A short history of england MARY PLATT PAEMELE 2

The remotest fact in the history of England is written in her rocks. Geology tells us of a time when no sea flowed between Dover and Calais, while an unbroken continent extended from the Mediterranean to the Orkneys.

Huge mounds of rough stones called Cromlechs, have yielded up still another secret. Before the coming of the Keltic Aryans, there dwelt there two successive races, whose story is briefly told in a few human fragments found in these “Cromlechs.”

These remains do not bear the royal marks of Aryan origin. The men were small in stature, with inferior skulls; and it is surmised that they belonged to the same mysterious branch of the human family as the Basques and Iberians, whose pres- ence in Southern Europe has never been explained.

When the Aryan came and blotted out these races will perhaps always remain a unanswered queston. But while Greece was clothing herself with a mantle of beauty, which the world for two thousand years has striven in vain to imitate, there was lying off the North and West coasts of the European Continent a group of mist-enshrouded islands of which she had never heard.

Obscured by fogs, and beyond the horizon of Civilization, a branch of the Aryan race known as Britons were there leading lives as primitive as the American Indians, dwelling in huts shaped like beehives, which they covered with branches and plastered with mud. (A SHORT HISTORY OF ENGLAND)

The actual conquest of Britain was not one of Caesar’s achievements. But from the moment when his covetous eagle – eye viewed the chalk-cliffs of Dover from the coast of Northern Gaul, its fate was sealed. The Roman octopus from that moment had fastened its tentacles upon the hapless land and in 45 a.d., (A SHORT HISTORY OF ENGLAND)

under the Emperor Claudius, it became a Roman province. In vain did the Britons struggle for forty years. In vain did the heroic Boadicea (during the reign of Nero, 61 a.d.), like Hermann in Germany and Vercingetorix in France, resist the destruction of her nation by the Eomans.

In vain did this woman herself lead the Britons, in a frenzy of patriotism; and when the inevitable defeat came, and London was lost, with the desperate courage of the bar- barian she destroyed herself rather than witness the humiliation of her race.(A SHORT HISTORY OF ENGLAND)

The stately Westminster and St. Paul’s did not look down upon this heroic daughter of Britain. London at that time was a collection of miserable huts and entrenched cattle-pens, which were in Keltic speech called the ” Fort-on-the-Lake”—or “Llyn- din,” an uncouth name in Latin ears, which gave little promise of the future London, the Komans helping it to its final form by calling it Londinium.
