The Bretons left Britain to get away from the Anglo-Saxons, and now, 1500 years later, the modern day English are migrating to Brittany, buying up old farms and cottages there, driving up local housing prices and making some of the locals unhappy.
Oh the Irony

Sarmatian tribes have been settled there like in other parts of modern day France, if you want to accept it or not, and note: i did not say bretons were not pure aryan celts, i just said Sarmatians were settled in Bretagne, ok...?

 WHat is an aryan celts?? This is a NAZI philosophy. Hey, I'm not saying anything against the Alans, the Alans did settle in France  (I'm not sure if they had any durable influence). the Alans were formidable cavalry warriors with their trademark dogs. but sincerely I've never heard of them in Armorica. again I could be ignorant about that fact.

 You may have a wrong image of me, but I'm not a racist.

As Komnenos said, the Germanic culture appeared in southern Scandinavia and Northern Germany. The very oldest archaeological traces are from around 700BC in Southern Sweden and the Prussia iirc, and the earliest written record is from 300BC, when Pyteas placed the Teotones in what now is Sweden. There is no point in trying to say the Germanic people came from this or that place, since the word denotes the culture that appeared in Scandinavia/Germany as a probable mix of original inhabitants and immigrants. Similarly, there is no point in saying the Americans come from England, just because quite a few Americans traces their heritage to the English isles.

What archaeological evidence from around 700BC is connected to the Germanic tribes? And who have made the connection?

Oh, those people probably weren't Germanic, but for sure some of the ancestors of modern Germans.
