    How Germanic is England?

    I have my family tree done, extensively, and I am mainly English. With a lot of German and Welsh. I know England is a mixed bag with the Norse, Anglo-Saxon, Picts, Irish, Welsh, Normans (which really are norse) etc. So my question is, is how Germanic is being English?

    Germanic enough to earn itself a dedicated regional subsection on board here, if that counts in your book.

    For the topical question, the influence of non-Germanic populations on the nations of the British Isles, including and especially of England, has been discussed in several topics which can be easily found via the search function, on any part that you haven't already answered yourself in your thread-starting post. If you do want to start a discussion on those influences not yet covered in any topic it should ideally be named "Celtic influence in England?" or "Megalithic influence in England?" rather than "How Germanic is England?"

    The purpose of this section is not to question the degree of "Germanic-ness" of the respective nations represented here. Having a similar thread in the Scotland section is a special case rather than a rule, as there has been much intellectual debate on this on-and-off-board and many misconceptions are in the minds of the public who are lead to believe that Scotland were an all-Celtic country. No such question exists with the English (who still relish in playing FC Saxon vs. Norman United) other than with a few crackpot academics with an agenda, so I do not think this special dispensation needs to be extended to the English.

    Thread henceforth closed.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
