Geschichte Scientists believe that many of the languages of Europe descended from one language called Proto-Indo-European (PIE, as its commonly called). There are no written records of this language; linguists have examined similarities in later languages.
Proto-Germanic It is believed that PIE evolved into several different language families, including the Indo-European group. Many language groups in Europe are Indo- European in origin. One such language that existed long ago is called Proto-Germanic.
Proto-Germans The Proto-Germanic culture originally existed in eastern Europe, possibly where you would find the Ukraine today. They eventually moved across Europe, taking their language with them.
Wandering Folks They moved across Europe in several waves called Voelkerwanderungen. (people/folk migrations). They settled in many places, even crossing into England. Over the centuries, the languages spoken in different lands evolved apart from one another. That is why they are similar, yet so different.
