    But one should distinguish between what he hears from the media, and what is actual fact.

    It is undoubtedly the media who are creating all the confusion, as they always do.

    It's true that at some periods in French history, a very high percentage of the nobility were Protestants, probably a lot higher (relatively speaking) than in the population as a whole. However,...

    Bede got his information for this period essentially from Gildas, who used a fair bit of hyperbole in his accounts, as did continental writers of the same period, with the barbarian invasions...

    This is a frequently repeated fallacy. If we look at the history of Brittany we find that there was a British influence there long before the Anglo-Saxon conquest. In the turmoil of the barbarian...

    I've heard of one test indicating that, but other (in my view a little more thoughtful and detailed) DNA tests suggest that the vast majority are of pre-Saxon descent.

    As for names, the majority...

    So mostly Nordid and CM, with little Atlantid. What about the prominent and hooked nose look? Is that common in Yorkshire?

    It has already been pointed out by myself and others that when cousin marriage is repeated in a lineage the chance of genetic defects in the offspring becomes much higher.

    Regarding the Irish, and which nationalities look better than which, I would say beauty is to a significant extent in the eye of the beholder. Of course, an unhealthy or genetically abnormal person...

    I never disputed that Germanic languages are part of the Indo-European family. Indeed all IE languages have influence from non-IE languages, it's just a question of how much.

    Well I guess we can only speculate. What's clear is that there is a very strong element in the Germanic languages which cannot be traced to proto-Indo-European, and is quite possibly derived from...

    I know what you mean feisty, although I'd say Americans are great ones for grinning, so many other nationalities would seem quite "smileless" in comparison.

    Writers say all sorts of different things about this. I've read the exact opposite.

    And indeed most of them are probably of relatively recent Irish descent.

    Scotland is a Protestant country (nominally) and most of it has been since the Reformation, just like England.
