Sterik was sin nŰme aend thahrop vr sina dÍda was gr‚t.

Tha stjurargvngon th‚ nÍi tha DÍnnemarka f‚ra, thÍr n‚mon hja Wodin mith sin wigandlikalandwÍr in. [p. 76] WÓnd was rum aend alsa wÍron hja an en ‚merÓng (27) to SkÍnland.

Uit deze tocht is degeschiedenis van Wodin ontstaan, die op de burchten gegrift is, en hier isuitgeschreven. Aan de Aldergamude daar ruste een oude zeekoning, Sterik waszijn naam, en de roep zijner daden was groot. Deze oude rob had drie neven;Wodin de oudste woonde te Lumkamakia bij de Eemude in Oostflyland bij zijnouders. Eenmaal was hij heerman geweest. Teunis en Inka waren zeestrijders, enjuist nu bij hunnen oom aan de Aldergamude. Toen nu de jonge krijgers bijelkaar kwamen, kozen ze Wodin tot hun heerman of koning, en de zeekampers kozenTeunis tot hun zeekoning en Inka tot hun schout bij nacht. De zeelieden voerentoen naar de Denemarken. Daar namen ze Wodin met zijn krijgshaftige landweer[77] aan boord. De wind was ruim, en zo waren ze in een ommezien in Schoonland.

12. From this expedition the history of Wodin sprang, which is inscribed on the burghs, and is here copied: 13. At Aldergamude there lived an old sea-king whose name was Sterik, and whose deeds were famous. This old fellow had three nephews. Wodin,the eldest, lived at Lumkamakia, near the Emude, in Astflyland, with hisparents. He had once commanded troops. Tunis and Inka were naval warriors, andwere just then staying with their father at Aldergamude. 14. When the youngwarriors had assembled together, they chose Wodin to be their commander orking, and the naval force chose Tunis for their sea-king and Inka for their admiral. The navigators then sailed for Denamark, where they took on boardWodin and his valiant host. 15. The wind was fair, so they arrived immediatelyin Skenland.

I am pretty sure, that Lumkamakia is on the northwest shore of Heligoland (= Holy Land), which was Frisian territory. The exact place is Lummenfelsen, 60 metres high cliffs. You may find the place and beautiful photoshots on Google Maps Helgoland, Lummenfelsen. Helgoland was the religious epicentrum of the old Frisians. Helgoland is northeast of the Eems mouth between the rivers Eems and Weser. It played an important role in the Viking times. The origin of the name Lumkamakja has not yet completely established. The text shows, that Lumkamakja was on a short distance from both Danmark and Scandinavia. Alcuin reports, that St. Willebrord tried to baptize the people to the Christian faith:

Alcuin (735-804), The Life of Willebrord , written ca . 796: Now whilst this energetic preacher of the Word was pursuing his journey he came to a certain island on the boundary between the Frisians and the Danes, which the people of those parts call Fositeland,[l] after a god named Fosite, whom they worship and whose temples stood there. This place was held by the pagans in such great awe that none of the natives would venture to meddle with any of the cattle that fed there nor with anything else, nor dare they draw water from the spring that bubbled up there except in complete silence. On this island the man of God wasdriven ashore by a storm and waited for some days until the gale died down and fair weather made it possible to set sail again. He set little store by thesuperstitious sacredness ascribed to the spot, or by the savage cruelty of theking, who was accustomed to condemn violators of the sacred objects to the most cruel death. Willibrord baptized three persons in the fountain in the name of the Blessed Trinity and gave orders that some of the cattle should beslaughtered as food for his company. When the pagans saw this they expected that the strangers would become mad or be struck with sudden death. Noticing,however, that they suffered no harm, the pagans, terror & shy; stricken and astounded,reported to the king what they had witnessed.

[1] Fositeland orHeligoland.

PS. Alcuin was a coaevus of Liko.

Menno, if this is the true scenario, then Wodin was born on the top of a cliff, lol.

Where was "Ast-flyland", or "Oostvlieland"?

If you go back to Tacitus' time, it were the Chaucians living near the Ems or "Ee-mude".

I did not claim to be "scientific" or practice "etymology".

That jol, jolen, jolig, jolijt etc. are related could not be more obvious, not only because of the common root, but also because of their association with celebration.

I suppose that is not something Knul knows very much about.

Ast-Flyland reaches from the rivier Fly to the Weser as has been indicated in the OLB pag.4-5. West-Flyland reaches in the OLB from the river Fly to the Sandfal, Sincfal, Schelde, but is also divided in West-Flyland and South-Flyland.

I'd like to see a quote from the OLB that proves your point.

An Anglo-Saxon boat would have been about 25m long and could carry around 40 people. It was driven by oars and did not have a sail

This is a wonderful reconstruction of an Anglo-Saxon ship based on the Sutton Hoo excavation. The ship at Sutton Hoo was found buried underneath the earth with an extensive tomb and treasures hidden within, showing the immense significance of ships, trade and travel to this past culture. The Anglo-Saxons were excellent sailors who used the hwæl-weg (whale-way/ocean) on a daily basis. Can you imagine the man-power it would take to row this large, hand-made ship?

Bird flight: it is known the Vikings had ravens onboard on their travels on the open ocean. To know if land was near they released the ravens, and if they didn't come back, land was near (and they very probably already did before they ever heard of Noach, lol). Even the ancient Indian (= from India) sailors used crows for the same purpose.

The sacrificial deposits at the Nydam Mose were excavated by Conrad Engelhardt between 1859 and 1863. The largest ship was lifted on 18th August 1863.

"In Nydam Bog an enourmous amount of iron swords, lances and spears was found - the military legacy of well-organised troops from the Scandinavian area. Three large seaworthy rowing boats, only one of which was preserved intact, testify to the maritime character of this find close to the Baltic coast."
(Gebühr, M., (2001), Nydam and Thorsberg: Iron Age Places of Sacrifice, page 6)

The Nydam Boat is the oldest preserved early Germanic deep-sea rowing boat.

The size is unusual for such an early boat

Length : c. 23 m*
  
Beam : c. 3.5 m*
  
Height midship : 1m

Water displacement : 7.8 tons and 1 ton ballast
  
Crew : c. 45 men including 30 oarsmen

Dendrochronological examination shows that the ship was built c. 320 and that it was built somewhere in "the western or the middle region of the Baltic" (ibid, page 35).

"Boats of this type presumably served military purposes rather than the transport of goods. A relatively high speed (max. about 8 knots) independent of the wind, the manoeuvrability in narrow bays, if necessary without having to turn, and a relatively large crew made the vessel suitable for swift ventures along hostile coasts" (ibid, page 35).

So Jol in it's forms in the OLB does indicate it means 'wheel'.

Could this word be the original form of VIGIL that was in Latin, that gol came out as feast-from vigil (Latin)? I think it works.

juul or hjol/jol/gol as wheel - it would go into Latin as this word if the OLB is true in saying that this form is original - so then Latin took it on - gol/jol as gil or vi-gil = vi (vim, vis, vigour, victory = vi-strong element in the word)

gol/gil would equate to wheel = vigil would mean - strong wheel - which in Cornish equated to watch, guard (strong) - vi=guard gil/gol= the wheel

Like a watchtower.

It might be Watchers and Wicca too.

vigil could have gone into Latin as a meaning of 'to guard to wheel' - to watch the wheel - keep vigil - keep watch/alert - awake!

The 12 Yule days might equate to the 12 Juul fests just prior to the birth of Lyda, Finda and Frya.

The year was recorded by the Solstice - the Sun went down, it came back up to it's highest point. (Earth changed actually) That is what Stonehenge and Newgrange measures, the sunrise and sunset of the Winter Solstice. This is not actually a Solar Year but a Tropical Year.

One concept is the Sun goes around us daily as day night/24 hours, then the wheel completion of the Solstice is very close to a solar year.

In 46 BCE Julius Caesar in his Julian calendar established December 25 as the date of the winter solstice of Europe (Latin: Bruma). Since then, the difference between the calendar year (365.2500 days) and the tropical year (~365.2421897 days) moved the day associated with the actual astronomical solstice forward approximately three days every four centuries, arriving to December 12 during the 16th century.
The date of Dec 25th was established By Julius Caesar (just after the time of Jesus) as the date of the Winter Solstice.

Christmas or Christ's Mass is one of the most popular Christian celebrations as well as one of the most globally recognized mid-winter celebrations in the Northern hemisphere. Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, called the "Son of God," the second person of the Holy Trinity, as well as "Savior of the World." The birth is observed on December 25, which was the Roman winter solstice upon establishment of the Julian Calendar.
http://en.wikipedia....Winter_solstice

The birth of Christ co-incides really with something like the birth of Baldr by Freya - at the completion of the wheel of the solstice, the Sun was reborn.

The Roman Winter Solstice was the day observed for Jesus birth. I think that's really important and that Jesus is obviously connected to older religious thoughts.

Wralda might be a name for 'year' basically. The Greek word for "year", ἔτος, is cognate with Latin vetus "old", from PIE *wetus- "year", also preserved in this meaning in Sanskrit vat-sa- "yearling (calf)" and vat-sa-ras "year".

Also this etymology:
West Saxon gear (jɛar), Anglian gēr continues Proto-Germanic *jǣram (*jē2ram). Cognates are German Jahr, Old High German jar, Old Norse Šr and Gothic jer, all from a PIE *yērom "year, season". Cognates outside of Germanic are Avestan yare "year", Greek ὥρα "year, season, period of time" (whence "hour"), Old Church Slavonic jaru and Latin hornus "of this year".

German - year man - wheel man etc...of the Juul.

The Roman Winter Solstice was the day observed for Jesus birth. I think that's really important and that Jesus is obviously connected to older religious thoughts.

Wralda might be a name for 'year' basically. The Greek word for "year", ἔτος, is cognate with Latin vetus "old", from PIE *wetus- "year", also preserved in this meaning in Sanskrit vat-sa- "yearling (calf)" and vat-sa-ras "year".

Also this etymology:
West Saxon gear (jɛar), Anglian gēr continues Proto-Germanic *jǣram (*jē2ram). Cognates are German Jahr, Old High German jar, Old Norse ár and Gothic jer, all from a PIE *yērom "year, season". Cognates outside of Germanic are Avestan yare "year", Greek ὥρα "year, season, period of time" (whence "hour"), Old Church Slavonic jaru and Latin hornus "of this year".

German - year man - wheel man etc...of the Juul.
In the OLB Wralda = wereld, world (spiritual) is opposed to Irtha = aarde, earth (physical). The name Wralda  should be interpreted as Universe = heelal, German Weltall, whole world. Wralda created time, time created earth, earth created Frya, Lyda and Finda, the three human races (white, yellow and black). Wralda is also understood as Wr.alda = over-oud, over-old, but I regard this as a wordplay.

heelal would be like, heel+all, maybe all wheel/heel - the wheel being the 'whole' or the Universe. With Achilles weak spot being his heel, some connection can probably be made.

Wralda then would be the Universe because he is the whole, yes.

That is, if Wralda can transfer to heelal/Weltall.

Still, that reference to Latin 'old' for 'year' sounds related in some way.

Your English translation is not very good, but it is better than your Dutch one.

Isn't that weird?

WELDIG is not "gewelddadig" (violent), but mighty, powerful, influential.

If you want to stay close to the original, use "geweldig" (machtig).

You have not read COL's essay about the word WELD and how it relates to WRALDA?

So Jol in it's forms in the OLB does indicate it means 'wheel'.

Could this word be the original form of VIGIL that was in Latin, that gol came out as feast-from vigil (Latin)? I think it works.

juul or hjol/jol/gol as wheel - it would go into Latin as this word if the OLB is true in saying that this form is original - so then Latin took it on - gol/jol as gil or vi-gil = vi (vim, vis, vigour, victory = vi-strong element in the word)

gol/gil would equate to wheel = vigil would mean - strong wheel - which in Cornish equated to watch, guard (strong) - vi=guard gil/gol= the wheel

Like a watchtower.

It might be Watchers and Wicca too.

vigil could have gone into Latin as a meaning of 'to guard to wheel' - to watch the wheel - keep vigil - keep watch/alert - awake!

Lat. vigilate = OLB wak!, watch !  There is no connection with jol =  jul, juul nor with vim=power.

Waralden Olmai, also known as Maylmen Olmai, Radien-attje, Jubmel or Vearalden Olmai, was a major Sami god. Sami people come from SŠpmi, or modern day Finland, Sweden, and Norway. These ancient Nordic people were polytheistic and "Waralden Olmai" was their "world-god". Waralden Olmai is also an epithet for the Germanic Freyr. Today Waralden Olmai is a mythologic figure in Nordic countries.

World God is Wralda.

wor-alda is the word world.

wor/wr being: very or meaning also true. Wralda appears to say: 'very old' which became 'world'.

very
mid-13c., verray "true, real, genuine," later "actual, sheer" (late 14c.), from Anglo-Fr. verrai, O.Fr. verai "true," from V.L. *veracus, from L. verax (gen. veracis) "truthful," from verus "true," from PIE *weros- (cf. O.E. wśr "a compact," O.Du., O.H.G. war, Du. waar, Ger. wahr "true;" Welsh gwyr, O.Ir. fir "true;" O.C.S. vera "faith"). Meaning "greatly, extremely" is first recorded mid-15c.

Interesting epithat for Freyr if that is true. But I guess as Freyr is 'Lord', one could see how he might be construed to be Wralda or God, the Lord.

I don't know about that - the Cornish 'gol'=feast comes from vigil, which is watchfulness, wak/awake.
