Hello everybody,
I'm david from limburg (belgium).Last year i did join the national geno-project(2.0), seems my y-dna is r1b more precise r1b-u106 (r-z306).
The dialect in my region (also dutch limburg and a part of germany) is a two-toned language. The only other two-toned germanic language is swedish- norwegian. We prolong our vowels a lot so it seems like we are singing (+it also seems like we're stupid according to my fellow compatriots( belgians)). When i was on holiday in sweden they recognised this singing and sometimes the swedish did better understand my limburgish dialect then my english ( pardon my english, it's not so good).
The ambrones, kimbren and teutones were germanic people, women and children too, that left their homeland (jutland-south-scandinavia) probably for climatological reasons around 105 bc.
They went on a long journey,seeking new land, fought a lot of battles (against romans and celts). Finally they were defeated by the roman Marius. This was a very able general, he tricked the cimbren, supposedly granting them free passage but attacking them anyway.
According to Jules Cesar the remnants of these tribes formed the aduatuci: a tribe in the region of limburg (belgic-dutch). The Ambrones are not mentioned...but ambiorix the leader (they had 2 kings)of the euburones (also a tribe in the limburg region) revolted against the romans around 60 bc, he was the instigator of the belgae rebellion. Ambiorix granted a roman general free passage but ambushed his troops and slaughtered 5000 soldiers. 50 year old sweet revenge?
Somebody got some input?
