Who are we? The story of the peoples of Britain and Ireland, drawing on new genetic discoveries, language, buildings and landscape.

The diverse peoples of Britain and Ireland are revealed not only by physical characteristics but also through structures and settlements, place names and dialects. Using the latest genetic and archaeological research, the author shows how different peoples traded, settled and conquered, establishing the 'tribal' and regional roots still apparent today. Its vast scope considers the impact of prehistoric peoples and Celtic tribes, Romans and Vikings, Saxons and Normans, Jews and Huguenots, as well as the increasing population movements of the last century.

About the Author:

David Miles is Chief Archaeologist at English Heritage. Previously Director of the Oxford Archaeological Unit, he is a Research Fellow of the Institute of Archaeology, Oxford and a Fellow of Kellogg College, Oxford. He is a member of the Society of Antiquaries. Author of many books and articles on archaeology, he was for 10 years a columnist on The Oxford Mail & Times and broadcasts regularly on radio and TV (The Today Programme, Chronicle, Tomorrow's World).

Review:

A big, eccentric tract written with a Victorian zeal to educate and improve the reader... [a] magisterial work.

[Miles] draws admirably on history, demography, sociology, biology, and even climatology in this wide-ranging cornucopia.

Coming at a time of surely historical levels of immigration, his hugely detailed survey... provides a vital background to any discussion of why Britain is the way it is. It will certainly warm the hearts of increasingly beleaguered multiculturists.
