Our Forefathers: The Gothonic Nations: Volume 1 : A Manual of the Ethnography of the Gothic, German, Dutch, Anglo-Saxon, Frisian and Scandinavian Peoples Paperback / softback
Gudmund Schutte (1872-1958) was a renowned Danish historian, anthropologist and philologist.
First published in 1933, as the English translation of a 1926 Danish original, this book forms one of two volumes by Schutte on the ethnography of the Gothic, German, Dutch, Anglo-Saxon, Frisian and Scandinavian peoples.
The text is notable for its use of a systematic framework, following the principle that 'homogeneous matter should always be presented in homogeneous columns under precisely the same headings and in the same order'.
Illustrative figures and textual notes are included.
This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in perspectives on early North European history and ethnography.
