Anglo-Saxon origins

From West Coast Reactionaries, a piece called On the Anglo-Saxon. This is Part 1, entitled His Origins. A Brief Overview of the Early History of Albion.

I recommend it. It covers the time period up to the tenth century, just before the Norman invasion.

Too many of us, those of English descent, have not had the benefit, as did earlier generations of learning about our ancestral history as part of our normal curriculum in school. Educating ourselves, via good sources, is a necessary pre-requisite to re-discovering, or discovering for the first time, who we are. It’s been said that a people without a knowledge of their own history are not really a people at all, being like amnesiacs, who have lost the memories that constitute their sense of self, and of personal context.
