There's no conflict in the Holy Bible. It's clear as a bell.
The confusion comes about when the jews get involved in "translating" it.
They obviously did a GREAT job on the KJV translators, but fortunately it's
extremely easy to flush out the jewish LIES.

You keep forgetting that the Holy Bible has been translated into 73 TIMES as
many other languages as the English language. I have a copy of the Holy
Bible which was never touched nor influenced by the KJV translators, and the
differences are astounding, and very revealing.
The Danish letter which is the first letter of "Jutland" sounds like a cross
between a "j" and a "y", but Americans can't even begin to pronounce it.
Denmark didn't need to sit around and wait for England to invent a "j" so
they could name "Jutland" because they got it straight from their direct
ancestors, the Israelites.

It's doubtful that we've got enough empirical evidence yet to confirm these
timeframes, since faulty "carbon dating" screwed up so many REAL estimates
of when the Assyrians took the Israelites into captivity.
You also seem to have missed the point about most Israelites leaving Judaea
and going west [read: Spain, France, Ireland, and other points], long before
the Assyrians got there.
You also ignored the point that there was a lot of interraction between the
peoples of the Baltic, Ireland, and Israel, back and forth, by the seafaring
predecessors to the Vikings who had similar ships.
iow, there's no reason to believe that the Celts and the Israelites didn't
have identical ancestors.
But there are MANY reasons to believe that Israelites [read: the Holy Bible]
and jews [read: the Talmud] are from completely different planes );
