    Hengist was coarser than Horsa and Horsa was certainly coarse ..

    My understanding is that they were invited over by Vortigern, a Celt who was trying to fill the vacuum left by the Romans, with a mission to put down piracy.

    What would be interesting is a mitichondrail analysis on a fairly wide scale which would establish whether H & H & co brought their own women with them or mostly used the local supply. I suspect the latter.

    If we were exclusively Germanic where did the English sense of humour come from?

  8. You got it Seaweed, anyone from Kent should know this tale well, as the Horse is 'allegedly' Horsa's battle emblem. The Scroll bearing 'Invicta' means unconquered, relates to William the Bastard's ambush by Kentishmen and Men of Kent who demanded their Saxon rights of Inheritence, or Williams death. William accepted these terms and Kent was the only county of England retained Saxon law. Horsa and Hengist were granted the Isle of Sheppey by Vortigern for their anti piracy operations and they then decided to conquer the rest of the island. Kents genetic makeup is supposedly Jutish, Essex (EaSt Saxon's), Sussex (South Saxons) East Anglia (Angles), Wessex (West Saxons and so on....
  9. On reading this I contacted my friend, the renowned anthroplogist Dr Professor Heinrich Knackerwurstfinkelfefferappfelstrudeltrommeler von Ulm und Wittelsbach Anhalt Hohenlinden Maybach Sachenhausen, and he said quite categoricaly, Dies ist alles ein total load von Bollucks mein freund, then carried on eating his bacon sarnie.

  11. Unfortunately some of us are.
  12. So, the genes of Germans and Brits are similar and the "experts" reckon it's because of a German invasion in the past?

    How likely is that, really?

    Look at history, it's filled with accounts of Brit armies going on foreign tours over there. Who's to say Tropper & his mates didn't do a bit of impregnating der frauleins in the Dark Ages. After all, it was Dark - nobody could be certain who was doing what to whom.

  13. It cant be true. The germanic idea of fun is to work ours is the noble tradition of getting shit faced.
  14. This is no surprise to me gents, my fathers German and my wife was born in reintel! alles klar?
