SCOTLAND: The Land Of The Ancient Greeks...

   Skotos or Scotos in Greek, means 'Darkness'
   Scotland, etymologically means the Land of Darkness. 
   The language, as many years pass, always tells the truth. 

   When the Minoans and Mycenaeans were looking for tin they found, in fact, a large amount in the islands north of Heracleidae Columns. These islands were named Kassiterides Islands (Κασσιτερίδες Νήσους).
Keras of Aeolus - Horn Aeolus - Cormwall

   The Greeks arriving there, in the south-western part of England, were always caught the strong winds, and so named the peninsula Keras of Aeolus. 
   When the Romans later had the sovereignty of the area, gave the same name in the region, with the difference that the Romans name for the keras, is horn (Horn-Aiolou). From there, with little alteration, Corn-Aeolus-Corn-walus, reached us today be called Cornwall. The land above, the Greeks called it Scotland, because of the fog and darkness that prevailed there.

   When the British where maping the area, and asked how the locals called the islands, the natives answered Trisnisi (means in Greek: The three islands)! 
   The englishmen, without knowing exactly what it means gave the name Iland, plural Isles, and we have the name TRESHNISH ISLES!!!! 
   A little below we Iona, in Nova Scotia (!) {reminds you of Ionnes, the ancient Greek tribe?}, just to the right an area called Argilos (!) {Greek word meaning Argile, where and below the town of Ayr (a) {Aeras in Greek: Air, wind). 
   It is a fact that Scots and Irish consider, based on theit mythology, that their ancestors are the Mycenaeans!

   And a few words: Donisis (Gr.) meaning vibration = danceoROFi = Roof, Oros meaning Mount = the ore came from Mt = ORE, Dagono means bite = Dog = Dangonei = DANG... 

   Also in 1991 at the estuary of the river Ems in Bay Bigksmpery - N. England - were discovered the remains of a shipwreck which was carrying bars of cassiterite [A dating method with carbon-14 found the date to be in about 4,000 BC. Minoan inscriptions (from the 2nd Millennium BC) have occasionally been found in varius archaelogical excavations from Anatolia and the Iberian Peninsula,even to Metcalf - cape in the East Coast of the USA! 
   Even the English Professor Barry Cunliffe, argues that the amber trade was very common among Nordic peoples and the Greeks as early as 2,000 BC and that suggested in numerous findings from the Gouessex, England, the Mycenaean cities and on the coasts of France and Germany. Great story that will not ever be written.]

   Research about Pytheas, the ancient Greek seaman and traveller, who gave accounts of travelling to the British Isles in ancient times. 

   Greeks colonised in all directions in pre-classical times, to the north too.
