@martingeddes Not only the tales about Troy and Odysseus but also those about the garden of Eden, Noah and Moses are situated in or near The Netherlands.
@martingeddes (Continued #pt) More about Eelco de Boer's theory on the geography of the works of Homer and the Bible.
@martingeddes According to Saxon legends, Noah stranded with his ark on the cliffs of the Isterberg, which must have been on the North Sea at that time. It is now in Germany, about 5 km east of the border with The Netherlands.
@martingeddes A sign:

"Do you believe in sagas? Then the following is interesting for you: Wotan's wild gangs hunted here and Noah stranded on the rocks with his ark - how else can the many different footprints of animals that are left behind in the rock be explained?"
@martingeddes 🧐Wikipedia on Anglo-Saxon royal genealogies 🤔

Norse and Greek mythology...
Adam, Noah, Sceaf, Shem...
Thor son of king Memnon by Tróan, daughter of Priam of Troy.
Priam is given a pedigree of classical Greek ancestors, including Jupiter and Saturn...
@martingeddes "Natural Monument Isterberg - 68 meters elevation

The Isterbergers are convinced (with a slight wink) that Noah's Ark was stranded here. Where else should the impressive footprints embedded in the rocks come from, if not from the descending animals?"
