February 21, 2005
After a bit of a slow start, I've changed the logo again, removing the image of the Emperor Justinian and the Aspar dish, replacing them with an image of Tre'r Ceiri, on of the possible locations of 'Caer Guorthigirn'.
Major changes to the text of
Gildas' De Excidio et Conquestu Britanniae, the prime text about Vortigern's time. I've combined a better English translation to the Latin text of Book I on one page.
Also, I've replaced several images in the
Art & Literature section for better ones. Lastly, I added some pictures to the articles about Modrun and Carn Fadrun.
