Introduction by Yair Davidiy.
The following series of articles briefly summarizes a work by S. Gusten Olson, "The Incredible NORDIC ORIIGNS," England, 1985.
The author at one stage contacted us, sent us a copy of his work and we corresponded. After that we lost touch. Neither his name nor his work seem to be present on the Internet.
We think this work and the sources quoted in it to be potentially of value. It has much of interest. We do not know whether the work is still covered by Copyright and even if it is whether or not the author would object to us revealing too much of the contents.
We have therefore tried to keep this summary to its bare essentials.
Claims that the Church in Scandinavia confiscated many old books and documents concerning the early history of the people.
Conventional Chronology misuses archaeological findings to claim there were Stone, Bronze, and Iron Ages where they were actually coeval.
"Peoples with varying levels of culture lived side by side."
Early inhabitants of Scandinavia were Goths but these were different from the later Goths. The early Goths are to be equated with GUTI a fair-haired people who once lived in Ancient Assyria. They were also known as Scythians.
The Goths were in Scandinavia shortly after the Deluge.
The Lapps were once not only in Scandinavia but throughout Western Europe. The Picts of Scotland were an offshoot.
Goths expelled the Lapps, or enslaved them, or co-existed alongside them, depending on what was possible.
The Phoenicians of Canaan were also in the area. The early religion of Scandinavia was Canaanite Baal-worship, which entailed adoration of the sun.
Denmark was inhabited by Giants (Saxo Grammaticus). Brings Ancient Sources equating the Phoenicians with Canaanites.
Quotes Messenius and an Icelandic authority, Arngrim Jonae, that the Cananites were in Northern lands.
Religious practices, images, and even skeletons correspond to those of the Canaanites or Assyrians.
So too the Herps in Italy and findings in Ireland.
Beltane (sacred "Fire of Bel") practices in England, Scotland, Ireland, and Sweden) derived from baal-worship.
Dalin (1700s) claimed that in Sweden they originally worshipped One God known as Odin identical in his attributes to the God of Israel.
The Lapps had both Canaanite and Hebrew practices and spoke a language similar to Phoenician and/or Hebrew.
[Recent DNA studies show that the mtDNA [transmitted by females] of the Lapps is identical to that of the Berbers of North Africa who also claim, and are attributed, Canaanite origins! ]
The Lapps interacted intensely with the Fins and borrowed their language forgetting their own.
Arngrim Jonas believed the Lapps were descended from Canaanites.
There was also a race of Dwarves who were either part of the Lapps or dwelt alongside them.
Originally Scandinavia was populated by a broad-headed people who were replaced by a long-headed one except in Denmark where many of the former stock remained.
Broad-heads were brunette types, long-heads were fair and Nordic.
The Lapps have similar physical build (long arms, short legs) to the Mongolians but without the slanted eyes and flat nose.
In historical writings Lapps are often confused with Fins. Many Lapps look similar to Swedes.
Fins do not look like Mongolians though they are sometimes reported as such.
Climate changes, cold period, ca. 500 BCE. Northern Sweden was drastically depopulated, population of central and southern Sweden reduced.
Finland was sparsely populated. Finish tribes before moving to Finland had dwelt alongside both Baltic and Teutonic peoples, Sweden was partially submerged by the Sea.
Fins called themselves "Suomi" connoting "lake."
Scandinavia also known as Codanovia.
Phoenicians in the British Isles and the North Sea area.
Amber trade routes by sea and overland between the Baltic and the Aegean (Greek) world.
High cultural level of Northern Europe.
Runic writing, also found in Britain, and Denmark, associated with the Goths.
Roman incursions in the Black Sea region were paralleled by migrations to mountainous areas of Scandinavia,
Fins migrate to Finland ca. 400 BCE. Came from the east, from the interior of Russia. Fin migration lasted ca. 1,000 years.
Gelones of Scythia identified with Goths.
Vodiner migrate to Sweden, of Scythian stock, considered a holy people, worshipped one God.
The NEURI were a mixture of Hebrews, Scythians, and Greeks. They joined onto both the Vodiner and the Fins. Moved into coastal areas of Finland and Sweden.
Peoples of the area had a New Year that began on March-1, and they kept the Hebrew Sabbath.
Quotes sources from the 1700s [O. Rudbeck (the younger), Bjorner, Hogstrom, Lagerbring] that show similarities between the Lapp, Finish, and Hebrew languages. Villages in Finland have place-names similar to those found in Persia.
Lapps kept the Sabbath on Saturday more than on Sunday.
Western Fins may have been ruled by a Teutonic-speaking people.
111 BCE and 106 BCE Cimbri from Jutland, Denmark, with 300,000 men attempt invasion of Roman areas (Gaul and Rome).
Assyrian bronze sword found in southeastern Sweden.
Despite mixed origins claims that little intermarriage took place.
Says that Nordics are not Germans.
