4,000-year-old sword discovered by man with metal detector in parents' backyard

THE MORNING DIG! "A Bronze Age sword dating back as far as 1700 B.C. was found broken in pieces in Finland this past summer by a man using a metal detector in his parents' back garden. The Satakunta Museum said in a statement that such discoveries are very rare as less than 200 Bronze Age bronze objects have been found in Finland. 'A total of about 25 swords or daggers belonging to the period have been found, two of which were found in Panelia,' the statement said.

The rare discovery was made just two weeks after the man purchased his first metal detector.

BLACK AND WHITES! This has to be the best cookie by far to celebrate the Equinox. For the Autumnal, this one has a great spin offering a pumpkin variation. There is one for the Vernal, offering a lemon variation. Our favorite is the original vanilla, but whichever one works for you.

Milk fueled migration across Eurasian steppe 5,000 years ago

GOT MILK? "The analysis showed 90% of pre-Bronze Age individuals were not drinking milk. However, by the Early Bronze Age, 94% of the people living and moving across Eurasia were milk drinkers."

Hardened dental plaque coating the ancient teeth of Bronze Age pastoralists suggests the emergence of dairying and milk-drinking coincided with a wave of migration across the Pontic-Caspian steppe.

HOBBIT DAY

September 22nd is Hobbit Day. Celebrate the birthdays of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. The novels The Hobbit and the trilogy The Lord of the Rings trilogy written by J.R.R. Tolkien, bring to life the world of Middle-Earth. According to the stories, Bilbo and Frodo were born during the Third Age in the years 2890 and 2968 respectively. Translated to Shire-reckoning, Bilbo was born in 1290 and Frodo in 1368.

QUOTE

I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve. ~Bilbo Baggins ~ Lord of the Rings ~ J.R.R. Tolkien

HOW TO OBSERVE #HobbitDay

Join celebrations or have a Hobbit Day party of your own. Reading the book or watching the movies are other ways to enjoy the day. Create a celebration worthy of a Hobbit.

Everyone should dress for the occasion. Even though most of the trilogy takes place in the future, Hobbits live for a very long time. Look at when Bilbo and Frodo were born. There’s a very medieval and mystical feel to the costumes.

Other things to do would be to have a party supplied with plenty of cakes, teas, wine, and ale. You can invite a large crowd. Hobbits come from big families. You also could read from the trilogy or make a big speech. Don't forget to be merry and dance providing music, too. And share your celebration using #HobbitDay to post on social media.

Here’s Why the Upcoming Harvest Moon Is the Most Special Full Moon of the Year

HARVEST MOON! "The next full moon is set to appear on Monday evening, September 20th, at 7:55 p.m. EDT. Those living anywhere in the U.S. will be able to see this full moon from Sunday evening, September 19th, 2021, until Wednesday morning, September 22nd, 2021.

Our Story

An Opening Letter: Dear Reader,

Welcome Home! Hopefully you feel at home during your online and in person visits. We are the second largest Druid Community in the world and we want to help inspire you be a better version of you tomorrow than you are today by way of Druidism. Together we can make a difference with a basic knowledge of Druidry using our Strength, Courage, Vision and Wisdom to dig more deeply into the secrets of the Ancient Druids. To ensure an accurate description in both theory and practice of the Druids of Old, we wish to deconstruct what neo-paganism has depleted through the rehashing of the same elements that have been taught since the Sixties. Our purpose will be to ignite a Druid Reformation to ensure these Mystical Priests are placed back on the pedestal they once held.

The Druid Circle is part of a larger society. We call that society, “Druid Society International”. There are (4) Three Parts of that society. First, The Druid Circle is the social interaction arm that shares events and celebrations that for the most part are just communal, to create a network for the greater Druidhood. Second, our Spiritual Magnification Arm allows individuals to participate in a deeper religious connection to the Holy Ancients and can be reached via the *Druid Order of Blest Stone and Wood. Third, Druid University is the Academic Development Arm to demonstrate the most accurate and comprehensive conceptions of the Druids in a lifetime of learning process of 20 years. Fourth, is Druid Living: A Conservative Folk Magazine highlighting a way of life we can all share to appreciate who these wonderful Holy Men and Women were. Druid Society Inte can be reached through the

Know that that there others who also want to come together and uncover mystery, history, and druidry. Through our organization’s page, the Magic, which we call “Draíocht” [DDRAY-ohct] shall be revealed to you in your hands, as the Occult which we call, “Rúnda” [ROON-deh] shall be revealed to you in your eyes. As far as other ways to connect with us for now, we use Meetup for those that don’t have Facebook. We no longer have “Facebook Groups” so even if they are attached to us, we no longer use them. If you want to look more into our Druidhood, check out our YouTube Channel for an introduction video about who we are and what we want to accomplish. We will be using this more as we gain 1000 subscribers so we can go live with you. Thanks again for stopping by being curiouser and curiouser. We hope you not only come to some of our events but also enjoy our posts. May this be a teaching.
