I wanted to send out one more thank you to those of you - and you know who you are - who offered me help in this subject. I gave the lectures last week to very good response. So good, in fact, that the first lecture which was scheduled to last for 1 1/2 hours ended up lasting nearly 3 hours due to the interest of the participants. Throughout the five days that I was attending the SCA event many, many people came to me wanting to discuss more about the subject. Your help and ideas for inquiry really gave me a solid foundation erected from the ruins to history to work with, and I truly appeciate what help was offered.
I will be posting the essay that I wrote from the lecture material to my web site by August 2nd. If anyone would be interested to read it please let me know and I'll provide more details.
