Historically, Berber nations spoke the Berber languages , which are a branch of the Afroasiatic language family. The Romans also used the word to refer to their neighbours to the north, in Germania roughly the area that is Germany today , as well as to Celts , Iberians , Gauls , Goths , and Thracians. Among the oldest written attestations of the word Berber is its use as an ethnonym in a document from the 1st century AD Periplus of the Erythraean Sea. Although these tribal names differ from the names used in those classical sources, they are nevertheless probably related to the modern Amazigh.
