The Alans, or the Alani, occasionally termed Alauni or Halani, were a group of Sarmatian tribes, nomadic-pastoralists of the 1st millennium AD who spoke an Eastern-Iranian (in the same Indoeuropean macrophylum as Germanic, Celtic, Italic, Slavic, Hellenic, etc.) language which derived from Skytho-Sarmatian and which in turn evolved into modern Ossetian.

The Ancient Celtiberian World



TARANIS, CELTIC THUNDERGOD, COUNTERPART TO GERMANIC GOD
THUNOR (THOR & DONAR). THE SYLLABLES "TARAN" IS COGNATE TO
GERMANIC "THUNOR"- GRIMM'S LAW ORIGINAL INDO-EUROPEAN 'T'
BECOMES 'TH' (Þ) IN PROTO- & EARLY GMC, (TU=THU/THOU), SO WE
GET SOMETHING LIKE *THIRAN, VOWELS ARE MORE FLUID, CHANGE
OFTEN, THEN TO "THURAN, THEN THRU METATHESIS, SWITCHINHG
THE ORDER OF LETTERS/SOUNDS, LIKE PEOPLE OFTEN SAY "PURTTY"
FOR "PRETTY", IT BECAME *THUNR THEN A GLIDE-VOWEL WAS
INSERTED TO EASE PRONUNCIATION, FINALLY HE GET "THUNOR"
PGmc *THUNORAZ OR *THUNRAZ, "-AZ" IS JUST A GRAMMATICAL
CASE & GENDER-MARKER, NOT REALLY PART OF THE ACTUAL WORD

Celts, living on the central mesetas, or table lands, in direct contact with the Iberians, adopted many Iberian cultural fashions, including wheel-made pottery, rough stone sculptures of pigs and bulls, and the eastern Iberian alphabet on coins and inscriptions, such as the bronze plaque from Botorrita (Saragossa), but they did not organize themselves into urban settlements until the 3rd century BC. 


The Celt-Iberians were tribes of mixed Iberian and Celtic stock who inhabited an area in present north-central Spain from the 3rd century BC onward . These Celtiberians inhabited the hill country between the sources of the Tagus (Tajo) and Iberus (Ebro) rivers, including most of the modern province of Soria and much of the neighboring provinces of Guadalajara and Teruel.

THE VIKINGS




Published by Kenneth S. Doig


Vikings were the fierce the ship-borne warriors and traders of Norsemen (literally, men from the north) who originated in Scandinavia and raided the coasts of the British Isles and mainland Europe as far east as the Volga River in Russia from the late 8th–11th century. This period (generally dated 793–1066) is often referred to as the Viking Age. The term Viking has also denoted entire populations of Viking Age Scandinavia and their settlements, as an expanded meaning (see below: Etymology of Viking).

Famed for their longships, Vikings, in three centuries, founded settlements along the coasts and rivers of mainland Europe, Ireland, Normandy, the Shetland, Orkney, and Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland, Newfoundland circa 1000. They reached south to North Africa and east to Russia and Constantinople, as looters, traders, or mercenaries. Vikings under Leif Ericson, heir to Erik the Red, reached North America, with putative expeditions to present-day Canada in the 10th century. Viking voyages decreased with the introduction of Christianity to Scandinavia in the late 10th and 11th century.

BRIEF OVERVIEW OF GERMANIC SPAIN

Published, edited, formatted and images added by Kenneth S. Doig

People
Iberian Peninsula c. 500 AD

Ethnic groups  

Spain has been invaded and inhabited by many different peoples. The peninsula was originally settled by groups from North Africa and western Europe, including the Iberians, Celts, and Basques. Throughout antiquity it was a constant point of attraction for the civilizations of the eastern Mediterranean. From c. 1100 bc the Phoenicians, the Greeks, and the Carthaginians began to establish settlements and trading posts, especially on the eastern and southern coasts. These outsiders found a mosaic of peoples, collectively known as the Iberians, who did not have a single culture or even share a single language. A kingdom called Tartessus, which flourished between 800 and 550 bc, ruled much of the valley of the Guadalquivir. Elsewhere political organization was less sophisticated, consisting of a number of city-states in the coastal regions and of clans in the interior and the northwest.

The blond singer is cute and she looks like a Hallstatt/Swedish-type-Nordic. The entire population is Nordic, but it's not just light hair, eyes and skin that makes a person Nordic, it is also facial structure, head shape, cranial dimensions, cephalic indices, etc. A person could be a Germanic Hallstatt-Nordic and have brown hair and eyes, about 5 % of pure ethnic Hallstatt-swedes have such coloring. Don't forget
