How % British Are You?
Great Britain was populated by ancestors to modern humans 800,000 years ago. Other hominids also migrated to Britain from other lands. Neanderthals were the dominant humanoid species until 40,000 years ago. People were largely tribal until the arrival of the Romans in 50 B.C. Independent British Royal rule finally took hold in the 15th century. British power grew as they conquered lands and peoples overseas, eventually controlling 1/4 of the world!
