I never cease to be amazed at the depth of knowledge shown by our contributors on this site, about a huge range of issues. Thick Rocks! I don't think so. Well done lads, JB where are you?

You read this first:-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bryan_Sykes

Especially this part:-

The contribution of the Celts of continental Europe to the genetic makeup of Britain and Ireland was minimal.

:-D



I didn't want to get into this because i have had many an arguement with people on forums about this, all of who were wrong of course, but i'm sorry Ron i beg to differ.

I remember seeing this programme, very interesting and it lays to rest the fact that the Cornish are Celts which we all knew anyway, through our history, language and culture, but also proves that the Celts did play a major part in Britains history. Not wanting to get into a deep debate about it, but i had to put my point across. The Corps is also known for it's fair contingent of Pasty eaters!! :niceone:

Sorry mate but,that link points to a synopsis of a TV programme,with conclusions yet to be decided. Wherever it refers to 'Celts' you can safely substitute 'Non-Anglo-Saxons'. A bit all encompassing,perhaps?

There was very little,to no,reference of the people of these islands being 'Celts' until about 150 years ago. Not long before the new age 'Druids' came into being. Victorian imagination methinks.

I've been Welsh all my life (so far :-D ) and have never,ever thought of myself as a bloody 'Celt'.

Some more food for thought:-

..though i'm happy to stay with the later,more scientific conclusion I referenced previously.

:-D
