Much of what the "Germania" tells us is meanwhile highly doubted.

    Overall it is a very thought provoking book. The author delves deep into a subject with very little historical evidence. Some very outlandish theories are mentioned though very little evidence is given to support them. The author leaves it completely up to the reader to determine if they buy into the arguments.
