1066 and all that!
British history and the population has been defined by invasion and conquest.
The invaders, including Saxons, Jutes, Vikings, Romans and Normans, has influenced everything from towns to architecture.
Britain became an empire, and that brought back more people and words from those countries, becoming part of the English language. The very food now enjoyed across Britain is not a new phenomenon. The British Empire traded across the world, bringing back foods enjoyed by the population.
This has created a country full of places to visit and a history to be discovered in Roland’s Travels, my YouTube Channel. There is so much to discover together, and I will be looking at places where there is Norman, Roman, and Saxon history this year, so please stay tuned. There will also be some industrial heritage to visit if plans work out.
Do you have any favourite part of British history that you would like me to explore in my travels? Please leave a comment to let me know.
