      Having reread Tore's fine booklet _The Origin of the Svear_
      (extended new edition 1994) it would be interesting to know
      a little more on the stand of the theories today.

      Some Ostrogoths migrated seemingly to England
      after the fall of the Ostrogothic kingdom in Italy.
      Finds in the Sutton Hoo grave is indicating both connections
      to the Ostrogoths and to the Gutar on Gotland

      One link would be the Getae of Beowulf who are in reality
      according to Tore Gotlanders. The Gotlanders had
      contacts with the Ostrogoths throughout their history
      up until the fall of the Ostrogithic kingdom (the last Ostrogoths
      in Italy surrendered in 555 AD.

      Bronze kettles of Gotlandic origin have been found in
      the Sutton Hoo grave. Swedish Professor Sune Lindqvist
      is of the opinion that there is a link between Beowulf's Getae
      and the Sutton Hoo finds.
