    I think that as well. The English are more mellow than the Germans IMO. England came to be named after the Angles not the Saxons after all, otherwise we would live in Saxland and speak Saxish.

    After the Romans left, Germanic tribes Angles, Saxons,and Jutes came from across from Denmark to Britain. After them came the Viking Danes who wanted to take part in the fun. Then in 1066 the Germanic Normans came over to take over. I'd say the British have a lot of Germanic blood flowing through them.

    Evidence of 50 to 100% replacement of the male population by germanic invaders in sampled areas:

    Hopfully further studies will finally help to dispell the current trendy liberal myth that the Angle/Saxon/Jute/Frisian invasion was only cultural.

    Yes, the genetic tests seem to prove an extensive replacement of British/Celtic people with Germanic people. The complete lack of Celtic place names in Engand and Celtic words in English also strongly support a complete invasion.

    The Norman Conquest, meanwhile, shows the characteristics of a limited aristocratic takeover: there was some Latinization of English, but English itself never ceased to be spoken, nor were any English place names changed. If the English invasion was the same in nature as the Norman invasion, then wouldn't the culture of England still be predominantly Celtic?

    DNA signature of English is identical to Danes

    Wasn't there a genetic study of the degree of Norse descent among the English that showed the DNA signature carried in the male Y-chromosone is identical to that of the Danes while a different DNA signature identical to the Norwegians kept recurring among some English people in northern and eastern England and in parts of Scotland? I think there was. There was a documentary series done on it, IIRC.

    European settlers who bravely traversed the Atlantic to construct America almost completely displaced the native population and there are still millions of Europeans left in Europe - why, in regards to England, is displacement theory so unbelievable?

    There are a lot of Britons living in England - Welsh/Irish/ Scottish/Catholics. The size of the English economy compared to the others is enormous, they are economic migrants. Some of those Catholic Britons will take germanic blondes as trophy wives, but the marriages are usually rocky because of the incompatibilties. Non blonde Germanic women don't have that problem nearly as much of being chased by scores of incompatible men.

    From the genetic and DNA info that I have got the English are genetically closer to Scandinavian Germanics than continental Germanics although they tend to share more continental DNA than Celtic, so I would say they are very Germanic, closer to Scandinavians, this does not just include the English but also the Scots in Southern Scotland and the Northern Islands that were occupied by Germanic invaders as well.

    Well, Great Britain belongs firmly in the Beer Belt of Europe, unlike the French who along with their fellow Romance peoples belong in the Wine Belt and also unlike most (northern) Scandinavians who belong in the middle ground between Beer Belt and Vodka Belt(which also includes schnaps and other spirits).

    If choice of alcoholic beverage is taken as a signifier of cultural affiliation( and I believe it should) then the British show clear relation to the Saxons, Danes and Dutch, and less clear relations with France plus Normandy or any Celtic relationship.
