I spent many happy days snorkelling and relaxing at Dreamers back in the 70s. We knew it was an ancient jetty, by the bits and pieces sometimes found on the seabed but not that it was this important. :D

who says that the copper found was from cyprus. copper is also mined in the scandinavian countries.

Using trace element and lead isotope analysis, the authors argue that some bronze tools excavated in Sweden could have been made of Cypriot copper; these two discoveries suggest that Scandinavians were travelling to the Mediterranean, rather than acting through a middle man.

that word could is such a big word and includes could not. as it is a risk you have to spacify the percentage of probabilityof what it is abd you can then see the percentage it may not be.

how ever there is a stronger cultural link between the scandinavians and the terggs from mongolia with language. lets face it gcs are always trying to prove that cyprus is the centre of the world and it is not. we ere no more and no less than what we are.

...it has already been discussed in archaeology, this link between copper, the quality of copper from Cyprus, and Viking swords.

No need to get your feathers ruffled Lordo; what are you trying to say, the Scands are Mongols, therefore not "Greek": where is the logic in that?

...more to the point: you GreeeeK, or Tuuurrrgis, i ask because you don't sound like someone Cypriot.

the report said could be, where as language is recogniseable as being interacting. the same with the native americans. languages have so many common words and beliefs that it cannot be coinsidence.

where the average greekc cypriot is always trying to prove that they were important in the past. this is a complex people have when they are inferior.
