shieling lent by Gratillonius, made love:
"Rain chuckled at the eaves of the shieling."
-Poul and Karen Anderson, The Dog And The Wolf, Chapter XXII, section 5, p. 447.
Armoricans kindle needfire between a garlanded menhir and a dolmen and plight their faith:
under the moon;
with drawn swords;
with their own blood;
by Lug, Christ and the Triple Mother.
Civilized men must accept this ceremony. Gratillonius is chosen as duke or war leader and appoints Salomon as his deputy and successor, handing him the newly forged sword of Armorica. Men shout:
"'Salaun! Salaun! Salaun!'" (section 6, p. 450)
This is the break with Rome. Salaun was king from 421 to 435. (p. 528) The myth of Ys connects with the history of Europe.
