Location correlations (changed title)

Post by teijahn »

Any views or prior research on these links and Chris Folgers other OLB relative work? In a quick preview, it's at least interesting tho I'm not sure how accurate, there's a couple of location correlations that don't add up, eg Amsterdam as old Alderga / Frysaburg, which as I read it OLB puts clearly in Texland or thereabouts now Texel. His view that Stavia in OLB represents Purmerend and not Stavoren , seems odd to myself who has no knowledge of the old FRisian or Dutch languages., as well as Denne Marken not being Denmark.

Is there available an OLB Dictionary to shortcut research on old names/towns etc. ?. A reference / index to then and now place names/towns/regions and a list of those places/towns no longer existing would be helpful, especially to newer researchers.

This thread should have a better title. Perhaps there should be a new category for posts like this (any ideas?).

Some weeks ago, searching one of my old blog posts online, I found one of his substack posts, with mixed-up fragments from my earlier work combined with other material (from wikipedia?), so I suspest he uses AI to create much of his noice.

If you do more than a quick preview, you can draw your own conclusions.

There must be an old list somewhere on my blog.
Some locations are obvious, others have modern versions with (seemingly) the same name but may have originally been located elsewhere (or somewhat more off shore). Few names are still a mystery. By searching on the blog or wiki, you can usually find earlier research of geographical names/locations.

I came across an english video of his on youtube, but it didn't sway me to see things his way. He says that the OLB makes out Phoenician to be a language from the Fryas, but it doesn't say that. It says Nef-tunis was a Fryan, and he helped to build Tyre with the help of Finns, thus for him to say Phoenician was a Fryan language is stretching the source material to far. He also says all of the OLB and Bible take place in North Holland, which reduces much history to only one quite small stretch of land. It would be funny as a meme, but I'm not buying it.

We could have a thread for other interpretations of the OLB, or where we talk about people who misquote it. I've wanted to talk about the ways it's been misquoted on interviews and streams, even by those who mean well. It could be a thread called "debating opinions" or something like that.

Category 'Origin' only has two short threads. Let's rename and redefine it so threads like this can be moved there.

Of the options offered, I prefer "other interpretations" however I suggest that be broadened to "other research", this would allow discussion on other references to topics such as Doggerland/bank ongoing archaeology, origin/development of Kelts (celts), Saxons, & Gauls etc which are very interesting subthreads of OLB, and may support aspects of the story.
