The Sea Peoples were a confederacy of seafaring raiders of the second millennium BC who sailed into the eastern Mediterranean, caused political unrest, and attempted to enter or control Egyptian territory during the late 19th dynasty and especially during year 8 of Ramesses III of the 20th Dynasty. The Egyptian Pharaoh Merneptah explicitly refers to them by the term "the foreign-countries (or 'peoples') of the sea" (Egyptian n3 ḫ3s.wt n p3 ym) in his Great Karnak Inscription. Although some scholars believe that they invaded Cyprus, Hatti and the Levant, this hypothesis is disputed.
Runestones attest to voyages to locations such as Bath, Greece, Khwaresm, Jerusalem, Italy (as Langobardland), London, Serkland (i.e. the Muslim world), England, and various locations in Eastern Europe.

Really cool! So, would this be like one of the earliest known universal alphabets? I may have something really odd to add here. Would have they known this in the times of Abraham and also in the times Jesus was born?
In Norse mythology, Heimdallr is a god who possesses the resounding horn Gjallarhorn, owns the golden-maned horse Gulltoppr, has gold teeth, and is the son of Nine Mothers. Heimdallr is attested as possessing foreknowledge, keen eyesight and hearing, is described as "the whitest of the gods", and keeps watch for the onset of Ragnarök while drinking fine mead in his dwelling Himinbjörg, located where the burning rainbow bridge Bifröst meets heaven. Heimdallr is said to be the originator of social classes among mankind, once regained Freyja's treasured possession Brísingamen while doing battle in the shape of a seal with Loki, and Heimdallr and Loki are foretold to kill one another during the events of Ragnarök. Heimdallr is additionally referred to as Hallinskiði, Gullintanni, and Vindlér or Vindhlér.
In Norse mythology, Ragnarök (typically spelt Ragnarǫk in the handwritten scripts) is a series of future events, including a great battle foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures (including the gods Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr, and Loki), the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Afterward, the world will resurface anew and fertile, the surviving and reborn gods will meet, and the world will be repopulated by two human survivors. Ragnarök is an important event in the Norse canon, and has been the subject of scholarly discourse and theory.

Considering that when the Assyrians invaded in 740-725 B.C.E. in a series of raids and carried off alot of Israelites to every corner of the assyrian empire i'd say it's a pretty damned good chance some of them went on an adventure and got lost somewhere in Europe.
I've heard accounts that stonehenge may be connected to Daniels prophecy and that the 4 beasts are carved into the megaliths and the word "Brittish" in hebrew means "covenant keepers" or "oath keepers" which some people theorize the brittish and their american cousins are decended from Manasseh or Gad. The interesting thing is how similar the english language is to paleo-hebrew as well. Check this:

But what is even more interesting is that while the Runes are supposed to reference trees and Norse Gods, there is also one rune letter for Ash...we know one of the descendants of Noah, called Ashkenaz, settled in Europe and is the basis for Ashkenazi Jew, or the Jewish person living in Europe.
