Britainica dont say Macedonia was Greece or Greeks!
This encyclopedia is not Greek infested wikipedia!
Where does Britainica encyclopedia say what you claim propaganda gypsies!
As described in this article’s introduction,
the name Macedonia is applied both to a
region encompassing the present-day
Republic of Macedonia and portions of
Serbia, Bulgaria, and Greece and to the
Republic of Macedonia itself, the boundaries
of which have been defined since 1913. In
the following discussion, the name
“Macedonia” is used generally to describe
the larger region prior to 1913 and the area
of the present-day republic thereafter.
The Macedonian region has been the site of
human habitation for millennia. There is
archaeological evidence that the Old
European (Neolithic) civilization flourished
there between 7000 and 3500 BCE.
Seminomadic peoples speaking languages
of the Indo-European family then moved
into the Balkan Peninsula. During the 1st
millennium BCE the Macedonian region was
populated by a mixture of peoples—Dacians,
Thracians, Illyrians, Celts, and Greeks.
Although Macedonia is most closely
identified historically with the kingdom of
Philip II of Macedon in the middle of the 4th
century BCE and the subsequent expansion
of that empire by his son Alexander III (the
Great), none of the states established in that
era was very durable. Until the arrival of the
Romans, the pattern of politics was a
shifting succession of contending city-states
and chiefdoms that occasionally integrated
into ephemeral empires. Nevertheless, this
period is important in understanding the
present-day region, as both Greeks and
Albanians base their claims to be indigenous
inhabitants of it on the achievements of the
Macedonian and Illyrian states. www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/354223/Mac...
