4.0 out of 5 stars Overall good work, with holes April 16, 2004
Verified Purchase
Capt does an excellent job tracing the 10 "lost tribes" of Israel into the European continent, citing recovered antiquities and more recent discoveries in existing collections, such as at the British Museum, covering dates up to roughly 150 BC. Likewaise, he seems to give an adequate account of the origin of the basic European "tribes" such as the Germans, the various Celts, etc., picking up their story ca. AD 600.
Where Capt falls short is in the linkage between the two eras. He has very little to connect the two--there are missing centuries in between. Well yes, he does make the linkage, but it is thin compared to the rest of the work. Just when, for example, did the Scythians become Franks? I would like to see a stronger case made for that transistional period.
However, having said that, his explanation of the migration of hte "lost tribes" is excellent. He provides solid documentation even though this book is aimed at a general "Biblical" audience rather than an academic audience of professional archeologists or geographers or such. While he does not use footnotes, the majority of his claims are noted in the text itself. He also supplies a good bibliography, various lists and tables, and other reference material at the end of the text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Filling in the holes of history..... December 30, 2003
Biblical archaeologists have always been the "black sheep" in historical circles. They, and their researches, are given validity only if their theories and subsequent proofs discredit the divine aspect of the Hebrew and Christian holy books. E. Raymond Capt is the single, most powerful ally of an accurate view of history, a history recognizing the Hebrew peoples as contributors to, and often catalysts of, world events.
The focus of this book is the migration paths of the twelve tribes of Israel. Documentation includes passages translated from existing and catalogued Assyrian and Babylonian tablets and an in-depth study of regional languages that track the various paths of the Hebrew peoples. Other reviewers have suggested that this book raises more questions than it answers. In truth, this book seeks to answer no questions. It seeks to bring into sharp focus the proofs that currently exist to accurately track the Hebrew peoples.
This book is a must for every student of history. Period

5.0 out of 5 stars History at it's best August 29, 2000
Where did the ten tribes of Israel disappear to? This book gives solid support for the wanderings and the destinies of God's covenant people. Don't wonder any longer. This book is excellent and provides sound supportive evidence to back up its claim. We need more people like E. Raymond Capt who are not afraid to divulge the truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book. June 19, 2001
By A Customer
This is an excellent book, with breadth far beyond its title. I recommend it to anyone interested in the history of the movements of the Hebrew tribes, especially the so-called "Lost Tribes". They are well documented by Dr. Capt in this fine little book.
(Disregard the silly bad review. You have to read a book before reviewing it.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! June 22, 2006
By CamR
This book is a very good study into what happen to the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel. Mr. Capt did a Great job in back tracking by using the clay tablets that were found in Assyria which list the tribes by the name which was used by the Assyrians which is called the House of Omri. This book is very in depth and very informative. I also noticed a person left one star because Mr. Capt did say anything about the Jews. Of course the Jew's wouldn't be metioned they weren't taken into exile until 586 bce, and that was by Babylonia and not Assyria. When reading about the Ten Tribes people need to know that the ten tribes were not Jews. Over all I give five stars and it is a must have for a historian or an avid Bible reader intrested in research.

Author Capt is testing whether European cultures could be descended from peoples captured and resettled by Assyria. This hypothesis isn't new, and he presents Assyrian cuniform tablet translations, cultural/place names and linguistic migration to support the hypothesis that European cultures are descended from the northern 10 tribes of Israel [Samarian region north of Jerusalem]. Do you remember that Europe was developed by invading tribes such as Scythians, Goths, Huns, and Gauls? Well, evidence indicates that these were from the 10 tribes that Assyrian moved to surround and protect Assyria's borders. [Analogous to Rome's resettling of groups.]
