I've got a WIP set in 600 BCE and I'm being as true to names and places as possible, but have been banging my head against the wall lately. When I originally started working on the piece there was going to be discord between petty chieftains, likely of the same tribe. Since I planned on using the archaeological sites of Hallstatt and Durrnberg, the tribe would obviously be Nori, which works for a play on ash, with my petty chieftain being Dur for the play on oak. BUT . . . I realized that I would have a much more interesting story and more prominent Geo-political issues to work with if I spread them out and included other tribes. The Boii always cause trouble, so I included them, and added the Volkai as well. That meant I needed to move the oak tribe further out. I put them in the Abnoba Mountains in the Schwarz Wald. The problem . . . I want to keep the oak reference, but that area was occupied be the Helvetii at the time. And I don't even like the name. I do like Alemanni, which is a Celtic name, but refers to a Germanic tribe that moved into the area about 1000 years later. I like the feel of the phrase, "The line of Dur runs through the Alemanni" more than, "The line of Dur runs through the Helvetii." I tell myself, it's just fiction, but there is always someone out there who will catches those little oddities and bring them to the attention to everyone who will listen. The book is complete, so this is just a matter of find and replace. The question is, replace with what? Will anyone aside for me and a couple of other odd ducks notice or care?
