The Culture & Land of the People Who Originally Worshiped Your Gods

I was reading through the 'Do you acknowledge where your beliefs come from?' thread and it made me wonder - Do most people immerse themselves in the culture and history of the people that originally worshiped their Gods?

For both people who follow a reconstructionist practice or worship a certain cultures pantheon, and those who have just one deity or several from different cultures - Do you feel a connection to that(those) culture(s)? If so then why and do you feel it's important to the relationship you have with your Deities?

I'm interested in this, because I'm really green to the whole "pagan community". I've known Christians who had something of a fetish for all things Jewish(aside from the religion's take on Christ obviously).

So do most Kemetics have a passion for Egypt/ Hellenics for Greece etc.? Do many modern pagans feel the need to make pilgrimages to these places or anything like that?

I'm looking forward to hearing what you think.
