Re: Thraco-Dacian expansion during Late Bronze Age and early Iron Age
Diegis, do you take into account cultural and trading contacts when reaching your conclusions? Because that could be a more plausible case for 'Dacian' artifacts being found in places like Northern Germany and Jutland. We could also look at the possibility of mercenaries serving a notable chieftain in the region. We know for example of warriors from outside the borders of the 'civilised world' (Northern, Western and Central Europe) serving in Italy, North Africa and Asia Minor, and of notable leaders such as Burebista and Ariovistus attracting large numbers of men to their fold, so could it be conceivable that groups of warriors from Dacia served, say, in Jutland and eventually settled there?
