Dear Steve

Found this article, very interesting! Looking forward to meeting you at the Prescott Succoth Feast! Here’s the link:

Thanks for sending this very interesting link which I’m sharing with all readers. It concerns the finding of a large trove of gold artifacts dating to the early Medieval period of Anglo-Saxon England. The link dates the trove to about 675-725 AD, and over 1,345 objects have been found. The story asserts that this find “will make us rethink the Dark Ages,” as it indicates there was more wealth in Anglo-Saxon England than previously realized.

Also of considerable interest is the fact that one gold object revealing a Christian origin for the gold’s makers. One object had an inscription from the book of Numbers written in a crude form of Latin. This infers that the maker of the inscription did not have Latin as his native tongue and only knew it to a limited degree.

This also supports a point made in my book, Israel’s Lost Empires, that the Sacae Scythians of Asia (the descendants of the exiled ten tribes of Israel) were excellent goldsmiths who fashioned very artistic works of art in gold. This skill was transferred to their descendants who migrated into Europe as Saxons. The self-depictions of the Sacae Scythians on their goldwork confirms they were bearded Caucasians/Semites. The Romans referred to the Sacae as Saxa or Saxones (they changed the “c” to an “x”).

I look forward to speaking to your group in October. However, due to health limitations, I’ll be speaking via a phone hook-up instead of in person.
