Not Quite a Ceilidh 2017

EMMA CNUTCelebrating the Royal Wedding of the Millenniun – 1017

The marriage of King Canute to Queen Emma was the most significant (and most forgotten) event of English history. 

A Danish King and a Norman Queen created Britain as a one nation state and led to the union of England, Denmark and Norway. A sort of alternative European Union which we will refer to as the DNA union – the union of the Danish, Norwegian and Anglo-Saxon peoples.  If you call yourself British – what’s your DNA?
