Do they reenact the battle of Hastings in the UK? I know they have places to take a look at Saxon culture. And like over here we do Revolutionary and Civil War reenactments.
Possibly, that’s all down south and is Saxon culture.I live in an Angle area, big difference
It wasn't until around 1914 that the English stopped referring to themselves as Saxons. I wonder what happened to change that.
@purplepoppy hmmm, yeah good point…
i dont know enough about them. Were they not cousin tribes?
The preference for the term "English" has become stronger after WW2 due to the ethnic and sociological makeup changing. Prior to that "Anglo-Saxon" was synonymous with "English". Probably had something to do with the Nazi regime as well appropriating a lot of Saxon terminologies and symbology. Even a lot of historical groups with the same "Anglo-Saxon" in it changed their names to a more "politically correct" one which is ridiculous because it's history.
I think the furthest back my documents go is the mid 1800's. I'm thankful to have actual letters, photos, portraits, and heirlooms in my possession.
Essential to keep those safe. Adds flesh to the bare bones of a tree.

thats not true at all. We're talking about ancient tribal roots and in general tribes all over the world, while unique exhibited very similar patterns in development. If we stretch out thousands of years and used DNA testing you could find all that out and learn about them.
Mine are the Ligures, Insubres, and Ebdani! :D
