This article contains so much wrong information that it needs to be deleted and rewritten completely!!

Example"Note that the early Goths, AD 30, in the Vistula Bay called themselves 'Gothiskandzas' which means to say that they were from 'Gothia' and 'Scandzas/Scania'. In early times Scandzas/Scania was a much larger area than modern day Scania/Skåne and included modern Halland, Skåne, Bornholm, Blekinge, Öland and Tjust (and potentially Herulian Zealand as well) - while Gothia included Bohuslän, Västergötland, Östergötland and Gotland (and potentially Southern Norway as well). "

This is completely false information. We don't know if Goths ever lived in the Vistula bay let alone do we know how these people called themselves. Moreover, the name Gothiscanda is a geographical (not an ethnographic) term of the 6th century. I think this false information was included deliberately to misguide readers regarding the origin of historical Goths!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.5.187.42 (talk) 07:45, 6 November 2014 (UTC)


Yes, this article is at best naive nonsense or at worst some kind of Scandinavian propaganda. It is beyond redemption and should be deleted as soon as possible. Is there nobody responsible for this article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.59.151.181 (talk) 07:55, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

well. if saxons are scirii, and scirii are bastarnae, and bastarnae are scitotauri, and scitotauri are spori thus slavs(saka, sakaliba, siclab), than germans are slavs :). 89.205.2.27 (talk) 01:50, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
