& RECORDING the
HISTORY of the GERMANS FROM RUSSIA
and the GERMAN-RUSSIAN VOLGA COLONIES
I was able to gather a tremendous amount of
information on the development of the Celt and Germanic tribes of Germania, and
of their interaction with the Romans, and eventual replacement by the Goths and
the Franks. Where did they all come from?
Celts or Kelts was a tribe (or tribes) of a very early Indo-European people who
from 2000 BC to 100 BC spread over much of what is now Europe. The origin of the
Celts has not been fully determined. Two Celtic tribes called the Cimbri and the
Teutones ("Teuton," an ethnic for Germans comes from the Celtic root
for "people"), emigrated east and settled in
The center of Celtic expansion,
however, was Gaul, which lay north of the Alps in the region now within the
and part of Spain. The original areas of inhabitation in Gaul were along the Rhein, Main, and
Rivers. At this time, the forest areas were just too dense to inhabit. Historical
artifacts found near the
area document this period of Celt society. Remember that this was a loosely
connected society, and with no future plan, the Celt tribes and groups
eventually ranged from the British Isles and northern Spain to as far east as
Transylvania, the Black Sea coasts, and Galatia in Anatolia. Eventually, they
were absorbed into the
as Britons, Gauls, Boii, Galatians, and Celt Iberians.
