If you didn't study the history of England in school, what you know may be a mishmash of stories instead of a comprehensible timeline. The people of England are descended from the original Celts and an array of invaders who came in waves over the centuries, plus the more recent influx of people from various parts of the British Empire. Suibhne puts those events in order for us, but stops short of the Norman conquest. We can assume that there will be a part two. Check out Suibhne's animated histories of other parts of the world, too. The actual video is only about four minutes long, after a minute-long intro and before an ad at the end. -via Laughing Squid
