Hi this is Eddy Jackson on the banks of

2
00:00:02,310 --> 00:00:04,650
the Upper River Wyre Wyre

3
00:00:05,040 --> 00:00:06,960
in Celtic means a winding river

4
00:00:07,170 --> 00:00:09,540
and I've given the clue of the title here

5
00:00:09,540 --> 00:00:11,790
because I am at this part of Lancashire

6
00:00:12,380 --> 00:00:14,800
where the Celts the Norse people

7
00:00:15,160 --> 00:00:16,840
the Anglo Saxons and the Picts

8
00:00:17,090 --> 00:00:19,530
fought for supremacy it's a

9
00:00:19,530 --> 00:00:21,170
fairly unique river in the British

10
00:00:21,170 --> 00:00:23,510
Isles it's very short and

11
00:00:23,510 --> 00:00:25,660
from here on the high ground of the Bowland fells

12
00:00:26,230 --> 00:00:28,670
look west and twenty miles you could

13
00:00:28,670 --> 00:00:31,110
see where the river Wyre goes into Morecambe

14
00:00:31,110 --> 00:00:32,960
Bay so this area

15
00:00:32,960 --> 00:00:34,920
a thousand years ago in the dark

16
00:00:34,920 --> 00:00:37,290
ages was an area of contest

17
00:00:37,290 --> 00:00:39,790
between different tribes it is also

18
00:00:39,790 --> 00:00:41,560
- contest's about

19
00:00:41,870 --> 00:00:44,240
religion I'm interested in

20
00:00:44,240 --> 00:00:45,720
language because of

21
00:00:46,310 --> 00:00:47,960
storytelling and narrative

22
00:00:48,720 --> 00:00:51,090
and I'm using language to tell a

23
00:00:51,090 --> 00:00:53,340
story about a

24
00:00:53,720 --> 00:00:56,170
certain time in history about

25
00:00:56,170 --> 00:00:58,050
Norse people Celts and

26
00:00:58,050 --> 00:01:00,150
Picts and the story I

27
00:01:00,150 --> 00:01:02,320
tell is about a Norse settlement that's

28
00:01:02,320 --> 00:01:04,580
raided by Celts and

29
00:01:04,580 --> 00:01:06,750
some of the Norse people are carried off

30
00:01:07,240 --> 00:01:09,440
and it's a story of redemption because the

31
00:01:09,440 --> 00:01:11,780
Norse go back to

32
00:01:11,780 --> 00:01:13,670
capture the

33
00:01:13,670 --> 00:01:16,120
slavers so the stories

34
00:01:16,120 --> 00:01:18,380
is not only an adventure story and historical tale

35
00:01:18,760 --> 00:01:21,250
it's about the use of language to have

36
00:01:21,250 --> 00:01:23,380
cognisance a recognition

37
00:01:23,380 --> 00:01:25,880
to the power of nature not only are

38
00:01:25,880 --> 00:01:27,890
rivers aren't pollutted but the

39
00:01:27,890 --> 00:01:30,340
animals and the bees - and the

40
00:01:30,340 --> 00:01:32,630
birds in the vegetation and the

41
00:01:32,630 --> 00:01:35,010
plantations that surround the area they

42
00:01:35,010 --> 00:01:36,920
play an integral part of the story

43
00:01:37,340 --> 00:01:39,840
so here I am putting a contemporary environmental

44
00:01:39,840 --> 00:01:42,340
hat on and trace their roots back to

45
00:01:42,340 --> 00:01:44,530
when this was a wild

46
00:01:44,530 --> 00:01:46,920
natural habitat and that

47
00:01:47,210 --> 00:01:49,650
- habitat plays a part in supporting

48
00:01:49,650 --> 00:01:51,890
the heroine of

49
00:01:51,890 --> 00:01:54,050
of this story so the

50
00:01:54,050 --> 00:01:56,060
stories and adventure story and

51
00:01:56,060 --> 00:01:58,430
historical - fiction story
