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.

[Miles] draws admirably on history, demography, sociology, biology, and even climatology in this wide-ranging cornucopia. * THE TIMES (2/9/06) * 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. * SUNDAY TIMES (3/9/06) * A big, eccentric tract written with a Victorian zeal to educate and improve the reader... [a] magisterial work. * TELEGRAPH (26/8/06) *
