Scandinavia Saxon Ascania Named for Ashkenaz a Grandson of Japheth Progeny Came Up Danube After Ice Age


When northern Europe was almost all cleared of the Ice Age snowpack by circa 1400 b. c. (except on the highest mountains of course), progeny of Ashkenaz (a son of Gomer and grandson of Japheth) moved west up the Danube river from the Black Sea (which had been a huge lake during the Ice Age become connected to the world ocean when the sea level rose) to settle in the newly growing forests where today is called Germany, the Ashkenazi in Ascania, Saxons, Sachsens, and some moved on across the Baltic to Scandinavia, Scandia, for Ashkenazi.
