Actually they are only partly incorrect, we know from broad genetic research that most Saxon's and Angles did not bring there woman folk but were
only too eager to take the pretty native lady's (and if you read some of the Roman reports many of the British lady's were very pretty with red and
auburn hair as well as Golden (which I would interpret as a reddish or strawberry blonde), of course they British Celt's were actually a widely
travelled people and as Britain was the source of most Tin in the classical world the likely had trade with many nation's including the Pre Saxon (pre
hunnic) Germanic tribe's and definitely the north African Carthaginian traders.
The English is a broad term to name those whom have Saxon Ancestry, The first Saxon's according to welsh legend were two mercenary warrior's and
there men called Hengist (the Stallion) and Horsa (the Horse), there name's give away the fact these warlords were likey Hun rather than Saxon by
ancestry or at least descended from Hun's on there paternal side.
According to the welsh legend a British king called Vortigan (Possibly a tribal chieftain of one of the British tribes whom had been romanized for
nearly 400 years at this point) just after the Roman's had withdrawn had hired these men in order to defeat his rival's and after they had done so he
tried to renege on his bargain with them so they simply took his land and so began the Saxon invasion's.
The Name English comes from Angles and Saxon's of AngleSaxon/Anglo Saxon and remains in Scotland in there term for the English the Sassanax, England
was not however made up of just the Saxons, there British Slave's and wives but also of the Dane's (northern England) and the Viking's whom had
kingdom's here which came and went as wars swept the land.
Today the English would be speaking a language more akin to Danish, Dutch or German but in 1066 we were invaded by the Normon's across the wale road
(English channel) whom conquered Middle Earth (the Saxon name for England) and raped the woman whom in a maternal line were descended from the woman
the Saxon's had raped.
So on your maternal side if you are English you may have actually ancestry dating back over 2 to 4 thousand years if not longer but on your maternal
side you will likely have ancestry dating back to between 1 to 2 thousand years, if you are welsh you have a much higher chance of actual british male
ancestry dating back to the Roman and earlier periods and if you are a scot you have about a 1 in 4 chance of having pictish male ancestry with the
pict's being probably the oldest (the Real) British tribe, guess what they were a sallow skinned people according to many ancient account's.
So the history curriculum has it at least partially right but is not actually correct unless we are speaking about the Pleistocene hunter gatherers
and we really do not know what race they were though current thinking is that they were probably black but that is back before the last ice age.
