The BNP peddle this myth as part of their 'British race' bullshit.
what does that mean
Which bit do they peddle ern?
and you'd never misquote, distort or outright lie to back up a spurious idea of racial purity would you ern?
The stuff about the Celts mixing in fully and accepting the Germanics...fits in nicely with their races=black or white issues....like what Lee Jasper does as well
the catagorisation of people innit
Like rosenberg and his catergorisations of people based on caranium size as an indicator of racial purity
If I knew who the fuck you were I could reply - but you seem to be one of those 'rolleyes' twats.
= the sign of a moron.
ive never met a welsh person who wasnt kind and considerate - and ive met quite a few.
i dont know if theyre a serperate race.
they are if they wanna be i suppose.
so what explanation would you give for the sudden disappearance of celtic culture from england (bar cumbria and cornwall) shortly after the germanic invasions?
odd thing to say.
Ah, so thats what makes them think they can stand in Wales and get away with it. Pricks.
Ethnic cleansing, and a mass emigration of British refugees (who were Christians for their sins) westwards to escape the Germanic 'heathens'
*bet is portugal*
edit: fuck, wrong mind
super bock me up
so why does the evidence of place names suggest that many celtic bubbles remained alongside the invaders? and why were the celtic christians so successful in reconverting the angles (before augustine & co)? the picture you paint is pure romance.
But still, the Prydain are one of the many races that may call themselves Welsh, agreed? (Am I doing this to death now, if so, sorry )
Some place names remained eg Pontefract, Thames (Tafwys), Dover (Dwfr), but not many. The last British place to hold out was Elmet (Elfed) in present day south Yorkshire.
However how much British carried through into the English language? Fuck all. Explain that, GCSE-boy. The picture you paint is Anglocentric Yookay Nationalism.
interesting article ern, thanks, though i'm a little suspicious of blood of the vikings-esque history! ps: the bit in the article about offa's dyke and ethnic cleansing is bollocks, as any cursory glance at the history of eighth century mercia will show. the interesting bit is, i think, the 'lost' period of the invasions themselves and the aftermath.
can you explain that in 100 words please
Welsh is a Saxon insult given to the British. It means 'foreign slaves/vassals'. (Weallas).
Why am I arguing with this Tom chap btw who until an hour ago thought that the West Saxons were Celts?
Few major towns in England have Celtic place names, but plenty of smaller places do. I don't think Thames is Celtic. Or maybe it's romano-british. not sure...
the tiny influence of the celtic language on old english suits my argument of the surprising absence of celtic culture in early anglo-saxon england! (and i aint one of your students ern, so enough of the silly remarks please)
erm... what the fuck?
Thames is from Tafwys can't you read???
Name all your heap big plenty small places then, cowboy...
Ok, I just put Prydain to avoud confusion over the word "Briton" (It could be taken, by some people as meaning anyone who lives in the modern day area that some people call Britain). I suppose I meant: "The Prydain (i.e. those who are descended from aincient Britons) are one of many races that, today can call themselves Cymraeg, no?"
in response to idaho's comment about the celtic ethnicity of hampshire i say
i'm sorry i don't have the evidence to hand. i'll try and dredge up an article when i can.
don't know which dictionary you're referring to - weallas = foreigners. i.e. cornwall is a conflation (correct me if i'm wrong) of the celtic word for themselves and the germanic name for them.
Separate names with a comma.
