In the DJ group on FaceBook member Ed Anderson is providing us with information on his Ægyptian campaign. A lot of information as a matter of fact. At the same time we're also talking about the Shamash of Ærth, a people who are sort of an equivalent to our Jews, though they really are not.
So I've decided to provide a history of the Shamash and how events in their past made them different from the people that we know.
The Ljil Mörön
The oldest name for the river that I can find would appear to be "Ljil Mörön", where it came from I do not know.
The river ends at the Volga Delta, which gives out at the Northwest corner of the Caspian sea. On Ærth the Caspian is a body of water some unknown area in size, unknown because I can't find the information on the Internet.
In any case it would appear that on Earth and Ærth there were people living in the Volga Delta, among whom were a people who for some reason decided that they could find a better life somewhere else. So sometime around 11,000>, and with the urging of their immediate neighbors, they migrated to the lands west of the delta, a region I can find no information of on the Web. In any case it would appear that they found the life didn't suit them here so they moved on. As near as I can tell they kept migrating, moving south into and through the Caucasus until they reach the Halys River in what we know of as Central Anatolia. By then they were part of a people we know of as the Hatti, a Circassian speaking people as far as I know, who settled in the northern part of the Halys establishing the city of Hattusha around year 10,000>. The coming of the ancient Hittites and their conquest of Hattusha, which lead to certain Hatti clans fleeing south, will be in the next in this series.
