The ancient Celts and Vikings were Black people.

The Celts were originally Black people. Ephorus (c. 405BC) claimed that the Celts were Blacks or Ethiopians(1)The Celts continued to be recognized as Blacks by Tacitus, who wrote about the Black Celts and Picts in 80 AD .(2)

The Celts on the mainland of Europe were called Iberians or Silures.(3)though the original Celts were Black, overtime their name was stolen by Europeans. Father O’Growney has discussed the history of the Celts. He makes it clear that the original Celts were the Iberians.(4)

The Iberians were probably conquered by the Ligurians.(5) It is suggested that the Ligurians may be represented by the modern Basque of Spain.(6) The Ligurians took the name Celt.

The Ligurians/Celts were conquered by the Gaulish speaking people. The Gauls conqered the Ligurians and pushed them into Spain. It was these Gauls who imposed their language on the Iberian and Ligurian Celts .

The Gauls were Belgians according to Father O’Growney. The Irish and Welsh are descendants of these Gauls.(7) These Gauls spoke Gaulish or Gaelic.(8)

The Germans conquered the Gaulish-Celts, and Gaulish disappeared around 4th Century AD.

All of the Black Celts in Britain were not erased by the Gauls.

This is supported by the Ivory Lady of York ,England. The reconstruction of the face of the Ivory Bangle Lady (c.350AD) indicates that she was African or Black.

This woman was rich and indicates the African type common to the Bristish Isles.She was highly respected by her white subjects.

There is genetic and linguistic evidence that proves that the Celts were Black or African people. An examination of the language spoke by the Basque has a Niger-Congo substratum. C.J.K. Cambell-Dunn has found a Niger-Congo substratum in Basque .(9)

Dr. Cambell-Dunn found that the Niger-Congo and Basque languages share personal pronouns, numerals and vocabulary items.

There is also genetic evidence linking the Basque and Niger-Congo speakers. Both groups share SRY10831.1, YAP, M2,M173(xR1a,R1b3), E3*-P2, E3b2-M81 . (10)This linguistic and genetic evidence supports the African origin of the Celts.

The original Danes or Vikings were Blacks . (11)This is made clear in the Oseberg 8th Century Vikings on the Norway Sledge carving of the Black seafarers that populated the region at this time. It is clear from this carving that the 8th Century Vikings were different from the Blond, big bodied folk of Viking legends.

The Europeans make it clear that the early Welsh were Black Celts. They were a small black race that came to Britain from Iberia. They were forced off the mainland by whites.

  1. Someone made a comment that blacks wouldn’t fare well in the climates of Europe… skin tone will get darker in areas which the sun is prevalent. It will also get lighter in areas where it’s not. I think that he’s missing the basic concept of evolution.

  2. Rob… I don’t know if ur comment about southern Italians has any merit. My wife is southern Italian. I have never seen any I’ll will. The Italians that have blond hair and blues eyes are of germania and Slavic descent. Learn your history and do your research. I’m assuming that you are Italian with blonde hair and blue eyes. If that’s the case… u may not be true Italian at all. If you are dark haired with dark eyes… then… it’s a racist thing.

    1. I am southern Italian & Spanish decent. I took 2 dna tests and both showed 2% Amazigh Berber ancestry. These are who the Moors were. Yet black Americans make up that they were Moors and are dilusional.

  3. The author of this nonsense is probably a Black man Who wants to be a celt. Vikings and nordic people were and are white.
    celtic people are white people.
    Bluetooth Eyed people originale from the Black sea – Ukraine. …and we are all related.
    Blue eyes are an Anomaly. .. even founder in India. But as Indonesien Germanic people reached India it is no surprise.
    Many people in Europe have Black eyes and hair….so the middle was connection is viable. Black africans have only invaded our continent recently.

  4. CW:

    Please edit the article and the claims to align with the footnotes. Footnote #1 reads differently and the conclusion drawn does not flow from the text.

    With that said, the author of footnote #1 does suggest the following: 1) The original indigenous population of Germany was swarthy. 2) The Native Americans were “dusky Brown” throughout both North, Central and South America (makes you wonder where the lighter shades have come from — but contemporary US rape data gives an indication). He even makes up some stuff that Herodotus didn’t say — all while confirming the Egyptians were black with wooly hair. And, he says much more…just not like that on page 66.

  5. Some of the butt hurt “Euros” are having conceptual difficulties with understanding the difference between ancient populations and modern populations. The physical character of various ancient populations in Europe has been known for a very long time – and since most students do not read fine print or follow up on foot notes — they bite on the misleading terms that reveal their confusion in posting here. Let it go — you’re not indigenous to Europe…you came in after the fact. The archaeological record and DNA record and written record is of a single accord — so just let it go. It doesn’t matter anyway…or does it?

  6. Why does everyone here have to be so fucking racist? There is no significant differences between racial groups outside of superficial physical traits, like skin tones, facial structures, trends in body shape and susceptibility to specific disease. This is it. The only emperical difference between us. Chimpanzees have miles more diversity between clangroups than we do. Why the hell do we have to keep up divisions were none really exist?
