1. Herodotus: Ancient Germany and
Central Europe were Virtually Unpopulated!
In The Tribes we described how the Ten Tribes moved to Scythia and from there
via a sojourn in Central Europe, Scandinavia, and Germany, moved westward.
Conventional understanding is that the peoples in these regions had always been
there. Nowadays they are prepared to admit that new elements may have arrived
from the east but these were not necessarily significant.
In reply, we quoted from archaeological evidence that most of Germany and the
related area in ca. 700 BCE was empty.
The extract below from Herodotus shows that this was testified to be a
contemporary historian who did not live that far away from the area in question.
[Julius Caesar also indirectly gives evidence of his own but this we shall quote
at another time.]
The reference below mentioning the Sgynnai being colonists from the
Medes is interesting since one of the areas the Israelites were taken to was
"the cities of the Medes" (2-Kings 17).
Herodotus ca. 484-424 BCE (The Histories, 5.9):
9. Of the region lying further on
towards the North of this country no one can declare accurately who the men are
who dwell in it; but the parts which lie immediately beyond the Ister [i.e.
Danube] are known to be uninhabited and vast in extent. The only men of whom I
can hear who dwell beyond the Ister are those who are said to be called Sigynnai,
and who use the Median fashion of dress. Their horses, it is said, have shaggy
hair all over their bodies, as much as five fingers long; and these are small
and flat-nosed and too weak to carry men, but when yoked in chariots they are
very high-spirited; therefore the natives of the country drive chariots. The
boundaries of this people extend, it is said, to the parts near the Enetoi, who
live on the Adriatic; and people say that they are colonists from the Medes. In
what way however these have come to be colonists from the Medes I am not able
for my part to conceive, but everything is possible in the long course of ages.
However that may be, the Ligurians who dwell in the region inland above Massalia
call traders Sigynnai, and the men of Cyprus give the same name to spears.

The cattle were rather small, with a height of 1.20 m at the withers. Horses
were not much bigger with a mean of 1.25 m.
2. Scandinavian Bronze Age Ethnic
Origins and Artistic Smilarities to Egypt and Carthage.
Brit-Am Significance: The references below show that Scandinavia received
immigrants from areas in the east.
We believe these to have been Israelites. The Northern Israelites before their
exile had been heavily permeated by Egyptian and Canaanite culture as
archaeological findings prove.
One of the overseas colonies founded by the Canaanites was Carthage. The
Phoenicians were in effect Canaanites.
Finds in Scandinavia showing similarities to those of Egypt, Carthage, and the
Middle East area in general therefore help strengthen our position that
Israelites moved there.

European review about mtDNA haplogroup T1 in Gothenburg area tells about

"In London, in 1891, C.W.Skarstedt was awarded the Medal of Merit at the "Orientalist
Congress", and he had also represented Lund University at the Congress of the
Orientalists in Stockholm in 1889. He received the Award for his thesis, which
was sent to the Congress in London, a thesis entitled On the Existence of
Phoenician Colonization in Scandinavia."
Not only that. Around 7 years ago I wrote about the exceptional rock-carvings
near Gothenburg in the valley of Gauta Elv. Then I suggested heavy connections
to Egypt and that fits the mtDNA as evidence.

Some of the ships associate to Egyptian reed boats.
When we look at details, we also associate to Egypt. On the boat at left is a
dog's head at left and at the other end cone for Khons that symbolised corn and
harvest. The normal way to mark the season. Another example is "from empty boat
to basket" In Egypt the dog may be Sirius or Canis Major. A cone was the symbol
for the harvested grain, so we may read the boat "from the Sirius dog to Cone".
The Crocodile do not belong to the same people as the calendar from Alvhem and
it seems originally to belong to some Canaanite tribe.
The hand tell us that and we know it from Carthage. That means the origin could
be Tyre and in the temple of Hazor we see hands holding the Eastern Moon. Still
the people could be from the Nile Delta since the trading cities surely kept
enclaves even in Egypt. It was a necessity to have stores and to have rest place
and also rather grow their basic food. So they just established an enclave at
Alvhem - Skepplanda
3. Tyre and Sparta (Both Edom?) Linked!
Tyre was specialised in dyes. Seemingly they started a "joint venture" with
Sparta in Lakonia.
The hoplites = warriors loved the red colour of blood in their dress. Wound
would not be too visible on a red dress ... they were though guys. We can only
guess that Sidon hired hoplites from Sparta.
