I need to take a break from reading your fractured arguments.


Not at-all.
You have to remember, the Scandinavaens never got Latinised.
Only the ones that went to Normandy, did.
They still speak Proto-Germanic language to this day.
Their history did not get wiped out by an Indo-european conquest.


Norwegian (norsk) is a North Germanic language spoken mainly in Norway, where it is the official language. Along with Swedish and Danish, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwegian_language


And they know their history.

They have vessels called The Hjortspring boat, that date back to 400BC

The Hjortspring boat (Danish: Hjortspringbåden) is a vessel designed as a large canoe, from the Scandinavian Pre-Roman Iron Age. It was built circa 400–300 BCE, which is Bronze age, let alone Iron age https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hjortspring_boat


And when i say they never got wiped out by an Indo language conquest/invasion, i mean at least not prior to the corded ware culture of 3000bc, which was, an indo language conquest/invasion

The Corded Ware culture[2] comprises a broad archaeological horizon of Europe between c. 2900 BCE – circa 2350 BCE https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corded_Ware_culture


Between 3000 and 2500 BC, new settlers (Corded Ware culture) arrived in eastern Norway. They were Indo-European farmers https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norway#Bronze_Age
