The term Hamitic originally referred to the peoples said to be descended from Hamone of the Sons of Noah according to the Bible.
Croatians Besides the already mentioned Sarmatian tribes acknowledged as being the same ancient Massagetas, there are other peoples that Hamitic hypothesis be regarded as Sarmatic although probably of different origin. Among them, the Croats or Croatians are worth considering since their name has been perpetuated from ancient times until today, and are still recognized as a nation even though almost completely Slavicized as well as Bulgarians and other peoples.
Their exact ethnic classification is complex as they share common features not only with Sarmatians but also with Huns: It is a fact that most of the present-day Croatians are genetically different from the Slavic peoples and very close to Kurds and Armenians, who are still inhabiting in the same area of their origins.
Besides the genetic factor, there are historic records that point out to a Hurrian identity of Croats: In a later period, also Croats dwelled in the Carpathian area.
Orosius referred to them as "Aryan Horites" notice that Horites is the name of Hurrites in the Bible ; then also Zachariah the Rhetor speaks of them as the "Aryan Hrwt".
Croatians spoke an Iranic language then, and their rulers had Iranic names. Since the 6th century c. The assignment of colours to represent the four cardinal points is typical of Iranian cultures, and that is why their different territories were called that way. Their coat of arms, composed by red and white squares in a chessboard style, is of Iranic origin as well.
It was during the period of the Great Migration of the Peoples that the Croats moved westwards and their main settlement, the "Great Croatia", extended by the 10th century c.
By that time they were strongly Slavicized, before they moved southwards and settled in their present territory by the Adriatic Sea.
Following their history since their origins until modern times, it is evident a sequence of events that link them with the Hungarian peoples: The Mitanni ruled over the Hurrites, and both peoples migrated to Central Asia during Assyrian domination over their land.
The area of Khwarezm was next to the province of the Persian Empire called Harauvatya, regarded as the original Croatia. Then we find the "Sarmatian Hurrians" having their own realm, the Red Croatia, in Khazarian territory next to the Magyars' land in Ukraine.
Both peoples were driven westwards by the Rus' expansion and chose the Danubian Basin as their new settlement. The Croatians dwelled near the Magyars, first at the north of them and subsequently moved close to the southern Hungarian border.
The Croats followed the same destiny of most Eurasian peoples in Eastern Europe, that were either Slavicized, Germanized or Romanized, while Hungarians were the only exception, achieving in keeping their roots and building their own national identity.
The Croatians' definitive territory between Hungary and the Adriatic Sea was still under Austrian-Hungarian sovereignty, like in ancient times the Hurrites were under Mitanni rule. Even though the modern Croatian language is Slavic, attempts to restore the old tongue are being done, mostly through the rural dialects that have kept Iranic archaisms and still present traces of Hurrian-Mitanni terms.

Identity and Assimilation in Europe Concerning the peoples here defined as Eurasians, they have left a genetic legacy in most of present-day European nations, though hardly a cultural or linguistic heritage — with the exception of Hungary.
Archaeological findings, external written records and some toponyms are the main or sometimes the only witnesses of their presence. As well as Scythians and Sarmatians, the largest number of them have been Slavicized Bulgars, Croatians, etc. In the Caucasus area, tribes of the same peoples have evolved into a more defined Iranic identity Ossetians or else a Turkic ethnicity.From one point of view South Africans cannot boast about building Axum, KMT, or Timbuktu, because they, as a group, played no role in it.
The only ‘race” in Ancient Egypt that built the pyramids was the Egyptians themselves. THE Hamitic hypothesis is well-known to students of Africa. It states that everything of value ever found in Africa was brought there by the Hamites, allegedly a branch of the Caucasian race.
Seligman formulates it as follows. Aug 12, · Africa was long been a mysterious, magical, and downright frightening place. The northern parts were explored first, leaving the rest of the land long shrouded in . Hamites (from the biblical Ham) is a pseudo-historical term in 19th and early 20th century ethnology and linguistics for a division of the Caucasian race and the group of related languages these populations spoke.
The appellation Hamitic was applied to the Berber, Cushitic, and Egyptian branches of the Afroasiatic language family, which, together with the Semitic branch, was thus formerly.
Introduction. The study of African history as an independent and autonomous focus of scholarship is a recent development. Until the late colonial period, it was widely believed among Western historians that Africa, south of the Sahara, had no “civilization” and thus no history.
Hamitic is a historical term for the peoples supposedly descended from Noah's son Ham, paralleling Semitic and ashio-midori.com was formerly used for grouping the non-Semitic Afroasiatic languages (which for this reason were described as "Hamito-Semitic"), but since, unlike the Semitic branch, these have not been shown to form a phylogenetic unity, the term is obsolete in this sense.
