and why, kyle? lol

England was inhabited by the Celts, who were then pushed out and annexed by the Romans. Following teh pullout of Rome, she fell into a backward and fragmented area pillaged by vikings until the Danes installed a cruel, but efficient government more in line with modern day Europe. London was not always the capital, however.

You forgot the Saxon period. And I belive he was looking for specifics. In which case this isn't the place to ask, go to the library, they actually know books.

The Romans pushed out both Celts and Trojans. There is undoubtable evidence that trojan refugees fled to Britain and established at least 2 settlements. one where London stands and one near Taunton. Archeologists found that the style of the remains found are consistint with those found in the areas surrounding the remains of ancient Troy. they are found to be slighty younger than those found in Turkey.

Locke, as archeologists have never actually located and uncovered the ancient city of Troy, that's quite an accomplishment for them to match anything to the architecture of a ruined city they never found.

Yes, they did find the city. In 1870.

Gah! sorry...another question.....Can you guys help me with Henry (Hal) Bolinbroke? He was the son of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster. He took the throne after Richard II was forced to abdicate by the peoples of London. There was dispute over the throne by Henry Percy. What happened? was there a civil war?........and Robert De Vere was supposedly made king of Ireland during the same time period by Richard II is that true?
