German lands after the withdrawal of Roman legions. The Roman Empire
soon split. They drove Celtic people into the mountains of Wales and
Scotland, and fought
with the Danes from the 8th to the 11th centuries. Alfred the Great
wanted to unify Anglo-Saxon kings. He was very well educated (as
well as our Karl IV.), he also started to write Anglo-Saxon chronicle,
the first prosaic piece.

The 11th century was the last successful invasion by French speaking
Normans led by William, Duke of Normandy, who became William the

UK is surrounded by water except for the regions along the Northern
Ireland / Republic of Ireland border. The country is as diverse
as its weather which is due largely to its geography. Scotland is
mostly mountainous in the northern areas and plain in the south
while the Northern England is quite hilly and flat for the rest
of the area and again Wales is almost entirely mountainous except
for the coastline.

The British weather varies by far but only occasionally are there
extremes of heat and cold. It gets a good average rainfall with

and January - the coldest. The coasts are never troubled by
ice. So it's advisable to bring warm clothing and a waterproof jacket
whatever season you're traveling in as there can be quite a difference
in temperature often between Scotland and Southern England.

is made up of one hundred pence. Notes are issued to the value of
£50, £20, £10 and £5.

coins and notes from the mainland, the monetary system is the same.

5p, 2p, and 1p.
UK practices religious freedom without interference from
the state or the community. Though the majority of the population
in Britain does not indulge in regularly religious services, they
have faiths in god.

, Northern Ireland, is the only region where two communities use
religious designations to express unreceptive, political agendas.

and outlook. Maintaining a high standard of living is a top priority.

blocks or concrete-like building materials as wood can rot due to
Clothes reflect the climate, and woolen goods, particularly tweeds,
are famous products.
British cuisines include scrumptiously prepared vegetables and fried
foods. The famous British specialties are roast beef with Yorkshire
pudding (a type of popover baked in meat drippings); shepherd’s
pie, made with minced lamb and mashed potatoes; and scones served
with thick, clotted cream. Other favorite foods include fish and
chips, steak and kidney pie, Cornish pasties, Welsh rarebit, kippers
(salted and smoked herring or salmon), and, in Scotland, haggis
(stuffed sheep’s stomach).

or pub, serves alcoholic beverages and is an important gathering
place, particularly for the working class. Politeness is a trait
of British society, and shouting is regarded as rude.

including football (soccer), rugby, cricket, tennis, polo, horseracing,
