We are your bona heathens… (Julian and Sandy: Round the Horne)

Faith should be joyful and life affirming

Humour is subjective

Faith through the lens of humour allows change and growth

Humour is based in a shared understanding of culture


‘At least we won’t die a straw death’ - Arrgh where is this from? I know it’s a saga, it’s a small matter of remembering which one...I’m sure I haven’t dreamt it…


Vikings are fatalistic.

Kate likes a happy ending

Vikings are utilitarian

In a hole in the ground...

The Viking graffiti at Maeshowe


A bit of a neolithic diversion:

Maeshowe and the Viking graffiti -

A laser scan of the tomb:

The Neolithic village of Skara Brae

The Tomb of the Eagles


The two most notable inscriptions: ‘X carved these runes up high’ and ‘Ingeborg is a very fair woman’


The Lincoln Comb Case: ‘Thorfast made a good comb’


Only listen to this after the 9pm watershed...
