit of the Scottish people and quell any rebellion. The bagpipes themselves were outlawed, not entirely as a symbol of Scotland, but partially because the English considered them a nefarious weapon of war that gave the Scottish an unfair advantage. In the mountains those pipes will echo and can be heard for miles around, and the English, who had never heard anything like them before, found the sound eerie and haunting. So much so that they could not sleep. So the night before battle, one lone bagpiper could keep an entire English army awake. This meant that the morning of battle the English armies were groggy and jumpy and not in a good way for fighting, whereas the Scottish army (who at, worst found the sound mildly irritating, and at best actually found it soothing) were well rested and ready to fight. Thus comes the English decreeing that simply being found with bagpipes was enough for you to hang for. This concludes the history lesson on bagpipes in the Scottish uprising against the English. I could go on, but I doubt many will bother to read this whole thing anyway.

Hi all, I was wondering if there's anyone in the Brighton area? I might be moving there for a few months to complete my education.

Imbolc in the East Riding of Yorkshire: We shall be marking the festival of renewal and the awakening of Spring on Saturday 6th January at Wharram Percy as usual. Our bonfire welcomes all who wish to attend Skyclad and again we will anoint the seeds as a symbol of fertility.

Samhain: I know that it seems a long time ago but wanted to share a quick update: our group I hesitate to use any other word as we follow various pats, having celebrating Skyclad primarily in common) combined with another "group", also celebrating naked, from a little further South and at a new venue and had a lovely ritual for this special occasion.

We are a mixed age group and they slightly older but it worked well thanks to some good liaison prior so that our ritual practice was able to fit well together.

The new venue was wonderful: a very spiritual place but while roofed it allowed for the fire to both be a part of the rite and keep us warm!

On towards mid-winter!

Brightest Blessings,

John.

In less than 2 weeks I will begin my 2 week stay in the UK. The first that I ever been over seas. I'm so excited and so looking forward to my journey. Will be staying in Glastonbury. Plan on seeing the traditional sites such as Stonehenge and Avebury Circle, but was wondering if any of you have any suggestions as to any pagan events, sites , etc that you think that I may find of interest .  Also, I'm a total history freak and plan to take in several castles and monasteries.
