History/Folklore Section of mayogodhelpus.com


History Index

Here, you will find an eclectic mixture of articles, comments and reviews, ranging in time from prehistoric days up to the recent past.
In plain English, that means that basically there is not set manner in which articles in this section are presented. It’s a matter of publishing accounts as they come to hand. Later on, I may try and impose some sort of categorisation but, for the moment, it’s a case of first ready, first published.
