The Nordic Bronze Age (also Northern Bronze Age) is the name given by Oscar Montelius to a period and a Bronze Age culture in Scandinavian pre-history, c. 1700-500 BC, with sites that reached as far east as Estonia. Succeeding the Late Neolithic culture, its ethnic and linguistic affinities are unknown in the absence of written sources
Admittedly we have found no writing but there certainly was a culture there, spread all across the North of Europe, now unknown who they were...
Remnants of the Bronze Age religion and mythology are believed to exist in Germanic mythology and Norse mythology; e.g., Skinfaxi and Hrímfaxi and Nerthus, and it is believed to itself be descended from an older "Indo-European" prototype.
Why do the 'Celts of the West' know the Olympian tale of Phaethon better than anyone else when it's suppose to be a Greek myth and what about the amber in that myth...
At these words, Dionysos rejoiced in hope of victory; then he questioned Hermes and wished to hear more of the Olympian tale which the Celts of the west know well:
Everything points to the Greeks having knowledge and history from a people in Northern and Western Europe, possibly via Apollo, since he is a twin and twins dominate Northern European myths, also the mention of his temple in England and that tributes get sent from Hyperborea to him.
Somewhere, somehow, the basis of Greek culture did not begin with the Greeks imo and that opinion of mine always has been, which might blind me to the truth but again, in my opinion, that is the truth and we have been blinded.
