Historically the Chaldeans were a semi-nomadic people from Arabia who occupied the city of Ur "of the Chaldeans." (Genesis 11:28) and neighboring lands. They are referred to in the accounts of Assyrian kings that date back to 884-859 BC. In 721 BC, a Chaldean ruler, despite great opposition, seized the throne of Babylon and reigned for ten years. Isaiah 39 tells of his efforts to excite the western states against Assyria. In 597 and 586 BC, under Nebuchadnezzar II, they conquered Judaea and captured Jerusalem. The Chaldean dynasty continued until the Persian invasion of 539 BC.

Answer2: From early times the Chaldeans were noted for their knowledge of mathematics and astronomy. In the days of Daniel a special cult of prognosticators who considered themselves skilled in the so-called science of divination were called Chaldeans.-Da 2:2, 5, 10; 4:7;5:7,11.
Chaldeans are the indigenous people of southern Iraq. Arabians then came to Iraq and began to establish the dominant Iraqi identity. Arabians intermarried with some Chaldeans and with other Mesopotamians creating the Arab ethnicity and mentality. The unifying religion of Islam helped solidify the idea of Arab ethnicity. However, some Chaldeans chose not to embrace Islam or an Arab identity and still consider themselves Christian Chaldeans.
RaciallyThe Chaldeans were a Semitic race, not dissimilar from southern Iraqis today.SociallyThe Chaldeans in biblical times were idol worshipers, but were also generally peaceful and non-belligerent. They became a constituent part of most of the Mesopotamian Empires (Akkad, Assyria, and Babylon) but never dominated them.Note: There is currently an ethnic group in Iraq styling itself as the "Chaldeans" who represent the descendants of the Biblical Era Chaldeans and practice Christianity as their chosen faith.
