Introduction
Many people have questioned who the English really are and where they come from. This timeline sets out to answer that. The English are a Germanic race of people. 


Engles (sic, read Angles), Jutes and Saxons. It finds the English to be a very old people indeed. It explains some of the mysteries about the origins of the ethnic English. And tells of where some of the ancient symbolism and old myths comes from. 

The White Dragon, Woden (Wotan,) (from Proto-Germanic "PGmc", *Wōđanaz or *Wōđinaz)  and the Steadfast sword. It takes about 20 minutes to read. I suggest that it will be a valuable read indeed.

The First English and their ancient origins – a Scythian race? (Scythian or, better yet,'Skythian', should be, if one wants to be somewhat linguistically historically more accurate, pronounced /SKITH-ee-uhn/, the /-th-/ being the voiceless-dental spirant, [IPA, theta/, i.e., an aspirated voiceless alveolar spirant, virtually identical to the English word's /t/ in "top". In ancient Greek, theta was not pronounced as it is today, both in modern-Greek & English.
[{text in green, from Wikipedia} Theta (uppercase Θ, lowercase θ or cursive ϑ; Ancient Greek: θῆτα, thē̂ta, [tʰɛ̂ːta]; Modern: θήτα, thī́ta, [ˈθita]; UK /ˈθtə/, US /ˈθtə/) is the eighth letter of the Greek alphabet, derived from the Phoenician letter teth . In the system of Greek numerals it has a value of 9.]K.Doig) The source stories of both the English and Scandinavian cultures claim that the Kings of both peoples originated from families which came out of ancient Black Sea/Macedonian tribes. Collectively they are known as the people of Allfather from the Middle Enclosure. The English stories claim descent from ancient Troy.

THE ANCIENT RUSSIAN STEPPE : Kievian Rus : Varangians

Published by Kenneth S. Doig




The Varangians
The type of Ships used by the early Volga Vikings
The Varangians or Varyags sometimes referred to as Variagians, were Vikings or Norsemen, who went eastwards and southwards through what is now Russia, Belarus and Ukraine mainly in the 9th and 10th centuries. According to the Kievan Rus' Primary Chronicle, compiled in about 1113, groups of Varangians included the Swedes, the Rus, the Normans, the Angles and the Gotlanders. However, due largely to geographic considerations, most of the Varangians who traveled and settled in the eastern Baltic, Russia and lands to the south came from the area of modern Sweden.
Engaging in trade, piracy and mercenary activities, they roamed the river systems and portages of Gardariki, reaching the Caspian Sea and Constantinople. Having settled Aldeigja (Ladoga) in the 750's, Scandinavian colonists were probably an element in the early ethnogenesis of the Rus' people, and likely played a role in the formation of the Rus' Khaganate. The  (Varyags, in Old East Slavic) are first mentioned by the Primary Chronicle as having exacted tribute from the Slavic and Finnic tribes in 859. It was the time of rapid expansion of the Vikings in Northern Europe; England began to pay Danegeld in 859, and the Curonians of Grobin faced an invasion by the Swedes at about the same date.

The Åland Islands are governed according to the Act on the Autonomy of Åland and international treaties. These laws guarantee the islands' autonomy from Finland, which has ultimate sovereignty over them, as well as a demilitarized status. The Government of Åland, or Landskapsregering, answers to the Parliament of Åland, or Lagting, in accordance with the principles of parliamentarism.
