@Bloodblender Made an account on this site just to reply to this 3 month old comment, lol.
You're correct that the Sami may have moved in at the same time as Germanic Indo-Europeans. This is debatable, and personally I think they came in a couple hundred or maybe a thousand years earlier, but there's not a whole lot of evidence either way. In any case they came in *close* to the same time, historically speaking...
However, outside of one ridiculous theory, there's a pretty strong consensus this was *FIVE* thousand years ago. Not even close to eight thousand. It's possible that the Sami moved in around eight thousand years ago, but not even remotely likely that Germanic Scandinavians moved in that long ago.
Just wanted to clarify ^-^
