That is indeed an interesting development. To the best of my knowledge I am
the only one who has written about the link between S28/U152, the Oslojford
area of Norway, and settlements along the eastern coast of Scotland. I
wonder how he was alerted to this connection. Anyway, I would be pleased to
include him in my S28/U152 all company database at:
I would be greatful if somone would contact RTE or Diarmuid, and/or send me
an e-mail address.
I wish that I had access to this program, but expect that it will be out on
DVD in short order. One of my Christmas presents was the DVD, "In Serch of
Ancient Ireland". I have not yet watched it, but since it is a PBS
production, I recon it will be pretty good.
