(a) An investigation of the origins of the Neolithic farming village on Orkney Island
neolithic people of small stature
The Old Norse language has, as in the Orkneys - made a lasting impression on colloquial speech. As was the case in the Orkneys, the Norse dialect Norn was spoken up until the 18th Century. In the Latin chronicle Historia Norwegiae, written down in the 13th Century, two different peoples are mentioned living on the Isles when the Norwegians arrived, the Pap and the Peti. The Paps are described as people wearing long white garments, probably the Celtic monks. The Petis (Picts) are described as people of low stature (like Pygmies), having strange habits.

The extract below is from Chapter VI (De Orcadibus Insulis 'Concerning the Orkney Islands') and relates what was known or remembered in the 12th century of the pre-Norse inhabitants of Orkney (and, of course, Shetland, although Shetland is not mentioned), the Picts and the Papar (Peti and Papae).
These islands were at first inhabited by the Picts (Peti) and Papae. Of these, the one race, the Picts, little exceeded pigmies in stature; they did marvels, in the morning and in the evening, in building [walled] towns, but at mid-day they entirely lost all their strength, and lurked, through fear, in little underground houses. But at that time [the islands] were not called Orchades, but Pictland (terra Petorum) . . . And the Papae have been named from their white robes, which they wore like priests; whence priests are all called papae in the Teutonic tongue (Papae vero propter albas, quibus ut clerici induebantur, vocati sunt, unde in Theutonica lingua omnes clerici papae dicuntur). An island is still called, after them, Papey (Adhuc quaedam insula Papey ab illis denominatur). But, as is observed from their habit and the writings of their books abandoned there, they were Africans, adhering to Judaism (Sed ut per habitum et apices librorum eorum ibidem derelictorum notatur, Africani fuerunt, judaismo adhaerentes). In the days of Harold Fairhair, King of Norway, certain pirates, of the family of the most vigorous prince Ronald, set out with a great fleet, and crossed the Solundic sea; and stripped these races of their ancient settlements, destroyed them wholly, and subdued the islands to themselves.
The native inhabitants pf Orkney are described above as pygmies whereas the Papey settlers (apparently Celts from Ireland or Scotland) "were Africans, adhering to Judaism."
2. New French Source of Possible Value: Jacques Martin, 1727
Shalom , this book may interest u pretty much. The author, Jacques Martin, wasÂ a monk of St Maur congregation.
This Congregation was well know for its high level of erudition.
In this book the author described Celtic society and the link with the TORAH
Its in old French but very understandable for a man for whom French is a maternal language
"La religon des Gaulois tire des plus pures sources de l'antiquite "Â Volume 1
Par Jacques Martin, Academie des sciences, belles-lettres et arts, Adamoli, Charvin, Perachon, Rougnard, Bibliotheque du Palais des arts, 1727
My French is not very good but I skimmed through the work. I did not (so far) find anything revolutionary but some parts look interesting.
I shall endeavor to go through it some more and report back.
3. English Word from Hebrew. IS from "as."
We have the Hebrew word "AS" from the word root "A-S-H" or "E-S-H." This gives us "aseh" meaning "do, make." In verbal form it can become "ya-as" or simply "as".
In Hebrew verbal sounds are quite fluid so that "as" could easily have been rendered as "as" or as "es", or as "is."
This is also the root of the name "Esau" connoting "done," or "already made".
Esau gave us the Celtic god "Esus." According to Jacques Martin, 1727, the Greek deity "Zeus" is identical to the Celtic Esus.
