Fishing rods (people)
Table of contents
around 100 mentions the Roman author Tacitus the fishing rods: Reudigni deinde et Aviones et Anglii et Varini et Eudoses et Suardones et Nuithones fluminibus aut silvis muniuntur. He finds howeveronly worth mentioning that they admired all together the God Nerthus (earth). About a half century later the fishing rods are mentioned by Ptolemäus and added the Sueben.
migration to Thuringia
in 2. or 3. Century moved a partthe fishing rods together with warning the Elbe upper to the south into the area, where the Hermunduren and Markomannen had its realms. That the today's landscape became to really leave fishing rods thereby from all inhabitants, how later reports maintain it,is rather improbable. The fishing rods formed a part of the Oberschicht of the Kingdom of Thuringia. Also after Frankish occupation fishing rods remained in the country, on which the Lex Angliorum et Werinorum hoc est Thuringorum, which to Karl the large one notes around 800left, refers to.
migration to Great Britain
starting from approximately 200, strengthened then starting from approximately 450 fishing rods emigrated together with Saxonia and jutes after Britannien . They became obvious first by the Roman inhabitants of the island as auxiliary troops (foederati) enlisted, in order to protect the country after the departure of the imperial troops (410) from aggressors. But soon the Germanic troops seem to have established independent rule. The fishing rods settled probably in particular in East Anglia (Counties Cambridge-almost, Norfolk, Suffolk, parts southern Lincoln-almost) and penetrated into 6. Forwards and the kingdom Deira in Northumbrien created century northward to Lothian ( Scotland ). The names of the peoples merged into the termthat fishing rod Saxonia. The name England for the southeast part of Britanniens is derived from the fishing rods. The anglo-saxon language, a branch of the language old-of Lower Saxony, became the basis of the English language.
At the turn of late ancient times to the Middle Ages the Christianisierung began by Augustinus of Canterbury. The main trunks united finally to a “English” kingdom under Egbert of Wessex. There were attacks of the Danes again and again. 1066 became the fishing rods of William the conquerer with the battle of Hastings defeats. The Normannen united with the fishing rods under a choice king. The people divided into free one (Earl) and unfree one.
reasons of the emigrations
for the emigration of the fishing rods become in the historical researchseveral reasons discusses:
- It gave in the 3. and 4. Century on the kimbrischen peninsula military conflicts, which can be proven archaeologically (see. the weapon finds in the Thorsberg with Süderbrarup among other things).
- In addition there were probably climatic changes. Thus break around 350 thoseFinds of grain polling in the areas lain more deeply off, during it on Geestinseln, e.g. Süderbrarup, increase.
- From the departure of the Roman army from Britannien a safety gap resulted. The keltorömische population was concerned by the ideas of the celtic Pikten from Scotland.Thus the British “king” recruited Guorthigirn (also Vortigern, lat. Vertigernus, anglo-saxon Wyrtgeorn mentioned) aimed around 430 fishing rods, Saxonia and jutes (already in former times at the British coast to raids had emerged) as colonial forces on. Unclear is however howsaid, whether all fishing rods had actually left their origin area, or whether a part remained. At least probably the Oberschicht, among them also descendant of the legendary fishing rod king Offa ( not to confound with the English king Offa of Mercien) from that emigratedTime before the emigration.
