    Hopefully further testing in the future will give some answers.
    'The Heruli are believed to have formed part of the Chernyakhov culture,[42] which, although dominated by the Goths and other Germanic peoples,[20] also included Bastarnae, Dacians and Carpi.[43] The Heruli are thus archaeologically indistinguishable from the Goths.[42][44]' 'In his 6th century work Getica, the historian Jordanes, based in Constantinople, wrote that the Heruli had been driven out of their homeland in Scandinavia by the Danes.[28] This has been read as implying Heruli origins in the Danish isles '

    Very interesting where did the Danes expel them from, Zealand ?
