News from Gwenth

Ah, gosh.. Is it 20xx with you?

I bet Gwenthia was started somewhere in 2004 or 2005, so we're about 16 years in! However time moves so much slower, and so it's been but a few moons.. [:-}]

The site is fairly robust, but no changes since 2012 basically..

Sadly gwenthia dot org has been seized, copied and use by malware scum, so avoid

The Timeline of Gwenthian history is know to a very few, probably only the Zathurians but few others know it in such detail as we postulate here. The timeline covers a period of 10,000 years. More distant events are, in some cases, mythical or legendary, but from about 5,000 years ago, the chronology is more clearly defined.

Dates are either shown as -xxx years BP (Before Present) or as xxx NC (New Calendar). The transition from Old Calendar and New Calendar is ignored by most Gwenthians (Parkheshi excepted who still use the Octaminist Calendar).

The standard 'present' for the Gwenthia world is 995 NC.
