How The Normans Lost Their Identity Medieval Apocalypse The Black Death 1 day ago   50:05

Timeline - World History Documentaries
The Normans that invaded England in 1066 came from Normandy in Northern France. However, they were originally Vikings from Scandinavia. From the eighth century Vikings terrorized continental European coastlines with raids and plundering. The proto-Normans instead settled their conquests and cultivated land. Over time they assimilated into medieval European society, abandoned paganism, and upheld conventional Christian norms.

Somebody should tell this "historian" (22:50) that there was no such thing as "King of Germany" back then.

The hunky macho Norman knights! Brilliant! Makes me think of "Les No ... les No ... les NoNoNo" Poor old Goudurix! King Stephen however was a very decent sort of person, very kindly and humane, which for those days was really something.

So , thinking of your own national identity, is just xenophobic.

Cool documentary but at some point I got distracted by that haunting celtic melody starting at 23:22 and went off to MuseScore to play with it... But a few notes: Edward the 1st - yes, that's longshanks from Braveheart, he was actually a french-speaking Norman. Macbeth: little is actually known about the historical figure and drinking boiled frog's legs is more likely to summon James I (to appease whom Skakey wrote the unnameable) rather than Mr Brief Candle himself. And finally: so we have a bunch of frenchified Scandinavians to blame for all that hostility that still exists between the English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh?
The French are awesome.

43:28 is the only thing you need to take home from this documentary.

Identity theft, identity oppression are not uncommon in Europe. The Scythians were almost wiped from the history books yet their culture was foundational.
