      To correctly evaluate the Nordic original home
      of the Gothic people it is necessary also to take into account
      other Germanic peoples that originated in Scandinavia:
       
      Langobardi
       
      According to Paulus Diaconus this Germanic people had
      its orginiasl home in the province of Scania, southern
      Sweden.
       
      Eruli
       
      Most scholars believe they originated in Denmark and
      part of the people, according to Procopius returned
      the Oscaninavia from Illyricum in the beginning
      of the 6th century to settle near the Goetar/Goths
      probably in the province of Blekinge.
       
      Vandali
       
      Originated in the north Jutland province of Vendsyssel,
      Denmark.
       
      Rugi
       
      Original home in the Norwegian province of Rogaland
      (around the city of Stavanger).
       
      Cimbri
       
      Original home on the Cimbrian Peninsula (Jutland).
      In the first century B.C. threatened Rome with another
      tribe from Jutland.
       
      Burgundi
       
      Originated on the Danish island of Bornholm
      in the Baltic Sea (formerly known as
      Burgundarholm).
       
      Gepidi
       
      According to Jordanes came on the third ship
      from southern Scandinavia to the mouth of Vistula.
       
      This is for starters. Rest my case here but most
      willing to continue the discussion with the presentation
      of evidence.
       
      Best wishes
