    I suppose the original English people would technically be Celtic Britons.

    The Anglo-Saxons were like the ruling caste at the time of the Norman invasion.

    What actually happened during the Norman conquest? I have this idea that they killed all the Anglo-Saxon rulers and raped all the women.

    I don't know if it was all that dramatic, but this happened.

    That's scary to think about. I wonder if they would have attempted to conquer Ireland.

    We'd all be calling castles "slots", saying "kingly" instead of royal, and "sheenful" instead of beautiful.

    As well as probably calling beef "rothermeat".
