Of Anglo-Saxon Mythology – ''Beowa'' was The Pagan God of agriculture and of barley. His very name was adopted for the term ''barley'' (Old English). ''His'' origins are often linked to Norse inception during their invasions of England in the 8th Century AD. Shown in Art as a ''handsome, young farm hand''m the first harvested barley was given to Him, to ensure an abundant harvest. Many Scholars of Mythology also cite that Beowa served as the later English origins for the equally mythical figure – John Barleycorn.
