Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Hi Beth! Found your blog through reading this week's article in The Lady, celebrating senior bloggers - do so agree - technology has changed my senior life and i love it. Do so agree about films with "real" people in them - saw two about Mongolia - but being senior can't remember the titles!! One about a white camel calf and another one closely related about the steppes of Mongolia - they are rivetting. Regards to you.

I'm intrigued by the Bamiyan animation. About a year ago I was helping put together a bibliography about the Silk Road, and the (now destroyed) Buddhas of Bamiyan were one of the major sub-topics. There's some pretty interesting stuff online about them; one site is trying to digitally re-create them from old photographs, for example.

'The Invention Of Curry Sausage' sounds fascinating. Can't wait to see it. Is it a German film? A curious cultural context to have - one which leads to the almost forensic examination (and expiation) of recent history.
