Someone came to the Wordhoard today by Googling this phrase: "Was there such thing as a dragon in medieval times?"

As a public service, let me answer that question.

    Unless you count the Loch Ness Monster of course :-) Vita Columbae, cap. 28...

  2. (cries)

    Next you'll tell me there's no Easter Bunny.

  3. What? But "Welsh dragon" is the number 1 search term to find Heavenfield!

    Don't worry Jennifer...just look at the Welsh flag and you'll see all the proof you need for medieval dragons. :-) All those lovely caves in Wales that belch blue flames and nasty smells are all the proof good medieval folk needed that a dragon lurked there.

    (Ignore those folks who say its methane given off by coal that sometimes catches fire...what do they know.)

  4. I still like to believe that the chronicler for the year 793 of The Anglo-Saxon Chonicle actually saw the "fiery dragons... seen flying in the air" of which he wrote.
