    19b. Streams of Blood

    [198/19] In the mountainous, northernmost part of Britannia, a ‘skots’, or ‘rough’, folk dwells;[1] mostly of Frya’s blood. Half of them stem from the Kelta-Followers, the rest from exiled and banned men who, over the course of time, have taken refuge there from the tin mines. All those from the tin mines have wives who are foreign, or of foreign descent. They are all under the power of the Gola. Their weapons are wooden bows and javelins pointed with antler or [199] flint. Their houses are of sod and straw, and some of them live in mountain caves. Sheep they have stolen are their only wealth. Among the descendants of the Kelta-Followers, some still have iron weapons inherited from their ancestors. To be well understood, I must now interrupt my story of the Skots and write something about the Near Greeklands:

    The Near Greeklands used to belong only to us.[2] But, from time immemorial, descendants of Lyda and Finda have also settled there. Of the latter, a whole host eventually came from Troy. (Troy was the name of a city that was conquered and destroyed by the folk of the Far Greeklands.) After the Trojans had nestled in the Near Greeklands, with time and vigor they built a bastion of walls and towers, named Rome — meaning: ‘expansive’ or ‘renowned’.[3] When that was done, this folk succeeded through deceit and force in mastering all the land.

    The folk living on the south coast of the Middle Sea mostly originate from Phoenicia. The Phoenicians are a debased folk; a mix of Frya’s, Finda’s, [200] and Lyda’s blood. The Lyda folk are there as slaves, but the lewdness of the women allowed these black people to bastardize all other folks and dye them brown. This Phoenician folk and the Romans constantly fight for rule over the Middle Sea, and they live in enmity with one another.[4]

    The Roman priests, who desire to rule the whole earth, cannot abide the Gola. First they took Massilia from the Phoenicians, then all lands south, west, and north of it, as well as the southern part of Britannia. Everywhere, they expelled the Phoenician priests, known as the Gola. In this way, thousands of Gola were compelled to move to North Britannia.

    Until recently, the supreme Gol resided there at the burg named Kearenek, also called Kearenherne,[5] from where he commanded all other Gola and where all their gold was gathered. Kearenherne — ‘chosen horn (corner)’ — is a stone burg that once belonged to Kelta. Thus, the maidens of the descendants of the Kelta-Followers wanted it back. Due to the enmity between the maidens and the Gola, feud and strife [201] came into the hill country, bringing with it murder and burning.

    Our steersmen were wont to go there to obtain wool in exchange for prepared hides and linen. Askar had often joined them. He secretly made an alliance with the maidens and some nobles, determined to expel the Gola from Kearenek. At his next visit, he brought iron helmets and steel bows for the nobles and bravest men. War came with him and, ere long, streams of blood flowed down the slopes of the hills. When Askar believed his chance had come, he went with forty ships and took Kearenek and the supreme Gol, along with all his gold. The folk with whom he fought the mercenaries of the Gola he had lured from the Saxonmarks, promising them great spoils of war and booty. Thus, nothing was left to the Gola.

    After that, he took two islands as a base for his ships, from whence he later went out to plunder all the Phoenician ships and cities he could reach. When he returned, he brought almost six hundred of the strongest young men from the Skots mountain folk, saying they were given him as a guarantee [202] that their parents would remain loyal to him. But that was a lie. He kept them as guards at his court, where they received daily training in riding and the use of various weapons.

    Notes

    1. SKOTS is elsewhere used in the meaning ‘coarse’ or ‘indecent’; in Dutch ‘schots’ can also mean messy or wrong.
    2. The coastal areas of southern Italy were referred to as Magna Graecia (Greater Greece) by the Romans. There is still an ethnic minority called ‘Grecani’ or the ‘Griko’ people.
    3. ‘Rome — meaning: ‘expansive’ or ‘renowned’’ (ROME THAT IS RUM) — RUM can either suggest expansive (Dutch: ‘ruim’) or renowned/fame, famous (Dutch: ‘roem’, ‘beroemd’).
    4. Probably referring to the Punic Wars (264 - 146 BCE).
    5. ‘Kearenek’ (KÉRENÀK) — this name may be related to Carnac on the south coast of Brittany (France) and Karnak in Egypt.

    Sandbach 1876

    [p.239 cont.] In the north part of Britain there exists a Scotch people—the most of them spring from Frya's blood—some of them are descended from the followers of Keltana, and, for the rest, from Britons and fugitives who gradually, in the course of time, took refuge there from the tin mines. Those who come from the tin mines have wives, either altogether foreign or of foreign descent. They are all under the dominion of the Gauls. Their arms are wooden bows and arrows pointed with stag's-horn or flint. Their houses are of turf and straw, and some of them live in caves in the mountains. Sheep that they have stolen form their only wealth. Some of the descendants of Keltana's followers still have iron weapons, which they have inherited from their forefathers. In order to make myself well understood, I must let alone for a while my account of the Scotch people, and write something about the near Krekalanders (Italians. The Krekalanders formerly belonged to us only, but from time immemorial descendants of Lyda and Finda have established themselves there. Of these last there came in the end a whole troop from Troy. Troy is the name of a town that the far Krekalanders (Greeks) had taken and destroyed. When the Trojans had nestled themselves among the near Krekalanders, with time and industry they built a strong town with walls and citadels named Rome, that is, [p.241] Spacious. When this was done, the people by craft and force made themselves masters of the whole. land. The people who live on the south side of the Mediterranean Sea, come for the most part from Phœnicia. The Phœnicians (Puniers or Carthaginians)[1] are a bastard race of the blood of Frya, Finda, and Lyda. The Lyda people were there as slaves, but by the unchastity of the women these black people have degenerated the other people and dyed them brown. These people and the Romans are constantly struggling for the supremacy over the Mediterranean Sea. The Romans, moreover, live at enmity with the Phœnicians; and their priests, who wish to assume the sole government of the world, cannot bear the sight of the Gauls. First they took from the Phœnicians Marseilles—then all the countries lying to the south, the west, and the north, as well as the southern part of Britain—and they have always driven away the Phœnician priests, that is the Gauls, of whom thousands have sought refuge in North Britain. A short time ago the chief of the Gauls was established in the citadel, which is called Kerenac (Karnac), that is the corner, whence he issued his commands to the Gauls. All their gold was likewise collected there. Keeren Herne (chosen corner), or Kerenac, is a stone citadel which did belong to Kalta. Therefore the maidens of the descendants of Kaltana's followers wished to have the citadel again. Thus through the enmity of the maidens and the Gaul's, hatred and quarrelling spread ever the mountain country with fire and sword. Our sea people often came there to get wool, which they paid for with prepared hides and linen. Askar had often gone with them, and had secretly made friendship with the maidens and some princes, and bound himself to drive the Gauls out of Kerenac. When he came back there again he gave to the princes and the fighting men iron helmets and steel bows. War had come with him, and soon blood was streaming down [p.243] the slopes of the mountains. When Askar thought a favourable opportunity occurred, he went with forty ships and took Kerenac and the chief of the Gauls, with all his gold. The people with whom he fought against the soldiers of the Gauls, he had enticed out of the Saxenmarken by promises of much booty and plunder. Thus nothing was left to the Gauls. After that he took two islands for stations for his ships, from which he used later to sally forth and plunder all the Phœnician ships and towns that he could reach. When he returned he brought nearly six hundred of the finest youths of the Scotch mountaineers with him. He said that they had been given him as hostages, that he might be sure that the parents would remain faithful to him; but this was untrue. He kept them as a bodyguard at his court, where they had daily lessons in riding and in the use of all kinds of arms.
