"Where did Odysseus Go?" was the title of the oldest European book, written by Homer about 700 BC. It described a sea voyage made around 1200 BC, presumably in the Mediterranean. Historian Edward Furlong studied the legend and decided that the voyage did not take place in the Mediterranean, but instead in the North Atlantic, especially near Ireland and Scotland. Author Edo Nyland was fascinated and visited the four exact locations given by Furlong. When in Ireland he saw some standing stones with strange writing, called the Ogam script. As the script had not been deciphered, Nyland locked himself in his B&B for three days and nights, where he cracked and translated the script which was written in Euskera, also known as Basque. To Nyland's great surprise, while experimenting with the language, he found that all Pharaohs' names could also be translated with the same translating system. This research was described in his first book Linguistic Archaeology, published in 2001. While doing this he gathered a large amount of data about Scotland and Ireland which became the foundation of this book. It included the language spoken in the Bronze Age and the peoples' religion. The very close relationship between Ireland and Egypt is explained in detail. Many key words and names turned out to be contracted sentences which are translated and contributed new historical information.show more
