apperantely the welsh ruled great britain and were pushed to the north and west by invading german/french mix . i say welsh but celt would be more appropiate . all the celtic nations have theyre own lanuages that have close similarities.what are your thoughts

William Wallace was reputed to be of Welsh stock....theres still evidence of Welsh influences in Scottish culture....such as the Bhoy's and the phrase "I'm going for a leek" came from a saying when everyone ate them but could only get them from the market. Other more sinister Welsh practices involving sheep seem to be more prevelent in the Scotish borders and the North of England.....although there is a tribe of SS's in Aberdeen ;)

Yes, it's true. Modern Welsh is what's left of the ancient Brythonic language that was spoken all over Great Britain. Outside of Wales, the last remaining pockets of it existed in Merseyside, Cornwall and the north east of Scotland.

Ever wondered about the name Aberdeen? Aber is a Welsh word. ;)

:no:

Oliver Cromwell was the leader of the Parliamentarians in the English Civil war.

I think you may be referring to Edward Longshanks. :hmm:

If so, yes, he did conquer Wales, with an army half of which was made up up Welshmen who didn't like the current ruler, Llywelyn ap Gruffydd.

Over 9000 of his 15,500 men were Welsh.

His campaigns against the Welsh almost broke him, and it was this which ultimately led to his failure to truly conquer our friends in the north. (Matter of debate, especially if Foxgun Tom reads this..! :laugh:)
