    Celto-Germanic Hill Forts

    Berg=Hill & Burg/Borg/Borough/By/Bo/Booth/Abode=Fort

    There's an obvious relationship between the two, including the phrase "King of the Mountain", perhaps as By-Rig or Bo-Rough. There were many By/Bo farms and farmers, in the foothills surrounding the Burgs up on the Bergs, forming a Bunde.

    Furthermore, the words for citizen, farmer and association:
    Burgess
    Bauer/Boer/Bonde
    Bunde/Band

    The proto-Indo-European root word means life, as in Bio, Biology, Biography, etc. I'm convinced that the word for cattle, i.e. Bos, as in Bos Taurus, is related, in the farming sense of Bo/By above. A Burg would be the market for cattle raised by the Boer/Bauer/Bond.

    Boheim and Bayern seem to be the home of these terms, making the Boii tribe ancestral to both Germanic and Celtic. The hill forts or oppidum, said to be Celtic, only have an indigenous name in Germanic. Of course, this is similar to Germanic Gard becoming passed off as Balto-Slavic Grad. Therefore, the La Tene and Hallstatt culture are the basis of both Germanic and Celtic.

    Due to the Balto-Slavic nature of Bohemia, alongside Germanic Bavaria, one wonders if Celtic is perhaps ancestral to both Germanic and Balto-Slavic, or at least all have a common Central European origin. The European heartland would have to be in Germany, Austria and Czechia. It's probably the case that R1a & R1b have their split at the borders of Satem Bohemia and
    Centum Bavaria.

    I'm curious why the Hindus hold cows sacred in a different fashion from other Indo-Europeans. We eat them and our economy is based off of them, even though the cow Audhumla is at the Ginnungagap in the sagas. From Audhumla came Buri and son Bor, whose wife Bestla also all appears to have the same word root with them, in their names.

    Runes also originated from this region.

    In English they are called 'motte and bailey' castles. At least, they are similar:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motte-and-bailey_castle

    "One suggestion is that these castles were built particularly in order to protect against external attack – the Angevins, it is argued, began to build them to protect against the Viking raids, and the design spread to deal with the attacks along the Slav and Hungarian frontiers. Another argument is that, given the links between this style of castle and the Normans, who were of Viking descent, it was in fact originally a Viking design, transported to Normandy and Angers."
