    Just listened to the show, it was great.  I never heard of a god named Wyland, very interesting.I'm a little sorry that I rushed through the shows to catch up, now I have to wait.  I started to listen to the "Scotscast" again. In my haste I missed a lot,  thanks for the podcast.your loyal member Kellsray(Jamie, you wouldn't happen to have a secret horde)

    I'm so pleased that you liked it!  Cathy is an absolute pleasure to speak with and I was really lucky that she had the time to share with us!  The hope is that once I get this archaeologist interview done, I'll be releasing stuff a little faster for the duration of the Staffordshire Hoard Project.  Or at least, longer episodes.  But Stephen will really set the stage for us, so I want you to hear from him before we dive into everything.

    Just listened to the episode today. Cathy sounds like a down-to-earth character who really knows her stuff. It's interesting to hear about the hoard and the stories and legends that go with the history and research connected to it. Looking forward to further episodes.I was, however, wondering how you felt at the time Jamie.......nervous, excited, fearful of having gone all that way for the podcast and your listeners only to have a technical problem and the interview failed to record. Your worst nightmare, maybe? I am guessing you did sound and recording checks before hand. Where you overwhelmed at the thought of all the editing you were going to have to do when you got home?

    I wasn't nervous at the time, I was too busy being a huge nerd and just enjoying every minute of it.  But I was incredibly nervous before hand.  ;)

    You are way braver than me Jamie, but then the thought of doing a podcast in general fills me with dread so I wouldn't be in that position in the first place…..I mean people actually hearing my unmelodious tones is something I wouldn't want to impose on the world!

    Well, being a litigator has sort of hardened me with regard to speaking to groups.  Once you've had a judge shout at you (I was just a law student when that happened to me), it sort of turns the volume down on most other things, so to speak.  ;)

    I have just treated myself to a membership!  Yay!I was in the UK in October and one of the things I did was to go to a private viewing and lecture on the Staffordshire Hoard at PMAG.  So I have seen this iconic "Rise up O Lord" piece.  Stunning! What I wanted to share with you was my first reaction to the Hoard - the smallness of each piece! After seeing photos, I hadn't got an accurate picture in my mind of the size of the individual pieces, so that took a few minutes of adjustment.  But soon the smallness became part of the marvel of the Hoard - the intricacy of the craftsmanship was breathtaking.I also wanted to share with you that the famous 'Frank's Casket' in the British Museum in London has a depiction of the story of Weyland the Smith, as well The Adoration of the Magi - making this little metal box representative of the transition period, just like The Hoard.

    Yeah, I couldn't get over how tiny everything was as well.  It certainly made the Roman artwork at the British Museum seem pale in comparison.  The craftsmanship of the Anglo Saxons is absolutely stunning!
