The Iron Islanders are vile=Scandinavian pirates fits just right. Even if they have some Greek intelligence. They have words like Witan and Kingsmoot and Thralls....
The Anglo-Saxons are Germanic, at that time Anglo-Saxon was closer to German...and German has since changed.
And when I say Celtic, it's because I don't have the linguistic knowledge to research Irish, Scots, Cornish, Breton and Welsh.
At a stab The Riverlands and Vale would be speaking Welsh, The Westerlands would be Scots or Cornish, the Stormlands Irish, and the Reach Breton... It's very hard to describe because the Celtic people were pushed to the far reaches of the world and very few native speakers survive.
But it's like in Westeros by some accident of history the role of the Anglo-Saxons and Celtics was swapped.
No, the "Tuatha Dé Danann" are not what you read in novella and fiction books. They were the ancient gods of the Celtic people who at a latter time were interpreted as to have been real people and their legend turned into myth (as did Snorri with the Heimskringla and the Scandinavian gods).
I never said the Anglo-saxons were not Germanic, on the contrary. But I stated that "runes" are not more Anglo-saxon than Germanic as a whole. And about:
No, Anglosaxon was never a place... in any case the people, the anglosaxons lived near other Germanic groups. In reality Germany has 2 provinces, Anglia and Saxony, which could be all that remains about the origins of the Anglosaxons.
How is the role of AS and Celtics swapped? Don't the Children represent Celts and the First Men AS according to you? Then there's no swap.
In any case when I said what I said about "Celtic" groups in general, I was not trying to be overcritical of you in particular, but merely pointing out how abstract the concept is.
