Etruscan a IE Anatolian lingo, hum, interesting, how did they get to
Northern Italy?

Bet that is story in its own right. Sort of like how some Celts got down to
what is turkey, forming Galatia..

Me, still trying to figure out how much of Norse myth is more two cultures
colliding, and mixing..

Vanir and Aesir.

One is fishing, sensual, farming. The other is war, cattle and like..

But how much of the norse tongues shows this?

Not if they can figure out the meanings of the Linear A from Crete, it will
be interesting.

How much of Basque is spanish or french loan words, and how much is
Latin/Germanic loan words, or more like how much is Phonecian/Berber or
Arabic loan words?
