1. Question: What historical evidence is there to justify Brit-Am beliefs that the Lost Ten Tribes migrated to the west?
Answer: This question is answered in detail in our publications. An impression of our proofs is also to be found under the headings concerning Archaeology, and Linguistics.
Historical evidence is important and it does exist in abundance. Nevertheless the emphasis of Brit-Am is on Biblical Proofs with the hsitorical evidence subservient to Scripture and considered as throwing light on Scriptural passages. Apart from that, a good portion of the total body of Brit-Am Literature involves historical studies one way or another in the wider sense.

Jean Francoise Le Petit ("Le Grande Chronicle. Ancienne et Moderne de Holland, Zeelande, Utrecht, Frise, Oversyseel, et de Groenungham", Dordrecht, 1601)  related the tradition that a certain "Brutus" had expelled "giants" namedcafter Albion from Britain. These "giants" said Le Petit were  refugees from Assyria who from Britain went to Holland and there intermixed with the Saxons who later invaded Britain. The related legends speaking of refugees from Assyria amongst the early Celts in Britain apparently were influenced by British sources since lost to us. Geoffrey of Monmouth related that "Brutus" found a large number of "giants" in Cornwall which is known as having had early Phoenician or Phoenician-Israelite contacts. The term "Albion" was another name for Britain. It is cognate with the name of Lebanon in northern Israel including or bordering on the Israelite territories of Asher, Dan, and Nephtali. The sacred stone (in the breastplate of the High Priest in the Temple of Jerusalem) of the Tribe of Asher was called "Tarshish". "Albion" in Roman accounts was considered a son of Neptune also known as Poseidon. The name "Neptune" has been associated with that of Nephtali and "Poseidon" with the "Sons of Dan".  (NAHUM SLOUSCHZ, "Les Hebreo-Pheniciens. Introduction a l'Histoire Des Origines De La Colonisation Hebraique Dans Les Pays Mediteranee", Paris, 1909).

2. Question: According to what Migratory Routes did the Ten Tribes come Westward?
Answer: Below are the headings of the Major Migratory Movements. For details see our publications and relevant articles.


An old British-Israel Map showing the Migrations of the Lost Ten Tribes.
On the whole Brit-Am agrees with what is depicted.

(1). Movement by Sea: Phoenician and Philistine ships working for the Assyrians transported Hebrews to Spain, Gaul, and Britain.

(2). Movement by Land Northward
Ca.740-720 BCE:  Israelites taken to North where they became identified with Cimmerians, Scyths, and Goths.

(3). Cimmerians-Israelites moved to Europe

(4). First Scythian Movements to Europe Ca. 550 BCE.

(5).  Royal Scythians Move Westward 300-100 BCE.

(6). Barbarian Scythian-Israelites
associated with the Hun invasion of Europe in the 400s CE.

(7). The Danites and Nephtalites Move to Scandinavia
in the 400's to 600's CE.

(8). The Viking Invasions

(9). The Normans were descended from Vikings who settled in England, Ireland, Normandy (France),
and elsewhere.

(10). The Picts of Scotland and the Khazars who converted to Judaism were both derived from the Agathyrsy (of the Tribe of Manaaseh) of Scythia.

For details on Movements 11 and 12 below see our book "Joseph".
(11) From Germany to North America: In the 1700s and 1800s CE Israelites separated themselves from their non-Israelite neighbors and moved out to North America.

People of Israelite origin separated themselves from their non-Israelite moved to Israelite Nations.

3. Question: Who Were the Hyksos?
Answer: The Hyksos were native Egyptian rulers who were advised and influenced as a matter of principle by foreigners especially those from the areas of Canaan. The Israelites were to a degree the bearers of Hyksos culture and identified with the Hyksos in the eyes of others. The symbol of the Hyksos was a griffin which was also a symbol of the Tribe of Dan who appear to have become prominent at some stage in the Hyksos framework and are referred to in Greek tradition as the People of Danaus. In Irish tradition the ancestors of the Irish nation fulfilled the role of the Hyksos in Egyt whilst including Israelites within their ranks.

4. Question: What Connection did the Phoenicians have with Israel?
Answer: The Phoenicians were Sea-going Canaanites who dwelt on the coasts. The Canaanite cities of Tyre and Sidon were major Phoenician cities. Some Israelites Tribes (such as Dan and Asher) were involved with the Phoenicians and sometimes identified with them. The Phoenicians also transported, on behalf of the Assyrian authorities, Israelite captives to areas of Phoenician influence over the sea to the west, to Spain, Gaul, and Britain.

6. Question: Were the Celts Hebrews?
Answer: The Celts or at least the Western Celts appear to have referred to themselves as "Iberi" or "Hiberi" meaning "Hebrew". In the British Isles at least there is no evidence that they or anyone else in their own time called them "Celts" but they did call them "iberi". "Hebrew" can connote "Wanderer" and the name "Scotti" has also been attributed a similar meaning through there exists no unanimous opinion on this matter. The names "Celt" and "Scotti" have also both been interpreted to mean "hidden".
