PostSubject: Getae(Dacians) are Ghotic   Fri Apr 02, 2010 7:21 am

Paul Siding begins his history of Scandinavia by saying, “The present inhabitants of Denmark, as well as of Norway and Sweden, are successors of the enormous Gothic tribe formerly dwelling round about the Black Sea” (page 19, Scandinavian Races).

Notice that both the Svear and the Goths came from the area of the Black Sea. At the mouth of the Danube on the western shore is the area of Getae and Dacia in Roman times. According to Procopius, who wrote his history in the fifth century, Romans “say that the Goths are of the Getic race” (Book V. xxiv, 30).

The Getae are mentioned in the history of Herodotus (fifth century B.C.). In the translation by George Rawlinson, his brother Sir Henry gives this footnote: “The identity of the Getae with the Goths of later times is more than a plausible conjecture. It may be regarded as historically certain” (Vol. III, page 84, 1862 edition).

Jordanes, the best known Gothic historian, always speaks of the Getae and Goths as one people. He also calls them “Scythae.”

We find more evidence in other historical accounts. For example, “The Pictish Chronicle declares that the Scythians and Goths had a common origin” (page 216, The Races of Ireland and Scotland by W. C. Mackenzie).

The evidence also indicates that the Getae were the same kind of people as the Dacians. They both spoke the same language according to Strabo (7.3.13). Pliny says that the Getae were called Dacians by the Romans (Book IV, xxi, 80).

Duchesne, who collected the Norman chronicles in the seventeenth century, has no doubt whatever that the Normans were Dacians and consistently calls them by that name in his preface.
Dudo, who wrote the earliest history of the Normans in the tenth century, also had no doubt that they came from Scythia beyond the Danube. He also said they were Dacians.

Hmmm, so a small inaccuracy in RTW? Scythians and Dacians one faction?

No,not that all.Dacians and Scythians was 2 distinct Nations.They was neighbors,friends and allies.They share,trade all kind of goods between them,but special wepons.

In 105-106,when Romans attack Dacia,their last big conquest,they bring 13 legions,half of Roman Empire,who never have more then 22-23 Legions,in there whole history.They force,or paid 2 more tribes to attack Dacians same time.Marcomani(germanic tribe) and Boii(celtic tribe)..i think,tribes witch in past they live here in dacian land in good relation with dacians,but GOLD is GOLD.Well in this circumstances,Scythians by their own will,decided to send help to their good neighboors and attack on Danube romans cavalry ,but was only 2.000 eur 2.500 Scythians Archers cavalry.Dacians have 20.000 max. soldiers..spredd out in 8-9 citadels..each one with no more then 3-4.000 soldiers to stand in front of roman war machine.

Creative ,make Dacians = with..n00bs.,ugly,eyone who serch on web,see was 1 from 3 hard worriors nation who fight vs romans.

Only Big problem,is theat Herodot write this..GETAE become GHOTAE or GHOTIC ppl,who ammaizing they apears suddnley here in DAcian land arround 300 A.C.Dacians was conquer in 106.Roman colonizatted untill 270.so in 30 yeas..Daco-Romans..disapierd..and GHOTIC tribes apear.Theat suggest some history books.It is hard today to sey,half of europe have more to do with an CONQUERD(GETAE/GHOTAE-DACIANS) people then with an winer(romans) one.

Idea was like this.Dacians mix with some Scytians tribe.How.Romans colonist payd Svytians tribe and other to proetect roman empire borde.Hunic,Barbarian invasione come much early then books sed.Nomadic nation to move from Asia to Europe,need lots of years to do tehat.(BRITHIS AIR wasnt pressent:) ).So When a nation dacians mix with some scythians tribe,some celtic,2 germanic tribe wich are even today pressent here in romania(SECUII and SVABI)..GHOTIC nation apear.
