GOODBYE, DREAMING FIELDS


Description:

For Martin Newell.

Just WHAT, pray tell, did a VIKING ever do for YOU?

What do the names ERIC THE RED and Leif Ericsson have to do with our modern world?

Well, first of all, after Eric the Red was banished from Norway, home of those recent terrorist KILLINGS, he set out to sea and promptly discovered GREENLAND....

Other Vikings went on to discover RUSSIA, CANADA and AMERICA, as well as founding the city of DUBLIN, Ireland.

"DUBH-LIN" means "Black Water", according to Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy, and I am inclined to believe him...

The Vikings started out as FARMERS, like most civilized folk, but with the invention of the KNARR, their Long Ships, men of action could not be content to sit around roaring fires, listening to thrilling tales of heroic deeds...

They went out and performed heroic deeds of their OWN....

They RAIDED the world...

When their ships appeared on the horizon, people of good sense headed DEEPLY inland....

It is WHERE the fear of VIOLENT INVASION springs from in the Modern Psyche...

Leif Ericsson discovered America 500 years before Columbus...And AMERIGO Vespucci...

He was Eric the Red's elder SON...

Leif and brother Thorvald Ericsson changed the map of the World. It is believed that their journeys were among the first to circumnavigate the globe...

The cities that they did not outright FOUND, they RAIDED....

They were MUCH loved by the KINGS of the lands they traveled...After much fighting and tribute making, many Viking Warriors became the personal GUARD of MANY royals palaces around the Middle East....

They married Arabic and Indian Wives...

They were the favorites of Several Egyptian Kings...in FACT, they were still in Egypt when HELEN OF TROY bolted there to hide out from her IRATE husband...
