'Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead
Or a yawing hole in a battered head
And the scuppers clogged with rotting red
And there they lay I damn me eyes
All lookouts clapped on Paradise
All souls bound just contrarywise, yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
I don't know what part of history you're referring to. The Germanic peoples of Sweden did engage in large scale migration down to the the shores of the Black Sea. But they were invaded by the Huns when that horde showed up two centuries later.If you read the anceint accounts it makes it seem like they must have been Mongolians or something, but n closer inspection you find that the Horse tribes of the central Russia who were Germanic peoples, they spoke Gothic which is a Germanic language.
The Hittites were Anatolian. What evidence links them to Germanic peoples?History actually supports the idea that the Germanic People started out in the Near east and moved north west. Evidence has linked the Hittite Empire with Germanic peoples.
That's because Thracians were Indo-Europeans. It doesn't make them Germanic.As for the Thracians, um that is the Greek name for the Germanic tribes. All the Genetic evidence and even the language they had is a root of both the Germanic and Slavic language groups.
As did the Hellenes, the Romans, the Celts... You're just looking at the origin of the Indo-European peoples in general when you go that far back.What happened is easy to trace, The Caucasian tribes of 12,000 years ago Who where not the only white people filled up all of the flat grassy lands of Russia, they became horse-men and farmers... The Germanic, Slavic, and Ulric peoples came from these groups.
That's the plot of the Aeneid. The founding of Rome is traditionally dated to 753 BC, some five centuries after the Trojan War.Just after the Fall of Troy an Asian Greek City State Rome was founded, many believe it was actually a Trojan colony.

The Greeks called Thracians so because it means wild and bloodthirsty (for their standarts)

I usually use the cooler sounding name.
I really dislike how in english Türkiye is written Turkey like the bird.
The word Türk originates from chinese and meant the mighty.
This is going to be the first thread in an online gaming forum that will be mentioned in an Anthropology thesis.
Called it first.
No point mentioning these bats, I thought. The poor bastard will see them soon enough.
