BOOKREVIEW : "THE ORIGIN OF THE ANGLO-SAXON-RACE" (1906) BY THOMAS Wm SHORE


THE TRADITIONAL, SIMPLIFIED VIEW
OF THE ANGLO-SAXON CONQUEST

 OF BRITAIN c. 450 AD

PUBLISHED, FORMATTED & EDITED BY K.S.DOIG
MEDIEVAL MAP OF DENMARK. SOUTHERN
SWEDEN WAS NOT SWEDEN BUT ONE OF
THE EARLIEST PARTS OF DENMARK

PREFACE
BY K.S.DOIG

The author theories are not new, it would make sense that there would be more tribes than just the traditional three, "the Angles, Saxons and Jutes". It seems that all three of these appellations were "umbrella" terms for other sibling-tribes of kindred blood, institutions, culture, religion and speech. The "sibling-tribes" were of the same ethnic nation but often had formed other polities, kingdoms and states.

BADUHENNA

Baduhenna

Published by Kenneth S. Doig

In Germanic paganism, Baduhenna is a goddess. Baduhenna is solely attested by Tacitus' Annals where Tacitus records that a grove in Frisia was dedicated to her, and that near this grove 900 Roman prisoners were killed in 28 CE.
The first part of the goddess' name, Badu-, may be cognate to Proto-Germanic *badwa- meaning "battle." The second portion of the name -henna may be related to -henae, which appears commonly in the names of matrons. Rudolf Simek states that, due to this etymology, Baduhenna appears to be a goddess of war, and points out that sacred groves are commonly associated with the Germanic peoples.
