Feb 9 – Apr 6 – follow Sondra Wilson’s live blog as she travels throughout Europe to complete books one and two within her upcoming The Hidden History of Law textbook series.
Book 1 – Inside the Library of Ashurbanipal – about the earliest written human languages, the first archaeological evidence of money and the commercial and criminal law systems, the first kingships (royal families), and the cultures who invented them.
Book 2 – The Colonization of Pre-Christian Europe, and the Birth of Civil Law – explores the spread of a certain diaspora of Judaism as it traveled from Canaan to Rome, reformed into the Roman Catholic Empire. then spread across and conquered Europe beneath a foreign legal system. During my travels throughout Europe, I intend to visit the following sites (it doesn’t have to be them all) because they signify major battles wherein Indo-Europeans resisted colonization:
Irminsil, Saxony (Germany) – Charlemagne declared war specifically to destroy their most sacred tree during the Saxon Wars. A church was erected on its place in 783 and blessed by Pope Leo III. The Old Norse form of Irmin is Jörmunr, which just like Yggr is one of the names of Odin. Yggdrasil is a cosmic tree from which Odin sacrificed himself in order to gain knowledge to help humanity; it is said that he “spied the runes” (the written language of the Scandinavian people) as he hung upside-down.
Nottingham (England) – the legendary forest where Robin Hood resisted the King’s Sheriff.
Saami people (Eastern Norway) – oppressed by the early Roman Catholic Empire for allegedly practicing witchcraft, the Saami people are an indigenous people native to the Eastern Norway region. I met a group of Saami people while at Standing Rock, and was blown away, “White people who live in tipis?? Talking about being colonized in Norway???” I would like to visit the Saami people and lands, learn firsthand stories, and document anything worth adding into my book.
