I recently came across Michael Tsarion's work entitled "Irish Origins of Civilization." Michael was born and raised in Ireland and has a long-standing interest as a modern day historian and bard.
VERY interesting history.
I would like to share with you some of his information in the links below:
First, here's his website, which includes a lot of historical matters, including his use of Tarot divination.
For the thread at hand, here is a link to his lectures, in a slew of videos (quite extensive!) on YouTube, also including the Irish origins of civilization.
