and your source(s) for all of this is?
Basically, it's common knowledge among the "indigenous" people in Scandinavia.
There are numerous clues, that should tip you off. First, there are two Viking eras ... both are closely tied to the Roman empire. Now, that should
be a real, real tip. The second, and probably the biggest clue ... should be that Nordic sagas, go head to head with what has been "tought" in
school. In these books, it's said that the As are Asian ... and that Odin took his people from Asia to Scandinavia. Blatantly ignored by most
scholars, but one that is quite clearly findings, as XIn Jiang in China, reveals scandinavian mummies. And DNA findings, sho migration to Asia, from
Asia over the black mountains, to Europe ... and from Europe and north, to Scandinavia. The fact, that ancient Icelandic text refers to the sea
between Denmark and Sweden as a river, not as a sea. Ignored by scholars, but findings on the sea floor show ancient settlements. Proving that these
seafloors, were once above the ocean level and inhabited.
What all this proves, is the indigenous people that left Scandinavia for Iceland. Pre-date the current populace, and their knowledge of the are, by
several thousand years.
There are numerous things you should look at, if you are interrested in this. But one thing you should absolutely ignore, and that is the "common"
rhetoric about it.
For example, if you want to have a connection betwen Scandivians and China. Ancient text refers to the lords, or tribal kings, as Dí. Commonly
thought to refer to Deiety, as it's origin. But the use of the word, resembles that of the word Dí in China, as Huang Dí ... or emperor, or Yellow
Lord. And as in Shang Di, or God.
Ignore the romantisation of the Vikings, look beyond it .. ask questions, like: Why did someone walk for 20 years, between every household in Iceland
to gather all ancients scrolls that existed, and take the to Denmark. Where, later, *only* the most ancient scrolls "burned" in a Fire, leaving
almost exclusively the "Christain" edited copies behind.
