Contrary to popular belief, the end of Roman rule in Britain did not see ethnic cleansing and the genocide of the native “Celtic” population by invading Anglo- Saxons.
Instead it saw the end of a period of imperialistic colonial rule and a return to a native tradition where justice and common land rights were maintained by the community for the community. As a result one of the most creative and prosperous societies in Europe was established.
This native tradition was, however, to be fatally undermined in the name of protecting the country from an external terror threat, and was finally destroyed by one of the most oppressive and exploitative societies ever seen – The Normans. This is the story of how and why it happened.
