Is there some agenda to completely destroy the history of the English Folk? When we look at the news surrounding the finding of the 'Galloway Hoard' we must certainly consider that there is. Almost all of the news outlets and 'experts' who are concerned with this consider it to be a 'Viking' hoard, except for The Times which stated 'Galloway Hoard not so Viking after all'. The gold hoard is in fact Anglo-Saxon, or perhaps even Frisian in origin, as I am going to show here. The Old English Runes show a man named 'Egbert' which is an Old English Name.
The director of the National Museum of Scotland states - 'The Galloway Hoard is an outstanding collection of Viking age objects'; he goes by the name of Dr Gordon Rintoul. The National Geographical states - 'An elite Viking's prized possessions'. To qualify this the hoard is guessed to be an Anglo-Saxon treasure stolen from the churches. Whatever the case, this hoard is in fact part of English History even though it was found in Scotland.
The historian Skene believed that the Frisians occupied areas of Fife and Kinross, and specifically the area around Galloway and Dumfries. Despite the letter-change from 'n' to 'm' the term Dun-Fries is the 'Fortified Town of the Frisians'. The Frisians were akin to the English Tribes that occupied the eastern areas of Lowland Scotland at that time. The tongue of the Lowland Scots is Old English. The name 'Galloway' stems from Galweithia or Walweitha where the prefix 'wal-' of 'gal' refers to 'foreigner', hence the belief that this area was occupied by Saxon-Frisian Tribes. Nennius calls the area of Dumfries by the name Caer Phries which became Dun-Fries. The peoples of these areas - Saxon-Frisians - were called Comgalls.
in 710 CE the Race of Comgalls was devastated, and two sons of Doirgarto (Pictish) were slain, as well as Angus, son of Maelon; Fiachra, son of Dungaile was also amongst the Picts slain. This seems to have been a battle between the Picts and the Saxon-Frisians.
On the so-called Cat Stone we find the following, translated from the Latin - 'In this tomb lies Vetta, daughter of Victricus' - or so we are led to believe by the 'experts'. In fact the Latin says - IN OC T-MULO IAC-T VETTA F VICTR. The latter, being the original in Latin, seems to record the tomb of VITTA the Son of VECTA who was the grandfather of Hengest and Horsa. The 'experts' version helpfully ensures that the true nature of this was hidden; that the English Tribes were here in this area long before the time of Hengest and Horsa! The name 'Edinburgh', where the inscription is found, stems from 'Edwin's Burgh' despite the 'Gaelic' versions given to it. Just above it is 'Haddington' - the 'Ton of the Haddingas'.
This post concerns the Galloway Hoard, so I am not going to go into great details concerning the claim by Skene that the Fomorians of Ireland were Frisians. The name Fo-Mor means 'under the sea' and refers to the area from which the Frisians came; today we term this area 'The Netherlands' because it is beneath sea-level. An early king of the Fomorians was Bhreas - 'The Frisian'. They were said to have come from Lochlannaibh which is the northern coast of Germany, the same area from which the Tuatha de Danaan were said to have come from. One early leader of the Fomorians was called Conaing a Germanic name for 'king'. The massive buildings in Ireland - 'Cyclopean Buildings' were built by these people.
It is said that Octa and Ebussa - Frisians - laid waste to the Orkneys around 344CE. Procopius states that the Angli, Frisones, and Britons occupied this land. This is the line of Hengest and Horsa -
Hengest and Horsa.
Son of Victgils.
Son of Vitta.
Son of Vecta.
Son of Woden.
It seems obvious that there is here no distinction between the Saxons, Jutes and the Frisians, and the Frisians do have a legend of Hengest and Horsa. Thus the idea that the 'Vikings' took this hoard and buried it in Scotland does not have to be the only explanation.
