#4. Arthur & Rosalind Eedle: "THE TIN ISLANDS"

"The island he [Diodorus Siculus] called Ictis is none other than St.Michael's Mount, just offshore to Marazion in Cornwall, and exactly fits Diodorus's description. In 1969, in the little harbour of the island, skin divers found a stone bowl with a handle, which was subsequently identified by the British Museum as Phoenician, - and dating as far back as 1500 B.C. When visiting Truro recently, we were able to see the massive H-shaped tin ingot that was dredged from the St Mawes harbour in 1812, weighing 158 pounds. The shape indicated that they were designed to be carried one on each side of a horse for transportation, as mentioned above."

#7. Quotation Concerning Spain and the Phoenicians

"During the 8th and 7th centuries [i.e. 700s and 600s BCE], the Phoenicians radically transformed the economy of Southern Spain through Gadir (Cadiz) and an extensive series of other colonies, extracting enough silver to leave 20 million tons of silver slag on the countryside (Frankenstein 1979). Copper, gold, lead, and other metals useful as currency were also exported (Aubet 2002). By-products of this extractive industry included environmental degradation, deforestation, and stratification within the local Iberian society. The Spanish hinterland was incorporated into the Phoenician extractive economy and was reorganized toward intensive mining and smelting of silver ore for export on Phoenician ships."

#7. Brit-Am Historical Research Conclusions Strengthened
(a) From Scythia to Germany to Britain
(b) More on Phoenicians in Scandinavia

(a) From Scythia to Germany to Britain
The Thuringians were in effect Tervingi Goths who migrated from the Black Sea area to Central Germany. This occurred over a period of time but culminated in the 400s CE. They were federated with Warnians (Varni), Anglians (Angli) and Suebians (Nordsuavi), and other groups who evidently migrated with them and shortly afterwards participated in the Anglo-Saxon invasions of England.

b) More on Phoenicians in Scandinavia
The Scandinavian Bronze Age started very suddenly about 1800 BC (it is claimed?? Brit-Am would place it about 900 years later) with a very high culture and the artifacts deteriorated in quality over the centuries. The earlier artifacts are almost identical with similar finds from the Phoenician and the pre-hellenic or Achaean culture in Greek Mycaene. This is interpreted as the Phoenicians established trading colonies in Scandinavia and introducing their culture and gods. The god Baal (later in Scandinavian mythology known as Balder) would have been introduced at that time.
