Hi Jason, Would earnestly recommend the up-to-date info researched by Ian Wilson and colleagues in Before The Flood - not the bad-press stuff from Classical Greeks and other incomers. The Danaans early base seemed to be northern Anatolia and the Black Sea area, indicated by their naming of the biggest four rivers entering the northern Black Sea - all beginning with "D*N", including the Danube. [Rivers seem to retain their 'old' names more than say towns or even mountains - which is why some 'English' rivers have 'Welsh' names, like the Avon]. 'Before The Flood' tells us the Danaans were also expert metal- workers up to a millenium or more ahead of the rest of the world. In fact the Sumerian language seems to have absorbed the Danaan words for some metals and metal-working, along with a few other craft names. Another ancient 'myth' - of Jason and the Argonauts - confirms that those same craft-names were met when they sailed into Danaan Black Sea territory (looking for gold BTW, which the Danaan groups around Colchis (Georgia) obtained from their rivers by putting fleeces on the river beds). From much recent archeological and DNA-tracing research, now believe that many or even most so-called 'myths' have more reality behind them than we think. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
