Why so many Swiss?

I’m Swiss, and I wanted to showcase a bit of Swiss history, especially how different Switzerland and the Swiss (or “Swiss”) people have been over time. The Hallstatt and Helvetii, while not really Swiss, were important cultures that inhabited the area of modern Switzerland during the Bronze Age and the Iron Age/Roman period respectively.

Although I do not rate the Swiss culture to be kind of an advanced civilization over the whole centuries (more a reward for having survived the challenge), I do like the idea to be able to choose a slightly different culture of the same origin over the centuries. Looking forward to see other culture mods to follow that path.

Great work as always. I am looking forward to a pack with your all cultures.

Uncle2fire @uncle2fire
