Dear Martin,

I totally agree with this statement:

What I don't understand is why you seem to think that by posting
a section from the Anglo Saxon chronicles that I was endorsing their
"factualness".

Frankly, as I said before, as myth, they are great. So are the
Irish Annals. They are parts of our culture. The Picts did exist --
we have their stones to show that. Of course if they really did
come in Roman times they did not create the stones, as aledged.
