Its common knowledge to anyone who ever opened a fucking history book. The Celts were basically fucking cavemen. Thatch cottages, wooden walls, iron weapons. Their armies were every male who could hold an axe, and weren't trained
The Romans introduced effective government, stone, steel, plumbing, roads, trained well equipped armies, records and actual writing (as opposed to a few runes here and there). After the Romans left, everything they taught was instantly forgotten, but the Saxons made good use of their buildings and cities
#105 - traelos (18 hours ago) [-]
So by your logic, Spain, France, Britain (which is especially hilarious since the Romans only ever even took England, and not even all of England), half of Germany, Bits of North Africa, and Italy are all Roman, even though the Romans learned their culture from the Greeks?
Alternatively we can not be mentally ill and acknowledge that Britain is Celtic/Nordic and Rome barely fucking touched it.
I mean is this what their teaching in British schools or something? Do they teach you that Russia is Polish? Is Japan Chinese now?
#106 - theshadowed (18 hours ago) [-]
Wait you're not even British? Don't lecture me on my own history son.
Basically, yes. They are. Rome actually captured England, Wales, a vast majority of Ireland and half of Scotland. Roman civilization bought Christianity to head, so effectively shaped the history of Europe. Both the HRE and the Carolingian Empire claimed the title of the Roman Empire, so were obviously fucking inspired by them. Byzantium created the Orthodox church, and controlled Eastern Europe right up until the 1300s, and they were Rome
The Greeks may have inspired Rome, but Rome promptly destroyed the Greeks, and advanced their culture

>Don't lecture me on my history
>Tries to give me a history of Roman influence
Fuck you're uneducated. Or moreso, miseducated, think Texas but in Europe and "guns r bad" instead of "muh 2nd amendment".
To start, Britain is not Roman, Britain is significantly less Roman than any other part of Europe save Scandinavia. You don't even speak a Romance language. Second of all, Rome's been dead for 1500 years, the United Kingdom is about 300 years old. In the 1200 year gap Britain was occupied by the native Celts, the Anglo-Saxons, who remained the predominant culture for about 600 years, as opposed to a 400 year Roman rule, then the "Roman" culture that had just finished being Saxon for much longer than it had even been Roman was conquered by the Normans who brought French culture to England in a big way, and eventually Wales and Ireland as well. Oh and they stuck around as a culture until the UK was made 650 years later.
So basically, the breakdown is
Native Celtic populace = 30,000 years
Roman dominance = 400 years
Anglo-Saxon dominance = 600 years
Norman dominance = 650 years
Modern UK = 300 years
But naturally only the shortest period where you were controlled by an empire that considered you the frontieriest of frontiers counts when determining your heritage.
#170 - theshadowed (8 hours ago) [-]
Again you're fucking retarded.
I never said Rome was the predominant culture, merely the fucking first
And you have no idea what you're talking about
After the Romans left, it wasn't the godmaned Saxons you brainless retard.
First we had the Britons, the Welsh, the Picts, and the Irish
Then the Saxons invaded.
Then the Danes
Then the Normans
Then the French
Then they turned English.
Your timescales are fucking wrong, and you don't even realise how retarded you are. Look how much you are being thumbed. down. The only person to not realise how fucking incorrect your history is, is you
#124 - 2scared2login (17 hours ago) [-]
The UK is a cesspool of a bunch of cultural influences all thrown in together, where your argument is that roman dominance was short there, the lasting effect was long. Britain was conquered by the french, who were more culturally influenced by the romans than native britons anyway, so by secondary inheritance there was roman cultural influence mixed with celtic and the native culture. There is no definitive answer for who the ancestors of the UK were, because it was such a varied mix of western European cultures.
#32 - 2scared2login (23 hours ago) [-]
This one I think i the Celts.
For Nordics it would likely be a black raven on white background to Symbolize the vikings.
Though England's ancestors aren't Celts they are Saxons.
#51 - 2scared2login (21 hours ago) [-]
Considering the rest of the picture relates to England, it would make more sense to have saxon and just keep with England.
1. The Romans didn't take Scotland or N.Ireland
2. Scotland, N.Ireland and Wales aren't neutral enemies with France, they're neutral enemies with England, I'd say they're former Enemies with England, the Romans and the Norse.
3. Only England and N.Ireland have rivalry with Rep. Ireland. Scotland and Wales couldn't care less.
4. Its England that's best friends with the US. If you could even call it that. I'd consider England to be the annoying kid that hangs around thinking its friends with someone, then the other guy takes advantage of it and has it do the shit it doesn't want to.
#54 - ennaburning (21 hours ago) [-]
i'd have to disgree with some of this.
1. The Romans did take part of Scotland, the Antonine Wall is considerably far into Scotland (though I'll give you that that line didn't stay for long)
3. I think you'll find there are plenty of Scots (can't talk about Wales though - I just don't know) who care plenty about about what foes in in the Republic of Ireland
4. Not really, every American I meet is soo happy to meet a Scot - half of them try and tell me how they're actually 1/4569834968th Scottish, so that makes us practically relatives
#115 - aciar (17 hours ago) [-]
The Antonine Wall isn't that far into Scotland, it's at the arse end of Glasgow, I mean, I live right next to it. Also, the army at the wall stood for a tiny amount of time, it's almost laughable that the Romans were pushed all the way back to Hadrian's wall in such a short time. It's sort of like Rome gently dragged it's balls over the Calledone's garden and then got promptly kicked in the hawmaws.
#58 - 2scared2login (21 hours ago) [-]
Antonine Wall is only at the central belt. I wouldn't consider that a significant enough amount to class the Romans as Scotland's father. The Norse are more fatherly, although they only took the islands and coastline of mainland, the majority of settlements were near the coast.
Nice number 2
The people that are against Ireland in Scotland are some Rangers fans. The kind of people that walk down streets celebrating the genocide of Catholics. Everyone else couldn't care less or is a Celtic fan that thinks they're Irish.
I wasn't talking about Scotland and America. I was referring to Westminster submitting to what ever the US says, America is like the girl with the specs in Lilo and Stitch and Westminster is like the annoying kids that always go "Yeahhhh" at the end of every sentence specs says.
#59 - ennaburning (21 hours ago) [-]
Significant amount of the population there though
I said I was going to comment on some of your points, I didn't comment on your point number 2
Aaaand, that's bullshit, there are plenty of people who are non-sectarian who give a shit cos they're decent people.
Ah, but Westminster is not Britain, it is part of the governing system that is Britain but it is not us as a whole, so I object to using that point
