    Maybe what bothers this person you keep disparaging is the unbalanced minds of certain Italian characters around anthro forums who go around posting nonsense about other Europeans instead of...

    How strange, you taunting certain forum members again? Why am I not surprised?

    You mean like you and your Italian friends around here giving negative ratings to all my posts addressing your...

    Historians have known for a long time (even as far back as the 19th century) that there were considerable numbers of foreigners, including Middle Easterners, in Roman Britain simply by examining the...

    Not likely, except if you go by the results suggested by studies like Fiorito et al. for southern Italy, which imply that the admixture there is from medieval times, while for the rest of Italy is...

    That's not what many studies show, continental Italians have it too (not "just Sicilians"), "Joey".

    Says who? Measured average male height in Spain goes from 5 ft 8 in to 5 ft 9 in. In France, for example, measured average male height goes from about 5 ft 8 1⁄2 in. to 5 ft 9 in.

    Not disputing your main argument, but just point out that the gap between the appearance of gunpowder in China and in Europe is big enough to grant the Chinese the priority in its invention. Of...

    You conveniently forget the number of prisoners from the Mithridatic wars, and the Carthaginians. Also, the author gives all the figures simply as examples that give an idea of the large scale of...

    You do understand that you are not telling me anything "new" here since I said it long before you that these quoted figures have to be taken with a grain of salt. They are likely exaggerated, but...

    The same sources say that hundreds of thousands if not millions of native Near Easterners and North Africans were also brought to Italy. But those figures are mostly for the BC centuries, during...

    Also "a massive intake of slaves" from the Mithridatic wars. Also 100,000 Parthians. Then there's also the contributions of other means of obtaining slaves other than war captives, like commerce with...

    You already know why the majority of the Near Easterners that the Romans were in contact with at the time would have been Hellenized. Hellenization of the areas in question had been going on for...

    That source also gives similar reported figures for slaves from Africa and the Near East. And Plutarch's 1 million claim is hardly believable. It has no equivalent anywhere in the other reported...

    Though Velleius Paterculus' 400,000 figure still seems exaggerated, it still is way more believable than Plutarch's absurd 1 million captives claim.

    The Anatolian origin of Etruscans, or at least...

    False, I quote from historians from all over the 19th to 21st century span of time. It is not like opinions on this subject have changed too much among the majority of historians in all this time. On...

    Carcopino's work is perfectly fine, the fact that it was written in 1940 hardly prevents it from being so; scholarship on this subject goes to much before that. It is not based on "gossip or...

    You are talking about much older events, not what was going on in later Roman times, which is what all these historians like Carcopino (yes, very "Germanic" surname) are talking about. The Hellenized...

    As I suspected, hardly much of a reply. The usual gratuitous diatribes and denials.


    You admitted it yourself, you know well what Nordicist agendas are from at least a few years ago.
