Re: Inferences from archeology
- Hey Frank, AWS,
The following is based on theory, historical place names and perhaps
According to an out of print British Israelite publications map with
migrations of the Frisians seems to imply an early link to the more eastern regions of the Beth-Sac Khumri although the European route isn't suggested by way of Crete, Macedonia through Veneta but rather an alternative route right through Italy. Ironically the Frisians aren't listed among Sac names in the central region [Saka,Sacki Sacksen] of Europe but further north are the Warni and Franks to the south of them.
As of 16 June 2011 Scandinavian origins seem to present a problem for the Warini at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Warini
6 "East Anglian sources called the inhabitants of 'Frisia' Warnii instead of Frisians."
My grandmothers maiden name is Warren and they claim to be German although the genealogical records are in French.

The area most settled by their descendants in Ireland, Wexford, seems to have played a large role in the uprisings in 1640 and 1798.
