Grupo de estudios nórdicos en México, España y Latinoamérica
Hello, this is a message and invitation to all of my spanish speaking followers:
En los últimos meses me he estado interesando más y más por el estudio de los pueblos nórdicos de una manera más seria y académica, sin embargo es frustrante el hecho de que prácticamente no se hacen investigaciones de este tema en español; por lo que decidí dar un paso para remediar esto y crear un grupo en Facebook llamado “Estudios nórdicos en México, España y Latinoamérica”.
Sé que no es mucho, pero creo que es una buena manera de comenzar, como un punto de discusión y difusión en donde todos los interesados en el tema podamos estar en contacto y compartir bibliografía, eventos, convocatorias, noticias y demás.
Arqueólogos, historiadores, antropólogos, linguistas y todas las demás personas que estén interesadas en promover el estudio serio de los vikingos en español son bienvenidos.
To one of the previous asks about various Norse goddesses: Please just remember that it's Frigg, not Frigga; the later version is mostly only used in the Marvel comics universe where they for some odd reason felt the need to add an a to the name.
Archaeologists from the University of Warsaw and the National Museum in Szczecin began the second season of excavations in Suchań, Western Pomerania. This is the place where settlers from Bornholm arrived 1500 years ago.
Excavations covered the central part of the settlement, in the region of…
The fear side to the Vote no campaign is such bullshit, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and India have all walked this path before and prospered in way more uncertain circumstances because the British government respected our desire to self govern and gave us everything we needed to get going. The only difference with Scotland is Westminster is openly hostile to the idea and would probably broker a shitty deal with the Scots to try and prove that it was a bad idea all along.
Hello! I am currently in a Goddess Culture in Asian Traditions class at my University. I have to write a 10-20 page research paper on a Goddess from another culture that we do not cover in class. I was wondering if you or any of your followers have any suggestions for someone in either the Norse or Celtic traditions? Thanks!
Well there are some pretty badass goddesses in Norse religion and mythology (also in Celtic, but to be honest I’m not that versed on that subject).
Salmond is a massive con artist, he can go on all day about how much he wants economic independence. Next sentence he wants a currency union so all the parameters of his economy will still be decided in London.
Hi, I just wanted to send you a ginormous thank you for reblogging my tumblr post about saving the viking/Háafell goats! I was so sad when I heard about Háafell's state, and I'm pretty sure you're to thank for all the notes/the radar feature on that post - and to thank for all the donations towards helping the goats! Much gratitude. (And I love your tumblr! I don't reblog as much stuff as I should but that's because I assume anyone following me *must* be following you so). Thank you again :D
On the contrary, thank you for posting it. Otherwise I wouldn’t have found out about it and I couldn’t have helped.
I’m so happy that those lovely goats are gonna be safe and have a bright future ahead of them :)
(Your blog is also really cool, I should visit it more often to reblog stuff)
Hi! I'm french but my dad's parents are Spanish and my mother's father is Italian and spanish and her mother is French. So, I have Spanish, Italian and French blood in my veins. So, can I say I am Celtic? You Know, the Gaulish people was a Celtic people before the Gaulish war, in Spain the Celtiberian was a Celtic people too and some persons think about celtic tribes in northern Italy. But everybody think the Celts are Irish, Scottish or Breton (from Bretagne). What do you think about it ?
I thing ascendance is a complicated thing, it’s all a big mixture of everything, especially in France, Italy and Spain. As you say, there were Celts there, long long ago, but then came the Romans, and then the Germanic tribes (Goths, Visigoths, Francs), Spain and Italy where partially conquered by Muslims… So as I say, it’s all a big mix.
The idea that all French are descendants from the Gauls is not really accurate, it gained a lot of strength thanks to WWI and II as a way to separate France from Germany, even if both countries and populations share a big bunch of heritage (the Franks where Germanic). Asterix, as amazing as it is, is one of the biggest promotors of this idea that Celtic Gaul and Modern France are the same thing.
The traditional Celtic places you mention (Ireland, Scotland, Bretagne, and also Wales and Galicia in Spain) are so because the people where more isolated and didn’t mix that much.
