MacFarlane's Golden Lantern
The owner and President of this company is a member of the MacFarlane Clan and the Miller Sept. We originated in Scotland, at some time moved to Wales, and eventually sailed for the New World around the mid to late 1700's. In researching the MacFarlane Clan, we learned that the full moon was called MacFarlane's Lantern because our Clan was very good at (ahem!) BORROWING cattle! The MacFarlane Clan is just one of the many Clans that live in the Scottish Highlands. Sadly, the Highlands are now vacant, because of fighting against invaders and other Clans! The MacFarlane Clan has an interesting website that we have provided a link for any interested parties. We encourage you to find out what you can about your own heritage, and take pride in it!
Pottery in History
If you get the History and History International channels, we urge you to watch them now and again as there are many fascinating shows on! There is a particular show that is amazing to watch. The Time Team is permitted 3 days to dig in various parts of Great Britain. In many of their archaelogical digs, they found many artifacts that give us a glimpse of the past! In one of their digs, they found a great deal of Medieval pottery. Pottery has been a part of civilization for thousands of years. Pottery was easy and cheap to make, and was apparently a great trade item.
As a SCAdian, I have noticed at events, many like to use wooden plates and bowls for meals. My question is, Why aren't more gentiles using ceramic plates and bowls? They are quite period and are especially cheap and easy to replace! ......... Just a though I had one day.
