For the curious, here's the Rhys book in its proper sequence among the other pieces I've assembled over the years which shd between them provide the key sources for my current piece:
ROMAN ANTIQUITIES AT LYDNEY PARK, GLOUCESTERSHIRE
by the Rev. Wm Hiley Bathurst (1879)
LECTURES ON THE ORIGIN AND GROWTH OF RELIGION AS ILLUSTRATED BY CELTIC HEATHENDOM
by John Rhys (1888)
THE GREAT GOD PAN
by Arthur Machen (1890)
THE CAULDRON OF ANNWN
by T. E. Ellis (1922)
THE DREAM-QUEST OF UNKNOWN KADATH + THE STRANGE HIGH HOUSE IN THE MISTS
by H. P. Lovecraft (1926)
REPORT ON THE EXCAVATION OF THE PREHISTORIC, ROMAN, AND POST-ROMAN SITE IN LYDNEY PARK, GLOUCESTERSHIRE
by R. E. M. & T. V. Wheeler (1932)
Just out of curiosity, can anyone spot the common thread among them?
current reading: THE INN AT CORBIES' CAWW (Flieger), A NOBLE CAUSE (Doug Niles)
*this is the same John Rhys whose book CELTIC BRITAIN is probably Tolkien's source for the word 'Ond'/Gond (stone).
