British ǀ Northern European
The English and Welsh are also known as British people (also referred to as the British, Britons, or informally as Brits or Britishers) and are citizens or subjects of the United Kingdom, Crown Dependencies, British overseas territories, and their descendants.
England/ Wales are both part on the island of Great Britain and belong to the United Kingdom. Wales occupies the western part of the island. Both England and Wales were home to the ancient Celtic Britons as early as the Iron Age and have a much-studied “bedrock” genetics before the Celtic migrations. After the Celts, the island was invaded and occupied in succession by Romans, Angles, Saxons, Jutes, Danes, Norse, Normans and others.
The English identity dates back to the early medieval times when they were known as Angelcynn (an Old English term). Today, the English language is the most widely learned second language in the world.
