A Black Irish Strand?
Ancient Tin Ingots Found in Israel Came From England

Theres so much we don't know about the past

Robert E. Howard struck a lot of ink into paper writing of black-haired Gaelic heroes of history and prehistory. I married into a family who had an oral history of black-haired Irish ancestry.
There are folk references to invaders, such as referenced by Seamus McManus in his History of the Irish Race. There have been DNA samplings that indicate a littoral kinship of people of far-western European cultures, obviously linked by seafaring. There is also the perspective of the "Wild Geese" Irish mercenaries who would serve under the Spanish [like Darby Gland] and French, spitefully fighting against their oppressor nation in any way possible, for the American rebels, and even in one incident in which Irish Americans attacked British-Ruled Canada.
Irish-Anglo strife was not always a one-way-fight with various sideshows. In the Middle Ages English clergy complained that English boys were being sold to Irish masters and there were the Dubliners, pirates of the Irish Sea who gained a foothold for some time in Britain.
The quest for tin to arm bronze armies in the great age that would pass accompanied by the attacks of the "Sea Peoples" around 1,200 B.C. has long been known to have taken even Semitic seafarers, such as Hanno, to Devon, in what would become Cornish England, where men such as my father-in-law were known to have darker hair and skin than other Englishmen. Was this due to descent from earlier Europeans or contact with races of the Middle Sea who aggressively sought trading connections and colonies in Cornwall up until Pytheas the Greek made his voyage there in the 300s B.C., and beyond to Ultima Thule, where he saw an ocean that "heaved like a lung" of ice? Whatever the case, "black" was a term used to denote black hair in medieval and early modern times among western Europeans.
There is much archaeological evidence that places the darker-haired Caucasian races of classical antiquity in North America, including extensive collections of alphabetic shards and an inscription by Hanno himself, who also circumnavigated Africa circa 700 B.C. However, if ships trading from the Middle Sea up to Devon, not far from Liverpool, where English voyages of westward discovery would typically embark in modern times, could sail knowingly or be driven by storm to the shores of North America, why couldn't such ships simply have been piloted or storm-driven over to Ireland?
The academic answer is that Caucasian races have always been uniquely retarded and addicted to farm and hearth and afraid of the unknown, while Asian, Amerindian, Australasian and African races are so adventuresome and awesomely skilled in exploration, that their stone age sailors surpass Caucasian sailors of the stone age, bronze age and iron age levels of technology.
This is the house of the mind the academic historian is directed to reside within, pondering facts through a veil of dampening mist. This is why the long-known information in this article is presented as a new surprise, for the ancients could not know where they got their tin, with only the modern archaeologist gifted with the ability to know what our ancestors were too stupid to know about their own lives. This daunting mist of self-hate is also why only a non-academic amateur historian can be qualified to weigh the evidence of our so avidly erased past.
