We have had a couple serious weeks around here, and so I am having a little fun with my blog today.
Therefore, please go to read this VERY COOL piece at the History blog. HERE.
It has to do with ancient pagan gods, J.R.R. Tolkien, a lost and – centuries later found – cursed gold ring too big for a person’s finger, a lead curse-tablet with the name of the person who inscribed his name on the ring …
It may have been the inspiration for Tolkien to write about a certain other gold ring.
Just too cool.
