A lot has already been said about the Book of Veles. Official science also says a lot about it, in the sense that it does not want to hear about “this forgery”. But nothing lasts forever under the moon. And new facts, new information, makes us turn to the topic of this book – the ancient history of the Rus. But the whole hitch is that it is difficult to prove both the authenticity of the texts of this book, and the fact that this book is a “clever forgery.” At the same time, you can do nothing, continuing to pound your own, insisting on rejection of such an inconvenient artifact as Velesova Kniga. And you can continue to extract facts, which are successfully done without stagnating in their development, researchers, who understand well that science is only a movement forward.
In this regard, consideration of an ancient (or not ancient) historical written monument using the method of DNA genealogy cannot but be of interest.
But the use of DNA genealogy data on the migration of the haplogroup R1a from the place of origin to the appearance on the East Russian Plain with the involvement of the material of the Veles book itself may be even more evidential material.
Therefore, the article by G.Z.Maksimenko in the journal “Bulletin of the Academy of DNA Genealogy” (Volume 7, No. 4 April 2014) entitled “Place and time of origin of the genus R1a and the path of their migration according to the Veles book using the latest scientific data in the field DNA Genealogy (21000 – 4900 ybp) “could not but interest me not only with its novelty, but also with its proximity to my own research.
And this is not surprising, in his article “Where does the Indian name of the river and lake Ganges come from on Sakhalin?”
I wrote about toponymic finds in the Far East associated with India. They are shown on the map below:
In this regard, the Indigirka river shown by G.Z.Maksimenko in Yakutia, near which the Ganges river I discovered flows, indicates the ancient habitation in this area of those who then spread these names to the Indian subcontinent. Today we know them as Aryans. But how long have they inhabited the same north that B.G. Tilak?
Meanwhile, DNA genealogy did the unthinkable, according to the bone remains found at the sites of Malta and Buret in the South of Siberia – it determined not only the age (24-21 thousand years ago), but also the characteristics of the genus of people who lived there, the so-called haplogroup – with markers R1 and R1a.
It is not correct to assume that having set off on a long migration of several tens of thousands of years towards Europe, the ancient carriers of this Aryan haplogroup simply left and set off. Naturally, in that distant period, especially before the glacial period, they perfectly lived in Western Siberia up to the Arctic Circle and the Urals. Otherwise, who could give names to the Indigirka, Ganges, Lena, and Yamal rivers. As for the first name, it is translated from the Evenk “indi giri” as “indie people”. Also Lena sounded like Laziness before, and Yamal, like Iyma. GZ Maksimenko drew attention to this in this article. Moreover, he connected the last two names with the names of the Veles Book.
Meanwhile, let us recall the two darkness of history from the Book of Veles, which all researchers stumble over. Here’s an excerpt from my article:
“Board 2a of the book of Veles:
Exodus of the Aryans to Russia. “ It has happened for two darkness until now. ”
Of course, the critics immediately dismissed this “exaggeration”, with a stretch agreeing for 2 thousand years BC. But the “darkness” did not go anywhere. Twenty thousand years cannot be dismissed so easily. Here is what I.Yu. Dodonov: “ There is reason to believe that the legend of the “two darkness” of the “Book” is a vague memory of the era of the maximum of the last (Valdai) glaciation … “”.
Now the information of DNA genealogy about such an ancient habitat, such a haplogroup R1a close to modern Rus in Southern Siberia, allows us to calmly accept this age. Since it does not at all contradict the real fact of the existence of carriers of this genus 21-24 thousand years ago in Western Siberia.
That is, before migrating from Siberia to the east, carriers of the haplogroup R1a could quite comfortably have lived there, in Western Siberia, for more than one millennium, until a cold snap came.
Attention B.G. Tilaka, who, according to the results of the study of the Vedas and the Avesta, turned beyond the Arctic Circle, which resulted in his amazing book The Aryan Homeland in the Vedas, led him to the conclusion about the ancient habitation of the ancestors of the Aryans in the North. That was due to the favorable climate before some kind of disaster, or, according to some researchers, before the pole shift.
Apparently, while the climate was mild, Siberians of the genus R1a in the first millennia of their existence populated Siberia up to the Arctic Circle without any problems, but also expanded further south to Southeast Asia (India, China). Partially promoted to Europe. In the east, their habitat, apparently, was limited to Kamchatka, in the west by the Urals.
And what is the connection between the information of the Book of Veles and Siberian toponymy. GZ Maksimenko drew attention to this in his article. Let’s show them briefly.
Citing the translation of excerpts from the Veles Book (tablet 23-III), where the Ner people are mentioned, the Lena River (Lena) and Belogora, the Penzh River (“Look for Penge, a lot of gold. Lives richly “ ) (Penzhina) from tablet 5.a-II, he writes:
“The Nera River is a tributary of the Indigirka, which flows into the area of the Ust-Nera settlement. These are gold-bearing rivers on the borders of Yakutia, Magadan Region and Khabarovsk Territory. The hydronym Indigirka is based on the Even generic name Indigir – “people of the indie clan”. On the way of the Indigirka stream there is Belaya mountain in the area of the village of the same name, which apparently bore the name of Belogor in ancient times …. The region of Ust-Nera – Oymyakon is known as the North Pole of Cold. The population is mainly specialized in gold mining. There is a mention of the Lena River, passing in the VC under the name Lena. This is the largest river in northeastern Siberia, originating in the area of the lake. Baikal and flows into the Laptev Sea (…).
The Penzhina River is located in the Kamchatka Territory. It is a gold-bearing river with its own mines. The river originates in the Kolyma Upland, in the upper reaches it flows in a deep valley, then along the intermountain basin. It flows into the Penzhinskaya Bay of the Sea of Okhotsk ” …
A number of amazing Kolb place names are also shown on the map of the Far East. In the book “Kolp. Country of the Swan “I gave numerous identical toponyms, showing that this name in the Old Russian language means” Swan “. These hydronyms go, starting from Chukotka, where there are two lakes with this name, to Sakhalin – also two lakes with this name. One lake Kolba is shown in the Magadan region. These hydronyms, having found themselves after thousands of years already in Eastern Europe, changed to Kolp, Kolp – the city of Kolpino near St. Petersburg, Kolpinsee lake in Germany, etc.
The curious thing about this is that the transition “b” → “n” took place in the history of the Aryan language much closer to modern times, 5-4 thousand years ago. Here I cannot but turn to the linguistic law of Jacob Grimm. This shift of consonants “b → p” is described in the third act of this law. It took place thousands of years ago in the IE language, or in the language of our Aryan ancestors, during the transition of voiced consonants into Germanic plosives.
It turns out that the discovery of the genus R1a in Siberia, the discovery of the whole Malta-Buret culture is an indicator of the ancestral home of the Indo-Europeans with its wide distribution from the Urals to Kamchatka. In the Veles Book this moment, apparently, is noted.
And apparently a fragment of this community was the territory of the Russian North, where the remarkable Indologist N. Guseva showed a number of “Indian” hydronyms of the Ganges between Lake Ladoga and Onega.
