Veneti were actually three tribes in History. A Celtic tribe living in Brittany, an obscure Indo-European tribe living in North Eastern Italy which is the reason why today this region is called Veneto and why Venice is called Venice and lastly the Veneti living east of the Vistula River also known as the Vistula Veneti.
The rock art from the tomb of Bredarör at Kivik in Sweden is a window into the forgotten world of the Nordic Bronze Age. In this film I interpret all the esoteric imagery, including; sun-wheels, solar crosses, war chariots, armed warriors and ritual axes and boats. With the latest archaeological data, 3D scans and new CGI animations of the art, this film gives a new perspective on a tomb which is 3400 years old!
The Vikings had their own Stonehenge! Stone ship settings aka 'Skeppssättning' are the most remarkable Viking age monuments in Scandinavia, but what were they for? They were built over a period of 2000 years from the Nordic bronze age until the end of the Viking age, mainly in grave fields but they weren’t just associated with burials and cremations as they were also used for pagan rituals and formal assemblies. This video explains how the stone ships may relate first to a Bronze age cult of the sun in Gotland, and later to a Viking belief that the dead would need a vehicle for a journey to and from the underworld. It also connects them to the Viking goddess Freyja and her hall in Folkvang. The stone ship settings included in this film are Tjelvars grave in Gotland, Anundshög in Västmanland, Åsa domaresäte in Södermanland, Ängakåsen and Ale’s stones in Scania and the Jelling stone ship in Denmark.
