    Indeed, our common ancestral homeland would be somewhere on the Continent. That's why our epic poem is set in Scandinavia — it's about our earlier home that our ancestors left but with fond remembrance when they came to Britain.

    Of course, going back even further, we have a common ancestral homeland somewhere to the east and south — Thrace, or Thruthheim, perhaps, and before that, Asia Minor (like Snorri says), or perhaps in Central Asia, like the early IE linguists posited.

    And before that, it could be somewhere else entirely.

    We sure do like to travel, don't we!

    (It's a good thing that ancestral nationality is not linked to ancestral homelands!)

    I was basing it on current location and history, therefore due to your location and heritage, you are twice removed from the ancestral homeland of Denmark/Frisia/North Germany/Scandinavia.. If you get my jist?

    But yes, i meandered down ancestral homeland, as oppose to the thread topic of nation

    So, am i in my ancestral homeland then? Are we basing it on the positon status of people living in new world settlements?

    All i know is, My family has lived in England ever since records began, therefore.. ancestrally speaking... well, like you say, we can go back to the balkans or asia minor..difference is, we can identify greatly with latter movements(Germanic folkwanderung), but not with our earliest origins.

    Would you say that people tend to go back in their ancestral memory (as it were) no further than the previous mass migration? or no further than the beginning of record-keeping?


    All i know is, My family has lived in England ever since records began
    There is record in my family lists of where some lines came from before they crossed the North Sea. I don't know how credible those are, but they indicate the possibility of records predating the English settlement of Britain.
