History really confuses me watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have a great interest in the subject but it confuses me.

    Generally, there are three areas that irritate me.

    * Ethnicity
    * Politics
    * Geography

    Say England for example, when we speak of the history of England, are we speaking of government, ethnicity or geography? What constitutes English ethnicity? Today, we would probably be mostly Saxon relatives, but parts of modern day England were never part of the Saxons, and vice versa, some Saxon kingdoms had parts of Scotland, they ruled over Pict (not Scots?)

    Does it even make sense to speak of national history?
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
