We made a goof. Sutton Hoo is not in Surrey, but near Woodbridge a small town in Suffolk.

+H VonWolfenstein In reference to King Oswald taking refuge on the island of "Lona", it's actually called Iona (with an i) so there's another mistake for you.

What happened to the millions of Britannic Celts? Genetic studies show that most indigenous English people are as Celtic as they are Germanic, so mass extermination is somewhat a myth.
Fred Garvin (9 days ago)
There is no such thing as Celtic genes you tart
Stu McCabe (25 days ago)
The latest genetic evidence shows that today's inhabitants of Britain have inherited 67% of their genes from the people who were here at the end of the last ice age and only 33% from the Anglo- Saxon "invasions". In other words, the native population was not replaced, but there was significant immigration and a very significant cultural/language change.
Fred Garvin (9 days ago)
Britons.
cambs 01 (23 days ago)
So absolutely no genes from the Normans, The Vikings, The Huguenots, The Jews, Chinese, Afro-carribean, Eastern European,. Turkish Cypriot, Greek Cypriot, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian, Kenyan Asian, Ugandan Asian, Romani, Italians or anyone else who may of turned up on a boat in the last 900 years then?

15 year old Edward in AD1975 being crowned king is pretty cool, I personally would like a go in his time machine. Surely going from 1975 to 978 would cause a few language difficulties. Also when was Elizabeth II’s second coronation?

Germanic means Lechian Empire, in old romnan BROTHERS... Germans were called people like Poles, Czechs Russians and so on back Ren(Rhen) river... Hello. Check out how Sasanids now called Saxons and Angelos and now called Anglosaxons from middle east invaded an Roman behalf and setteled in Europe around 1500 years ago. They "created" England- Angland, overtook France and Italy. They were at firs supposed to help Romans to fight Celts and Lechian Empire which had always border on Ren(Rhen) river. Good luck. Ps Project Disclosure on yt. Lagiewka bumper on yt. Lalak/Skwarek on yt have also done a LOT of reaserch in what you are doing.

I admit that my knowledge of ancient geography is somewhat lacking, but it certainly looks like the map shown at 6:00 in the video is indicating that England included Ireland at the time of King Alfred, which seems a little unlikely. Am I interpreting that map correctly?

The DNA tests do NOT show that they were completely wiped out, it shows that the previous inhabitants were either wiped out OR forced off their land. They would after all have a very similar DNA pattern to the Celts that were not displaced.

Already knowing most of what isn't taught in schools, vid's such as these provide excellent depth and perspective, of course being someone who thinks laterally yet with empirical values I'm required to check each new fact or factoid out with at least four separate corroborations, so thankx smartass, you've just given me an extra 1,000 hours work ;-)

"Edward was crowned king in 1975" - NO, he was crowned in 975. Listen and it's unmistakable that the narrator says "nineteen seventy-five'.

Ummmmmmmmm ......,.what do you have to be proud of ? Your ancestors were strong and real patriots. You men and women today are cowards. You are giving away the land your forefather fought and died to preserve for YOU. You let people from other countries come in and take over and tell you what to do. You will soon be a minority in your own land. Then it won’t be your land anymore. Cowards.

Yeh. Here’s a fact ... they weren’t BLACK. Like today’s globalists are trying to say. Taking away the history of the White Europeans little by little to satisfy the global agenda to diversify every inch of the planet and eradicate white peoples from history AND from the future. Trying to dilute us with diversity until we breed with other races and white is no longer a race.

Speaking as an Anglo-Saxon myself, the goddess Frig, also spelled Fricg, also known as Eorþe, wasn’t anything to do with Venus, she embodied nature, animals, fertility of soil and the earth itself (her name is where the modern name for the planet comes from). Also, the European settlers didn’t practice human sacrifice, that was a Celtic thing. Otherwise, fairly accurate. In addition, all English monarchs are Anglo-Saxon, as are most (or all depending on your politics) English people, so there hasn’t been a last Anglo-Saxon king, and if we can sort ourselves out, there never shall be one.

Seeing that the English are descended - not just from the Angles - but also from other Germanic tribes - the Jutes and the Saxons ; Angle- land - land of the Angle ( England) could also have ended up being called 'Jute- land' or 'Saxon - land'. Were it not for a historical querk ,what is now known as English could also have been called 'Jutlish' or 'Saxonish'. Interestingly ,the Welsh word for the English is 'Saeson' which translates as 'Saxons' , the Welsh word for the English tounge is 'Saesneg' translating literally as 'Saxonish' . The Welsh word for England is 'Lloegr' deriving from the Welsh word 'Coll' meaning lost . So the Welsh word for England - 'Lloegr' translates roughly as 'Lost land' - the lands of eastern Britain - where originally ,Welsh was once spoken , but was eventually ' lost' to the invading Germanic tribes...........

My Great Grandmother and her husband referred to anyone South of the Scottish borders as being Saxonak!The Anglo's and their power came to an end with the death of King Harold in 1066, at the Battle Of Hastings! Enter the French! Bad news!Bringing with them their sickening Zionist stuff. Their privileged blood line! Or at least what they thought was The Planet's Bespoke bloodline. That stemming from the genetic line of the Royal House Of Judah!And here we are today guys still all being manipulated, exploited, taxed to death, our children enslaved.

The video implies thursday is of viking origin. This is a mistake; thursday derives regularly from “thunores daeg” just as wednesday derives regularly from “wodanes daeg”. Notice the days of the week are the only place in modern english where the ancient “es” genitive persists... it has become the modern “ ‘s” possessive in modern english.
