The Irish Family History Foundation is the co-ordinating body
for a network of government approved genealogical research
centres in the Republic of Ireland (Eire) and in Northern Ireland
which have computerised almost 40 million Irish Ancestral records,
primarily Church births (baptisms), marriages and deaths.
Irish Genealogy records for the surname BRAITH in Ireland
What does 'Brait' mean?
A rough diamond. ... Origin: Cf.W. Braith variegated,
Ir. Breath, breagh, fine, comely. ...
Source: Websters Dictionary ... (01 Mar 1998) ...
[The name diamond is derived from the ancient
Greek ἀδάμας (adámas), "proper", "unalterable",
"unbreakable, untamed", from ἀ- (a-),
"un-" + δαμάω (damáō), "I overpower, I tame".]
[The Scythians, a group of nomadic people that
ruled the steppes, left evidence of their wealth
and riches even if they did not leave evidence
of their demise. Some of the Scythian's gold
jewelry is museum-worthy, but their burial mounds,
or kurgans, are often looted by those who seek
to make a quick dollar on the black market.
Scythian jewelry and other Scythian artifacts
can be seen on display, but no one knows
what items may have eluded archeologists.]
At the Museums: All that Glitters is Scythian
. . .
Objects include bronze weapons and sculptures,
silver and bone ornaments, Scythian and Greek
ceramics, massive stone sculptures, and, of course,
gold. [Now for the historical "the Scythians are known
to have invaded Syria and Judea and sacked Nineveh
and Babylon," and An Account of Egypt notes certain
Ionians and Carians who had sailed forth for plunder
were compelled to come to shore in Egypt, and they
having landed and being clad in bronze armour, one
of the Egyptians, not having before seen men clad
in bronze armour, came to the fen-land and brought
a report to Psammetichos that bronze men had come
from the sea and were plundering the plain. Etc.]
Until the eighteenth century, most of our knowledge
of Scythian culture came from the fifth-century B.C.
historian Herodotus, who--in characteristically Greek
fashion--focused on the more barbaric habits of the
Scythians: their practice of consuming the blood
of the first man they killed in battle; accoutrements
fashioned from the skins of their enemies; their
fondness for cannabis and unwatered wine drunk
from gilded skulls. The Greeks, however, were
beholden to the Scythians, who controlled and
grew rich on the trade of grain from the steppe
that fed the urban centers of the Mediterranean.
