England used to be part of the Faroe Islands, they split away and after a number of wars they decided to have a coin-toss about which of the islands should be called the Faroe Islands.

They won, after some disagreement about the coin-toss, which was a bit hampered in those days by the fact that they couldn't make level coins - that was an institution brought in by the Romans.

We had to call ourselves Avalon or Albion or Landy McLandface until they took the vote off serfs because they were taking the pi ss.

DNA-wise. Most of us originate from Northern Spain.

DNA testing shows that around 16,000 years ago, our ancestors arrived from Northern Spain and were likely to have plenty in common with the Basques.

England was almost completely uninhabited at that point, after a galacial period.

French, Scandinavian and German invasions acount for the rest of our DNA, but not as big a proportion.

Back to the original name for England. We have to go back to the ancient supercontinents. England began it's journey (as far as we can trace), south of current day Australia.

The reason why there are ancient volcanoes in Charnwood; is because this land once passed over a volcanic zone near the equator.

Go back far enough and England and Englishness are very different things to what some of us think today.

Surely it wasn't England until the "English" arrived?

What became England in ancient times, is still what England is. Hence the original name for England, is far more ancient than the modern name for England. Pretty straightforward.

Unless we accept that England and being English is a modern construct; a case of political expediency to cajole and control the masses.

I don't like that definition though. Because I'm proud to be from England and English; but also accept that the history of this land mass is very ancient and its peoples of diverse origin.

The true "English" are untraceable. They were joined thousands of years ago by the northern Spanish; who themselves had travelled from distant lands.

I've always suspected that I might be a bit of a Basque-ket case!

I paid for my DNA test to be done and l came back with no English blood in me at all. 38% Swedish and 62% Welsh and South West Ireland.

Still support England but might have to change a bit !

That Welsh and South West Ireland blood, will have a share of the Basque blood that is so prominent in England. So you're OK. Just don't start wearing basques.
