Dutch and South African History - ROBERT SEPEHR

Holland is a region and former province on the western coast of the Netherlands... a European country, bordering Germany to the East, and Belgium to the South, With a population numbering over 17 million, blessed with one of the most beautiful capital cities in the world, Amsterdam. The Netherlands is a constitutional monarchy, which was divided into 12 provinces, a number that is no coincidence. 

It grew to become one of the major economic and sea-faring powers in the world during the 17th century, which is known as the Dutch Golden Age, when many colonies were founded, including the Netherlands East Indies (currently called Indonesia) and New Amsterdam, which was later traded with the British and re-named as New York. 

The Dutch East India Company established its first outpost at Cape Town, South Africa, in 1652. Afrikaans is a West Germanic language spoken in South Africa, Namibia and, to a lesser extent, Botswana and Zimbabwe.

Archaic Admixture in Sub-Saharan Africans - ROBERT SEPEHR

Sub-Saharan Africa is, geographically, the area of the continent of Africa that lies south of the Sahara. The first large-scale study of ancient human DNA from sub-Saharan Africa opens a long-awaited window into the identity and origins of prehistoric populations.

Whole-genome sequences of Sub-Saharan tribal DNA shows that the ancestors of the hunter-gatherers interbred with one or more archaic human populations, and contributed archaic genetics that diverged from modern humans around 1.2 to 1.3 million years ago, possibly the now "extinct" Homo erectus, whose DNA is not shared by modern Asians or Caucasians (Europeans).

The Tribe of Dan - ROBERT SEPEHR

To the Germans he was known as Votan. To the Anglo-Saxons Woden. To the Norse and other Scandinavians, he was known as Odin. A Reuters News Agency report from Nov. 30, 2001: "The Viking god Odin may have been a real king who lived in what is now southern Russia 2,000 years ago, according to Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl. 

In The Hunt for Odin, Heyerdahl says his archaeological digs by the Sea of Azov in Russia backed evidence in 13th century sagas written by Snorre Sturlason that Odin was more than a myth. Odin was a king who lived around Azov before being driven out by the Romans and taking his followers to Sweden.

Ancient metal belt holders, rings and armbands dating from 100-200 AD found in excavations around the mouth of the Don River were almost identical to Viking equivalents found in Gotland, Sweden, some 800 years later, he said.

The various royal houses of English history: the Saxons, Danes, Normans, Tudors, Stuarts, Plantagenets, Hanoverians, Saxe-Coburgs, all lines blended and fused with Scottish royalty to form the modern House of Windsor, trace their bloodlines back to a common migration. The Encyclopedia Americana records the Scythians arrived in the region of South Russia “about 700 B.C.”

Herodotus wrote: “They [the Scythians] make no offerings of pigs, nor will they keep them in their country.” Since the Scythians not only refused to allow pigs to be used in sacrificial purposes, but also banned them entirely from their territory, it is evident that the Scythians did not eat the flesh of swine either.

Ancient Germanic History - ROBERT SEPEHR

The Hermann Monument commemorates a Germanic war chief named Arminius who famously led an alliance of Germanic tribes that ambushed and annihilated three Roman legions and their auxiliaries in the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in 9 AD. In AD 98, the Roman historian Cornelius Tacitus wrote a text called “About the Origin and Mores of the Germanic Peoples,” or Germania, as it came to be called. In the 1940's, the Germania was taught in German schools and widely celebrated as a comprehensive account of the ancient Germanic people. It describes a proud, brave and virtuous people, but The Germans were not one nation — Tacitus lists 50 tribes that were united to defeat Rome.
