"The Scythians" (Nordic Iranians)

Published & edited by Kenneth S. Doig

The Scythians
What the Kelts were to western Europe, the Scythians and their relatives became, at about the same time, to the treeless plains to the east.
Riding astride, wearing trousers, and sleeping in covered wagons, they spread rapidly over the grasslands of eastern Europe and western central-Asia, shifting so adroitly that Darius with his army could not catch them, and disappearing almost as rapidly from the face of eastern Europe as they had appeared.

"Some Common Features of Old Norse & German" by Óskar Guðlaugsson 2000

Published, edited, annotated (in red) & images added by Kenneth S. Doig

Some Common Features of Old-Norse & German

Casesystem:  ON and German have the same four cases, standard to Germanic case-languages, nominate, accusative, dative, and genitive. (there are relatively productive vestiges of the instrumental in OE, OHG, OSx; also rarer, far-less productive cases here and there in various older Gmc dialects, e.g., locative, vocative. Gothic had a productive vocative) They differ considerably in the usage of the latter two, though.

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



Part I: Their Origins and Prehistoryby Nick Griffin, M.A. (Hons.), Cantab.


"The whole nation is war-mad, both high-spirited and ready for battle, but otherwise simple, though not uncultured."-- Strabo, 1st century AD. geographer"Golden is their hair and golden their garb. They are resplendent in their striped cloaks, and their milk-white necks are circled with gold."-- Virgil, 1st century BC. poet

"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

Germanic paganism

Published, (not yet finished editing!) edited, formatted, annotations/commentary (in red) and certain images added by Kenneth S. Doig
(from Wikipedia)

Germanic paganism refers to the theology and religious practices of the Germanic peoples from the Iron Age until their christianization during the Medieval period. 

It has been described as being "a system of interlocking and closely interrelated religious worldviews and practices rather than as one indivisible religion" and as such consisted of "individual worshipers family-traditions and regional cults within a broadly consistent framework".

Germanic paganism took various forms in different areas of the Germanic world. The best documented version was that of 10th- and 11th-century Norse religion, although other information can be found from Anglo-Saxon and Continental Germanic sources.

More Fun with Swedish Girls? Functions of a German Heterostereotype

Published, edited, images added and commentary (in red) by Kenneth S. Doig

Personally, having been to Scandinavia  times and gaving lived in Gothenburg and Oslo, the women there are almost all beautiful. Tiger Wood's wife is a "plain Jane." I noticed that in nightclubs and bars, Danish girls were by far the most aggressive and sexual, closely followed by Norwegians. I have never picked up a girl in Sweden, Swedes are obsessed with the reputations and tend to be very respectable, but when they go! In thruth, they are no more promiscuous than American girls.

A study on Wodenism in England and Northern Europe

Introduction – Christianity and Wodensim

England is now claimed to be a multi-faith country, yet is for the most part still Christian or identifies with Christian values and the Ten Commandments. A system of belief that has held England through famine, pestilence and wars. 

Notice the horns (*Wodanaz- "Odin/Woden/Wuotan"-was usually depicted with Horns from the Nordic Bronze-Age to the Migration-Age), spear (one of the main symbols of *Wóðinaz was his spear that was cut from the worldtree) and noose (another of his major symbols). Notice also the similarities between Germanic and Celtic art in the earlier eras. (image- & caption-websource
