Phrygians the Bryges of Brygium Thrace Moved to Western Turkey Across the Hellespont When Ice Age Ended


Little is known about the Thracian language, yet Phrygian is probably much like it because the Bryges of Thrace moved from where today is Bulgaria and northeastern Greece across the Hellespont to western Anatolia (Turkey) when the Ice Age had ended. The word Bryges is of the same etymological root as the word berg, meaning high place, highlanders, from the Balkan and Rodopi mountains.
