Survive the Jive

Celtic Genetics and Paganism explained...

Celts are known for tartan, faeries, druids, bagpipes and the British Isles - but the origins of the Celtic culture lie in the Unetice culture of Bronze age central Europe and it spread out with the Hallstatt and La Tène cultures. In this history documentary, I look at the genetic evidence for the spread of Celts into Britain and Ireland in the Iron Age, as well as the Galatian Celts into Anatolia. Then I examine some Celtic archaeological artefacts such as the Gundestrup cauldron and the Marlborough bucket and I introduce the viewer to some of the basic aspects of Druidry and the Indo-European religion of the ancient Celts.

In an ancient Anglo-Saxon village in England, next to a haunted Inn, there lies a prehistoric stone that, since before records began, has been associated with the devil. The locals have a way to ensure that the devilish power of the stone does not harm them though. They turn it over once a year on the 5th November. The stone was most likely the central marker of the þingstede or folk moot for the Anglo-Saxon hundred of Shebbear.

"In Search of the Earth-Mother of Anatolia"

A documentary which looks at the root of the Earth Mother goddess common to European pagan religions; call her Cybele, Rhea, Ceres, or whatever - she comes from Anatolia and spread out in various forms from the Neolithic to the Iron Age. One late form was Artemis of Ephesus, an Anatolian version of a Greek goddess who was then sent back to Europe in her new form. This film focuses mainly on the Lycians, who were an early Indo-European people in Anatolia who seem to have preserved more of the pre-Indo-European Anatolian religion and culture than most.

There is a terrible new development in Medievalism. A push from activists to completely ban the use of the word Anglo-Saxon.
It started with grievance monger Rambaran-Olm complaining that Anglo-Saxon is was racist and exclusionary and that AS studies are too white. Her blogs and complaints resulted in the International Society of Anglo-Saxonists (ISAS) agreeing to change its name.

I am joined by two chaps, Angriff and Redbeard, who wish to argue that the Norse Goddess Freyja is the same as the West Germanic goddess of the dawn Eastre/Ostara. They have a great theory that deserves your attention.

How did people live in the Bronze Age? In this film you can learn about the Bell Beaker folk who came to Britain around 2500 BC and brought metallurgy skills with them - they were first to work gold, tin or copper in Britain and they were the first to trade valuable foreign goods such as glass beads from the Mediterranean and Amber jewellery from the Baltic.

The British Beaker folk has strong genetic ties to the Beaker folk of the lower Rhine in Holland who were themselves related to the people of the Single Grave Culture - a variant of the Corded Ware culture which was evidently the source of most of the subsequent Indo-European cultures of the world. Genetics and archaeology show how the Bell Beaker and Corded Ware people were related to the Proto-Indo-European Yamnaya people of the Russian steppes - and how the Neolithic Kurgan burial mounds from Russia were the model for the early round barrows that the Bell Beaker folk of the Wessex culture in England built for their dead. I look at the amazing finds from such burial mounds in England - mainly the rich hoards from the graves near Stonehenge, which are kept in the Wiltshire museum in Devizes. This video also shows the connection of Bronze Age Britain to the Battle Axe culture of Scandinavia via the Amber trade routes.

Interpreting myths - methods that work and methods that do not.

I am joined by my friend Redbeard to discuss comparative mythology and its many schools; from Substantive to Functional, Naturalist to Esoteric; Atheistic interpretations from Joseph Campbell and James Frazer, to more advanced Traditionalist readings from Evola, Guenon, and Eliade and modern scientific approaches from people like Dumézil and David Anthony.

When the Romans conquered Britannia in AD 43, the Britons resisted at first but were gradually Romanised. This means they adopted Roman customs, latin language and Roman gods, but they also preserved some of their old Celtic ways and even some of the Celtic gods. In this film I look at Romano-British syncretism and the merging of Celtic and Latin deities such as Sulis-Minerva who had her cult centre in Bath. I visited Chedworth Roman Villa and Bath spa to film this, as well as several museums around the world!

Rune Synth #3

Egil took out his knife and stabbed the palm of his hand with it, then took the drinking-horn, carved runes on it and smeared them with blood. He spoke a verse:

"I carve runes on this horn,
redden words with my blood,
I choose words for the trees
of the wild beast’s ear-roots;
drink as we wish this mead
brought by merry servants,
let us find out how we fare
from the ale that Bard blessed"

Video as magic, runic carvings, Anglo-Saxon sword (replica of the Thames scramasax/Seax of Beagnoth) which features all the futhorc runes, Ruthwell cross with runes, Swedish runestones, Gotland picture stones and messing around with effects on Adobe Premiere.

The Slavic peoples used to worship pagan gods like Perun, Svarog and Veles. In this video we look at a group of Polish pagans called GROMADA BIAŁOŻAR during their May day rite. I also discuss the genetic origins of the Slavs, the Slavic expansions into the Balkans in the migration era, the conversion of slavs to Christianity and the linguistic origin of Proto-Slavic language.

he Norse god Týr is sometimes called a battle god of minor significance, while others argue. based on etymology that he was once the chief god of the Germanic peoples - a sky father. However, perhaps neither argument is entirely correct. In this video I am joined by Angriff and Dr Boaz and we will discuss Týr and the Proto-Indo-European sky father in the context of Georges Dumézil's theory that he was in fact a secondary sovereign god whose principle attribute was neither paternal nor related to battle, but judicial matters!

La Vallée, also known as Obscured by Clouds, is a 1972 French film written and directed by Barbet Schroeder and set in the jungles of Papua New Guinea. It was heavily criticised for being exploitative but critics failed to realise it was a critique of the post-colonial mindset and also a critique of the orientalist mindset of many liberal and left wing people who project the ideal of the noble savage on to traditional cultures. This is made really explicit in this scene in which the Australian Olivier puts the selfish and romantic Viviane in her place and reminds her of who she really is - a white Western woman.

Cognitive evolution and Indo-Europeans.

Modern population genetics shows that an enormous genetic replacement occurred in late Neolithic Europe which is associated with the arrival and diffusion of Indo-European languages. I am speaking to Dr Edward Dutton aka The Jolly heretic about what the implications of this event are in terms of the cognitive evolution of Europeans - can cognitive archeogenetics help us to understand the massive success of the Indo-European cultures over the Bronze Age compared with their Neolithic predecessors? Were the Indo-Europeans really clever chaps? Watch and find out!

Henry Williamson is one of my favourite authors. He had an unsentimental and pure view of nature which informed his general views on life and enabled him to write some of the most widely celebrated books on animals and the English countryside every written. For several reasons, I feel a personal connection to his work, which I shall explain in this stream.

Notre Dame in memoriam ~ Even though I am a pagan I believe Gothic cathedrals are the best buildings in the world.The term Gothic was applied as a pejorative in Italy because the work was associated with the Germanic barbarians who invented it. Giorgio Vasari used the term "barbarous German style" in his 1550 Lives of the Artists to describe it.

To me English Gothic cathedrals are the perfect architectural expression of the Northern soul. They remind me of forests and trees. In this video tribute to the burned Notre Dame cathedral, I show the beauty of four English cathedrals; York Minster, Wells cathedral, Exeter cathedral, and Winchester cathedral. All of them are medieval structures which took centuries to build. All of the quotes in the video come from the famous art critic, John Ruskin, who loved Gothic architecture and promoted its revival in the 19th century.

DNA evidence has shed new light on the origins of the Indian people, the Hindu religion and the Sanskrit language. Pastoralists of the Andronovo culture from the Bronze age steppe invaded India from the North West and brought Indo-European languages to the Indian subcontinent. These pastoralists were ethnically white people, and they mixed with Indians to create the modern genetic diversity of India. This theory has been developed over 200 years, and has often been attacked as a colonial fable or even as Nazi propaganda, but now genetic science has vindicated the Victorian scholars who said the roots of the Aryans lay in the Corded Ware culture of Europe.

The bee is highly esteemed in Indo-European traditions, occupying a privileged position above other animals. This is due to the symbolic significance of honey and mead.

The bee itself is most highly regarded by the Baltic people, whose pagan customs are thought to most closely resemble the original Aryan tradition. They honour the fertility god of bees, babilas, by housing bee hives in wooden effigies. The Lithuanians also have a Bee Goddess called Austeja.

4500 years ago, just around the time that Stonehenge was completed, Britain was invaded by a new people from Holland who replaced the henge builders. They left burial mounds all around Stonehenge and carved images of weapons on the henge itself. The plains around Stonehenge contain one of the densest concentrations of Bronze Age barrows in Britain. There are over 300 within within a 2 mile radius around Stonehenge. The area has been the subject of archaeological research since the 18th century. The Indo-European barrow builders of the Dutch beaker culture loved gold and were more warlike than the Neolithic natives who built Stonehenge. We can look at the DNA of the Boscombe bowmen who were buried near Stonehenge, in order to understand more about the Bell Beaker folk. This video also looks at grave goods from the Normanton Down Barrows.

King Alfred the Great of Wessex laid the foundations for the formation of the English nation. He is the only English king with the title of Great and our current Queen is descended from him. However a professor of gender studies at an American university once opposed a statue of him being put up in New York because he was a "straight, white male"

Oh Great Ægir (Ēagor),
whose power hath our sea-girt isle
For ages guarded!
Father of the 9 cold crashing waves,
Lord of the gracious servants who received the gods most worthily,
Oh most generous host, whose ale sated the highest of high,
I humbly call now for your magnanimous favour!
May your briney domain
The invader claim
And may Rán’s crashing daughters
O'erturn the seaborne swine
To keep the whale’s way clear
and guard the estate of the heirs of Hengest.
Invading enemies,
Take as your blot.
Their blood as libations,
A tribute to your strength.
Great terror may be felt
In the arms of the daughters of the friend to divine guests.
Perilous is the path of those
who ride the roof of his hall.
Care-worn are many
Who travel the whale road,
Yet by wyrd it is woven
That we with mirth
offer our praises
to your ever moving power.

Survive the Jive is a channel about history, ancient religions and nature. I'm a qualified historian, a credited journalist, and documentary film maker. I focus mainly on Indo-European cultures and most specifically on Germanic/Norse paganism but I also make videos on other subjects too.

Since 2007, StJ has been an alternative media source; promoting anti-consumerist and anti-materialist perspectives. The channel promotes traditional cultures as a way to oppose globalisation. The channel takes a holistic approach to programming of all sorts that inform, educate and improve us. It sometimes covers scientific topics but is philosophically anti-materialist.
