Italo-Celtic


Published, edited, formatted, any annotations (in red) & images added by Kenneth S. Doig
(Wikipedia)

In historical linguistics, Italo-Celtic is a grouping of the Italic and Celtic branches of the Indo-European language-family on the basis of features shared by these two branches and no others. 

These are usually considered to be innovations, which are likely to have developed after the breakup of Proto-Indo-European or PIE.

It is also possible that some of these are not innovations, but shared

Peoples of Caledonia

Peoples of Caledonia 
If western Europe is barbaric, then Caledonia is downright primitive. Much of the land is untouched wilderness. The scattered inhabitants lives in tiny villages or isolated farmsteads. The cities are nothing more than fortified centers with populations of a few hundred. Caledonia is inhabited by five different peoples: Picts, Scots, Britons, Angles, and Northmen.


The Picts
The Picts are the oldest inhabitants of Caledonia, which derives its name from one of their ancient tribes, the Caledonii, who dominated the area when the Romans first arrived. The Picts are a small, dark (there are so many contradicting descriptions of the Pictish phenotype. Many reputable ancient Graeco-Roman

Kelts:From Proto-Indo-Europeans (kin to the Skyths, Massagetae, Italics) to Proto-Celts to the founding fathers of most of Europe

"Celts": If the name means anything to the average American, it probably calls to mind a parade in Boston on St. Patrick's Day, when even the beer is dyed green. 
Beyond a vague notion that the Irish, Scots, and Welsh share a romantic common heritage in some way different from the English whose language they mainly use, the Celts lie forgotten and irrelevant in the mists of time.



Such ignorance is one of the symptoms of a race on the verge of collective suicide, for those with no knowledge of, or pride in, their forefathers are no more likely to have any concern for future generations of their kinfolk either.
Yet the Celts are regarded by historians as "the fathers of Europe." Genetically as well as culturally they played a major part in laying the foundations for the great achievements of the White race. 
                                 
Just as important, many of the mistakes they made which condemned them to defeat and collapse contain lessons today for those striving to save our race from sinking forever into a sea of color, ignorance, and eternal

Early Germanic (Scando-Teutonic) peoples


c. 1 AD
  
PUBLISHED, EDITED, IMAGES ADDED & COMMENTARY (IN RED) BY KENNETH S. DOIG
(Encyclopædia Britannica)

Germanic peoples, also called Teutonic Peoples, any of the Indo-European speakers of Germanic languages.


The origins of the Germanic peoples are obscure. During the late Bronze-Age, they are believed to have inhabited southern Sweden, the Danish peninsula, and northern Germany between the Ems River on the west, the Oder River on the east, and the Harz Mountains on the south. 


PROTO-GERMANIA C. 100 BC
The Vandals, Gepidae, and Goths migrated from southern Sweden in the closing centuries BC and occupied the area of the southern Baltic coast roughly between the Oder on the west and the Vistula River on the east. 

At an early date there was also migration toward the south and west at the expense of the Celtic peoples who then inhabited much of western Germany. 

The Celtic Helvetii, for example, who were confined by the Germanic peoples to the area that is now Switzerland in the 1st century BC  had once extended as far east as the Main River.

By the time of Julius Caesar, Germans were established west of the Rhine River and toward the south had reached the Danube River.

Germanic tribes are readily identifiable based on their common linguistic and ethnic origins. Germanic tribes first formed in Northern Europe, and subsequently migrated throughout Europe, spreading their language and culture while assimilating themselves within varying other tribes to become a dominant society.

In mixing with local populations, Germanic tribes helped to comprise early history for varying regions by laying down the foundations for future nation-states and countries that formed as a result of Germanic-tribe migration throughout Europe.

Haplogroups as evolutionary markers of cognitive ability

A reader emails a link (pdf) to a recent paper from Rindermann:

Studies investigating evolutionary-theories on the origins of national differences in intelligence have been criticized on the basis that both national cognitive-ability measures and supposedly evolutionarily informative proxies (such as latitude and climate) are confounded with general-developmental status.

"Another nail in the coffin of the Iberian-Irish myth".

Published by Kenneth S. Doig 
 
Within the last few months, the genetic genealogy community has placed a new SNP (L21 / rs11799226) on the Y chromosome phylogenetic tree downstream of the most frequent western European haplogroup (R1b). Preliminary results suggest the overwhelming majority of Irish R1b carry the mutation, while L21 is absent in the Iberian samples and subclades tested so far. R1b from England and continental northwestern Europe seem to be split between L21-derived and L21-ancestral.

It's still early and I'd like to see more data, but I think L21 (and thus the direct male ancestor of the majority of the Irish) most likely originated in northwestern Europe. The supposed link between the Irish and Iberians was built on the high frequency of R1b Y-DNA in both regions. The autosomal and mtDNA data never supported any sort of special or close relationship between "Celts" and Basques; it's now clear that Y-DNA doesn't, either.

MYTHS OF BABYLONIA & ASSYRIA (PREFACE, INTRODUCTION & CHAPTER I)



PUBLISHED BY KENNETH S. DOIG
By Donald A. Mackenzie (websource)


Preface
This volume deals with the myths and legends of Babylonia and Assyria, and as these reflect the civilization in which they developed, a historical narrative has been provided, beginning with the early Sumerian Age and concluding with the periods of the Persian and Grecian Empires. Over thirty centuries of human progress are thus passed under review.

During this vast interval of time the cultural influences emanating from the Tigro-Euphrates valley reached far-distant shores along the intersecting avenues of trade, and in consequence of the periodic and widespread migrations of peoples who had acquired directly or indirectly the leavening elements of Mesopotamian civilization.

Improved variants of the Kurgan hypotheses fit many facts, but what they don't do is explain why the Proto-Indo-Europeans expanded at the expense of neighboring

WHY ARE MEN, GENERALLY, MORE ATTRACTED TO BLONDE WOMEN?

"Carole Jahme shines the cold light of evolutionary psychology on everyday life. This week: The allure of blonde women":

Caucasian blondes are usually slightly higher in oestrogen than brunettes and are likely to exhibit other infantile sexually selected traits (indicating low levels of testosterone) that are considered desirable by males, for example finer facial features, smaller nose, smaller jaw, pointed chin, narrow shoulders, smooth skin and less body hair, and infantile behaviour such as higher energy levels and playfulness. [. . .] Blond hair in males does not correlate with oestrogen levels as it does in females
