    Seeing as my reasoning has come further into question, I will repeat here what I have repeated elsewhere:

    This is all being written in the view that the Leif Eriksson was not the first from the...

    Isn't this a little counterproductive? You pick a day to celebrate Norwegian-American heritage but you don't make an effort to remember the original settlers themselves, one's own ancestors? Why not...

    It depends what you mean by "cultured". Seems a few in this thread accuse Canada as having less culture than the U.S. or Europe. My response would be that these individuals do not know much about...

    According to the above quote, the choosing of the date doesn't even have anything to do with historical events, it has to do with far later Scandinavian settlements in the United States of America. ...

    Haha, reminds me of the seal situation up here. People who have never really lived in here tend to support the whole McCartney view of things, and don't understand the situation at all. It reminds me...

    I never understood this holiday among Americans. If Americans wish to create a day on which to honour their ancestry, why not create one that is historically and geographically accurate?

    Must be some strange kind of black bears and fishers you have in those parts:P

    Out where I'm currently living probably the biggest "threat" are the Newfoundland black bear (slightly bigger than...

    Not matter your theories, we are speaking of etymology here. Belgae is not etymologically connected to walh (foreigner), but is rather derived from a Celtic root. Similarly, Bulgar is neither derived...

    Depends on the season. The past few summers I've been working outdoors so in an average day I'd spend between 6 to 8 hours outdoors. In the winter less so, though I do like to wander around when I...

    The subject of pre-Christian Germanic religion has been one that I've had quite a close relationship with for years now. As such, I've read quite a few modern texts on the subject and, honestly, from...

    The name Belgium comes from the Celtic tribe, or rather confederation of tribes, of the Belgae that inhabited the region during Caesar's conquest. I highly doubt they would have named themselves...

    There are a few issues that need to be addressed here. I think, first, the context in which the sagas were written need to be discussed.

    The cultural environment of medieval Iceland was one that...

    Tacitus himself never visited Germania, and Germania was based on a now lost work that preceded his own. What needs to be understood about Tacitus is that his motivations for writing the text were...

    I have been living this way for many years now, though mostly it has to do with the foods I eat and general consumption. My family is mostly made up of farmers so it was not difficult for me when...

    I was actually wondering if anyone had seen it on any early Germanic artifacts as was suggested by the original poster. However, thank you for the tip, I will look into it further to see if it...

  17. Re : Angelo-Saxon invasions

    Now you've jumped ahead several hundred years ;) No, nothing to do with the American War of Independance.
  18. Re : Re: Re : Angelo-Saxon invasions

    That is quite incorrect. The Normans penetrated the English aristocracy quite thoroughly. By Longshanks time it would be difficult to say that the aristocracy could not be called "Anglo-Norman". That...

    The Normans were the descendants of Danes settled in northern Neustrie following Viking invasions along the Seine ending in 911 when Hrolfr le Marcheur was given possession of the land which came to...
  20. Re : Angelo-Saxon invasions

    To put it simply the English aristocracy of the Central to Late Middle Ages was Anglo-Norman, the majority of the Anglo-Danish aristocracy fell at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The people of...

    Important!  Re : Re: Question for canadians

    If Labrador and Northern Newfoundland followed in Quebec's suite, so would St John's and the Avalon area.
