I have in the past written extensively on all three of my blogs about the connection between the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc and the four Hallows or treasures of the Tuatha De Danann. See in particular The Four Sacred Treasures of the Tuatha De Danann[31/12/09] and The Graal Runes of the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc[10/2/13, Celto-Germanic Culture, Myth and History blog.]
The Tuatha De Danann as Miguel Serrano points out in Nos. Book of the Resurrection[recently republished by the 55 Club]:
"Tuatha De Danann: In Irish tradition, they are the Aesir of Norse legend, the divine ancestors who descended from the stars, the Hyperboreans."
Anyone who has made a comparative study of Germanic and Celtic mythologies will not need me to tell them of the close parallels between the families of the Tuatha De Danann and the Aesir-Vanir, not only in function[Lugh-Woden, Nuada-Tiw] but also in name [Taranis-Thunar (Thunder) ]. This goes beyond a shared Indo-European legacy but a more specific Celto-Germanic one. It is significant that even the DNA of the Celtic and Germanic peoples tends to be dominated by the R1b Y chromosone haplotype, unlike the eastern Europeans Aryans, the Slavs and Balts who tend to be of the R1a type, suggestive of an ancient branching off from the R1 Ur-chromosone. This is in my opinion indicative of a different series of migrations from our original ancient Thulean Ur-Heimat. Even the type of Indo-European languages we speak[Germanic, Celtic, Greek, Tocharian and Italic-centum languages, whilst Baltic, Slavic, Armenian, Iranian and Indian- satem languages is suggestive of this. The centum-satem division is thus reflected in the R1b-R1a division.
This makes it sheer nonsense in trying to differentiate Germanic from Celtic DNA-much to the chagrin of both Celtic and Germanic purists and deniers of the Aryan concept!
It is through the study of the various northern European Indo-European mythologies-Germanic, Celtic, Baltic and Slavic that I hope to throw some light upon our shared Aryan past, something which should be of importance to all folkish people.Comparative mythology, linguistics and genetics are the tools in our arsenal.
It is particularly interesting that the four Hallows or treasures; the Spear of Lugh, the Sword of Nuada, the Stone of Destiny and the Cauldron of the Dagda are said to have arrived in Ireland/Eire [land of the Arya] from the Tuatha`s[Teutons`?] Ur-Heimat of Tir nan`Og which according to Stevin L. Akins in his The Lebor Feasa Runda, "disappeared into the depths of the ocean in the space of a single day and night when the waves of the sea overtook it..." One is reminded of the story of the destruction of Atlantis in Plato`s Timaeus and Critias.
It is my intention to complete a detailed study of the four Hallows in conjunction with the Anglo-Saxon runes, dedicating an entire article to each Hallow, something which has not yet been attempted.
