Much of Wales' diverse landscape is mountainous, particularly in the north and central regions. The mountains were shaped during the last ice age, the Devensian glaciation.

The highest outside the s is Aran Fawddwy , at metres 2, feet , in the south of Snowdonia. The highest point being Pumlumon at metres 2, feet. Wales has three national parks: Snowdonia, Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire Coast.

Forty two percent of the coastline of south and west Wales is designated as Heritage Coast , with 13 specific designated strips of coastline maintained by Natural Resources Wales successor body to the Countryside Council for Wales.

On the night of 25 October , over ships were destroyed off the coast of Wales when a hurricane blew in from the Atlantic. The first border between Wales and England was zonal, apart from around the River Wye, which was the first accepted boundary.

The Seven Wonders of Wales is a list in doggerel verse of seven geographic and cultural landmarks in Wales probably composed in the late 18th century under the influence of tourism from England.

Snowdon the highest mountain , the Gresford bells the peal of bells in the medieval church of All Saints at Gresford , the Llangollen bridge built in over the River Dee , St Winefride's Well a pilgrimage site at Holywell in Flintshire , the Wrexham Wrecsam steeple 16th-century tower of St Giles' Church, Wrexham , the Overton yew trees ancient yew trees in the churchyard of St.

The earliest geological period of the Paleozoic era, the Cambrian , takes its name from the Cambrian Mountains , where geologists first identified Cambrian remnants.

The older rocks underlying the Cambrian rocks in Wales lacked fossils which could be used to differentiate their various groups and were referred to as Pre-cambrian.

In the midth century, two prominent geologists, Roderick Murchison and Adam Sedgwick who first proposed the name of the Cambrian period , independently used their studies of the geology of Wales to establish certain principles of stratigraphy and palaeontology.

The next two periods of the Paleozoic era, the Ordovician and Silurian , were named after ancient Celtic tribes from this area based on Murchison's and Sedgwick's work.

Wales lies within the north temperate zone. It has a changeable, maritime climate and is one of the wettest countries in Europe. Average annual coastal temperatures reach It becomes cooler at higher altitudes; annual temperatures decrease on average approximately 0.

The ocean current, bringing warmer water to northerly latitudes, has a similar effect on most of north-west Europe. As well as its influence on Wales' coastal areas, air warmed by the Gulf Stream blows further inland with the prevailing winds.

At low elevations, summers tend to be warm and sunny. Winters tend to be fairly wet, but rainfall is rarely excessive and the temperature usually stays above freezing.

The sunniest time of year tends to be between May and August. The south-western coast is the sunniest part of Wales, averaging over hours of sunshine annually.

Wales' sunniest town is Tenby , Pembrokeshire. The dullest time of year tends to be between November and January. The least sunny areas are the mountains, some parts of which average less than hours of sunshine annually.

Coastal areas are the windiest, gales occur most often during winter, on average between 15 and 30 days each year, depending on location. Inland, gales average fewer than six days annually.

Rainfall patterns show significant variation. Snow falls several times each winter in inland areas but is relatively uncommon around the coast.

Wales' wildlife is typical of Britain with several distinctions. Because of its long coastline, Wales hosts a variety of seabirds.

The coasts and surrounding islands are home to colonies of gannets , Manx shearwater , puffins , kittiwakes , shags and razorbills.

The larger Welsh mammals died out during the Norman period, including the brown bear, wolf and the wildcat. The pine marten which has had the occasional sighting, has not been officially recorded since the s.

The polecat was nearly driven to extinction in Britain, but hung on in Wales and is now rapidly spreading. Feral goats can be found in Snowdonia.

The waters of south-west Wales of Gower, Pembrokeshire and Cardigan Bay attract marine animals, including basking sharks , Atlantic grey seals , leatherback turtles, dolphins , porpoises , jellyfish, crabs and lobsters.

Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion, in particular, are recognised as an area of international importance for bottlenose dolphins , and New Quay has the only summer residence of bottlenose dolphins in the whole of the UK.

River fish of note include char , eel , salmon , shad , sparling and Arctic char , whilst the Gwyniad is unique to Wales, found only in Bala Lake.

The north facing high grounds of Snowdonia support a relict pre-glacial flora including the iconic Snowdon lily — Gagea serotina — and other alpine species such as Saxifraga cespitosa , Saxifraga oppositifolia and Silene acaulis.

Wales also hosts a number of plant species not found elsewhere in the UK including the spotted rock-rose Tuberaria guttata on Anglesey and Draba aizoides [] on the Gower.

Over the last years, Wales has been transformed first from a predominantly agricultural country to an industrial, and now a post-industrial economy.

From the middle of the 19th century until the post-war era, the mining and export of coal was a dominant industry.

At its peak of production in , nearly , men and women were employed in the south Wales coalfield , mining 56 million tons of coal.

In the late s and early s, Wales was successful in attracting an above average share of foreign direct investment in the UK.

The Welsh landscape protected by three national parks and 45 Blue Flag beaches , as well as the unique culture of Wales, attract large numbers of tourists, who play an especially vital role in the economy of rural areas.

The pound sterling is the currency used in Wales. Numerous Welsh banks issued their own banknotes in the 19th century.

The last bank to do so closed in ; since then, although banks in Scotland and Northern Ireland continue to have the right to issue banknotes in their own countries, the Bank of England has a monopoly on the issue of banknotes in Wales.

However, Wales has not been represented on any coin minted from The A55 expressway has a similar role along the north Wales coast, connecting Holyhead and Bangor with Wrexham and Flintshire.

It also links to north-west England, principally Chester. The main north-south Wales link is the A , which runs from Cardiff to Llandudno.

Cardiff Airport is the only large and international airport in Wales. Other internal flights operate to northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The Welsh Government manages those parts of the British railway network within Wales, through the Transport for Wales Rail train operating company.

Cardiff Central is Wales' busiest railway station, with over four times as much passenger traffic as any other station in Wales. Beeching cuts in the s mean that most of the remaining network is geared toward east-west travel connecting with the Irish Sea ports for ferries to Ireland.

All trains in Wales are diesel-powered since no lines have been electrified. Wales has four commercial ferry ports. Regular ferry services to Ireland operate from Holyhead , Pembroke and Fishguard.

The Swansea to Cork service, cancelled in , was reinstated in March , but has been withdrawn again in A distinct education system has developed in Wales.

The first grammar schools were established in Welsh towns such as Ruthin , Brecon and Cowbridge.

At the end of the day, the wearer of the "not" would be beaten. The University College of Wales opened in Aberystwyth in Cardiff and Bangor followed, and the three colleges came together in to form the University of Wales.

The Welsh Department for the Board of Education followed in , which gave Wales its first significant educational devolution. In —, there were 1, maintained schools in Wales.

Historically, Wales was served by smaller 'cottage' hospitals, built as voluntary institutions. A History of Wales. The population of Wales doubled from , in to 1,, in and had reached 2,, by Most of the increase came in the coal mining districts, especially Glamorganshire , which grew from 71, in to , in and 1,, in However, there was also large-scale migration into Wales during the Industrial Revolution.

The English were the most numerous group, but there were also considerable numbers of Irish and smaller numbers of other ethnic groups, [] [] including Italians , who migrated to South Wales.

Many of these self-identify as Welsh. The census showed Wales' population to be 3,,, the highest in its history.

The UK census was criticised in Wales for not offering 'Welsh' as an option to describe respondents' national identity. Respondents were instructed to "tick all that apply" from a list of options that included Welsh.

The outcome was that No Welsh national identity was indicated by The proportion giving their sole national identity as British was No British national identity was indicated by The census showed Wales to be less ethnically diverse than any region of England: The lowest proportion of White British The proportion born in Wales varies across the country, with the highest percentages in the south Wales valleys and the lowest in mid Wales and parts of the north-east.

The total fertility rate TFR in Wales was 1. In his work Archaeologia Britannica Edward Lhuyd , keeper of the Ashmolean Museum , noted the similarity between the two Celtic language families: He argued that the Brythonic languages originated in Gaul France and that the Goidelic languages originated in the Iberian Peninsula.

Lhuyd concluded that as the languages had been of Celtic origin, the people who spoke those languages were Celts.

According to a more recent hypothesis, also widely embraced today, Goidelic and Brythonic languages, collectively known as Insular Celtic languages , evolved together for some time separately from Continental Celtic languages such as Gaulish and Celtiberian.

From the 18th century, the peoples of Brittany , Cornwall , Ireland , Isle of Man , Scotland and Wales were known increasingly as Celts, and they are regarded as the modern Celtic nations today.

The Bible translations into Welsh helped to maintain the use of Welsh in daily life. The Welsh Language Act and the Government of Wales Act provide that the English and Welsh languages be treated on a basis of equality, and both are used as working languages within the National Assembly.

Code-switching is common in all parts of Wales and is known by various terms, though none is recognised by professional linguists.

It has been influenced significantly by Welsh grammar and includes words derived from Welsh. According to John Davies, Wenglish has "been the object of far greater prejudice than anything suffered by Welsh".

The Census showed , people, Road signs in Wales are generally in both English and Welsh; where place names differ in the two languages, both versions are used e.

Under new regulations that came into force in , the Welsh Language Commissioner requires local authorities and Welsh Government to ensure that all new or renewed road signs that use both languages to feature the Welsh language first.

During the 20th century, a number of small communities of speakers of languages other than Welsh or English, such as Bengali or Cantonese , established themselves in Wales as a result of immigration.

The largest religion in Wales is Christianity, with The Presbyterian Church of Wales was born out of the Welsh Methodist revival in the 18th century and seceded from the Church of England in Islam is the largest non-Christian religion in Wales, with 24, 0.

There are also communities of Hindus and Sikhs , mainly in the south Wales cities of Newport, Cardiff and Swansea, while the largest concentration of Buddhists is in the western rural county of Ceredigion.

The remnants of the native Celtic mythology of the pre-Christian Britons was passed down orally, in much-altered form, by the cynfeirdd the early poets.

Wales can claim one of the oldest unbroken literary traditions in Europe. The Poets of the Princes were professional poets who composed eulogies and elegies to the Welsh princes while the Poets of the Gentry were a school of poets that favoured the cywydd metre.

Despite the extinction of the professional poet, the integration of the native elite into a wider cultural world did bring other literary benefits.

Major developments in 19th-century Welsh literature include Lady Charlotte Guest's translation of the Mabinogion, one of the most important medieval Welsh prose tales of Celtic mythology, into English.

The 20th century experienced an important shift away from the stilted and long-winded Victorian Welsh prose, with Thomas Gwynn Jones leading the way with his work Ymadawiad Arthur.

Though the inter-war period is dominated by Saunders Lewis , for his political and reactionary views as much as his plays, poetry and criticism.

Thomas was one of the most notable and popular Welsh writers of the 20th century and one of the most innovative poets of his time. The attitude of the post-war generation of Welsh writers in English towards Wales differs from the previous generation, in that they were more sympathetic to Welsh nationalism and to the Welsh language.

The change can be linked to the nationalist fervour generated by Saunders Lewis and the burning of the Bombing School on the Lleyn Peninsula in , along with a sense of crisis generated by World War II.

Thomas — was the most important figure throughout the second half of the twentieth century. While he "did not learn the Welsh language until he was 30 and wrote all his poems in English", [] he wanted the Welsh language to be made the first language of Wales, and the official policy of bilingualism abolished.

The major novelist in the second half of the twentieth century was Emyr Humphreys Born near Abergavenny , Williams continued the earlier tradition of writing from a left-wing perspective on the Welsh industrial scene in his trilogy " Border Country " , "Second Generation" , and "The Fight for Manod" He also enjoyed a reputation as a cultural historian.

The National Museum [of] Wales was founded by royal charter in and is now a Welsh Government sponsored body. In April , the attractions attached to the National Museum were granted free entry by the Assembly, and this action saw the visitor numbers to the sites increase during — by Aberystwyth is home to the National Library of Wales , which houses some of the most important collections in Wales, including the Sir John Williams Collection and the Shirburn Castle collection.

Many works of Celtic art have been found in Wales. A number of illuminated manuscripts from Wales survive, of which the 8th-century Hereford Gospels and Lichfield Gospels are the most notable.

The 11th-century Ricemarch Psalter now in Dublin is certainly Welsh, made in St David's , and shows a late Insular style with unusual Viking influence.

The best of the few Welsh artists of the 16th—18th centuries tended to leave the country to work, many of them moving to London or Italy.

Richard Wilson —82 is arguably the first major British landscapist. Although more notable for his Italian scenes, he painted several Welsh scenes on visits from London.

By the late 18th century, the popularity of landscape art grew and clients were found in the larger Welsh towns, allowing more Welsh artists to stay in their homeland.

Artists from outside Wales were also drawn to paint Welsh scenery, at first because of the Celtic Revival.

Then in the early 19th century, the Napoleonic Wars preventing the Grand Tour to continental Europe, travel through Wales came to be considered more accessible.

An Act of Parliament in provided for the establishment of a number of art schools throughout the United Kingdom and the Cardiff School of Art opened in Graduates still very often had to leave Wales to work, but Betws-y-Coed became a popular centre for artists and its artists' colony helped form the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art in Christopher Williams , whose subjects were mostly resolutely Welsh, was also based in London.

Stephens and Andrew Vicari had very successful careers as portraitists based respectively in the United States and France. Many Welsh painters gravitated towards the art capitals of Europe.

However, the landscapists Sir Kyffin Williams and Peter Prendergast lived in Wales for most of their lives, while remaining in touch with the wider art world.

Ceri Richards was very engaged in the Welsh art scene as a teacher in Cardiff and even after moving to London.

He was a figurative painter in international styles including Surrealism. The Kardomah Gang was an intellectual circle centred on the poet Dylan Thomas and poet and artist Vernon Watkins in Swansea, which also included the painter Alfred Janes.

South Wales had several notable potteries , one of the first important sites being the Ewenny Pottery in Bridgend , which began producing earthenware in the 17th century.

It was officially recognised as the Welsh national flag in George which then represented the Kingdom of England and Wales. The daffodil and the leek are both symbols of Wales.

The origins of the leek can be traced to the 16th century, while the daffodil became popular in the 19th century, encouraged by David Lloyd George.

The red kite is a national symbol of Welsh wildlife. The Prince of Wales' heraldic badge is also sometimes used to symbolise Wales.

The badge, known as the Prince of Wales's feathers , consists of three white feathers emerging from a gold coronet. A ribbon below the coronet bears the German motto Ich dien I serve.

Several Welsh representative teams, including the Welsh rugby union, and Welsh regiments in the British Army the Royal Welsh , for example use the badge or a stylised version of it.

The Prince of Wales has claimed that only he has the authority to use the symbol. Land of My Fathers is the National Anthem of Wales, and is played at events such as football or rugby matches involving the Wales national team as well as the opening of the Welsh Assembly and other official occasions.

More than 50 national governing bodies regulate and organise their sports in Wales. Although football has traditionally been the more popular sport in north Wales , rugby union is seen as a symbol of Welsh identity and an expression of national consciousness.

The five professional sides that replaced the traditional club sides in major competitions in were replaced in by the four regions: Cardiff Blues , Dragons , Ospreys and Scarlets.

Wales has had its own football league , the Welsh Premier League , since Rugby league in Wales dates back to The Crusaders competed in the top level Super League competition from — A professional Welsh League existed from to Wales has produced several world-class participants of individual sports including snooker players Ray Reardon , Terry Griffiths , Mark Williams and Matthew Stevens.

Wales also has a tradition of producing world-class boxers. Wales has hosted several international sporting events. All Welsh television broadcasts are digital.

The last of the analogue transmitters ceased broadcasts in April , and Wales became the UK's first digital nation. BBC Cymru Wales is the national broadcaster.

Its output was mostly Welsh-language at peak hours but shared English-language content with Channel 4 at other times. Since the digital switchover in April , the channel has broadcast exclusively in Welsh.

Their remaining output is commissioned from ITV and independent producers. Several regional radio stations broadcast in Welsh: Most of the newspapers sold and read in Wales are national newspapers available throughout Britain, unlike in Scotland where many newspapers have rebranded into Scottish-based titles.

The Western Mail is Wales' only national daily newspaper. Magazines published in Welsh and English cover general and specialist subjects.

Cambria , a Welsh affairs magazine published bi-monthly in English, has subscribers in over 30 countries. Although both beef and dairy cattle are raised widely, especially in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, Wales is more well known for its sheep farming and thus lamb is the meat traditionally associated with Welsh cooking.

Traditional dishes include laverbread made from laver Porphyra umbilicalis , an edible seaweed ; bara brith fruit bread ; cawl a lamb stew ; cawl cennin leek soup ; Welsh cakes ; and Welsh lamb.

Cockles are sometimes served as a traditional breakfast with bacon and laverbread. Although Wales has its own traditional food and has absorbed much of the cuisine of England, Welsh diets now owe more to the countries of India , China and the United States.

Wales is often referred to as "the land of song", [] and is notable for its harpists, male choirs, and solo artists.

The principal Welsh festival of music and poetry is the annual National Eisteddfod. The Llangollen International Eisteddfod echoes the National Eisteddfod but provides an opportunity for the singers and musicians of the world to perform.

Traditional music and dance in Wales is supported by a myriad of societies. The Welsh Folk Song Society has published a number of collections of songs and tunes.

Traditional instruments of Wales include telyn deires triple harp , fiddle, crwth , pibgorn hornpipe and other instruments. Popular bands that emerged from Wales include the Beatles-nurtured power pop group Badfinger in the s, Man and Budgie in the s and the Alarm in the s.

Many groups emerged during the s, led by Manic Street Preachers , followed by the likes of the Stereophonics and Feeder ; notable during this period were Catatonia , Super Furry Animals , and Gorky's Zygotic Mynci who gained popular success as dual-language artists.

Male voice choirs emerged in the 19th century and continue today. Originally these choirs where formed as the tenor and bass sections of chapel choirs, and embraced the popular secular hymns of the day.

Along with the playhouses, there existed mobile companies at visiting fairs, though from most of these travelling theatres settled, purchasing theatres to perform in.

Drama in the early 20th century thrived, but the country failed to produce a Welsh National Theatre company. After the Second World War the substantial number of amateur companies that had existed before the outbreak of hostilities reduced by two-thirds.

Other Welsh actors to have crossed the Atlantic more recently include: Dancing is a popular pastime in Wales; traditional dances include folk dancing and clog dancing.

The first mention of dancing in Wales is in a 12th-century account by Giraldus Cambrensis , but by the 19th century traditional dance had all but died out; this is attributed to the influence of Nonconformists and their belief that any physical diversion was worthless and satanic, especially mixed dancing.

The Welsh Folk Dance Society was founded in ; [] it supports a network of national amateur dance teams and publishes support material.

Contemporary dance grew out of Cardiff in the s; one of the earliest companies, Moving Being, came from London to Cardiff in As well as celebrating many of the traditional religious festivals of Great Britain, such as Easter and Christmas, Wales has its own unique celebratory days.

An early festivity was Mabsant when local parishes would celebrate the patron saint of their local church. Commemorating the patron saint of friendship and love, Dydd Santes Dwynwen 's popularity has been increasing recently.

It is celebrated on 25 January in a similar way to St Valentine's Day: Calan Gaeaf , associated with the supernatural and the dead, is observed on 1 November All Saints Day.

It has largely been replaced by Hallowe'en. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the country. For other uses, see Wales disambiguation.

Sovereign state Legal jurisdiction. Wales was an area of Brittannia. The native peoples of Brittannia all spoke a variety of what we now call Welsh.

When the Angles, Saxons and Jutes started invading they did not massacre the British inhabitants nor did they send them all into exile.

Instead they gradually made themselves overlords of the British people over most of east and south Britain and brought their families in and gradually intermarried.

At some point some of these people started to call their country Anglelond from which we get England. The Britons remained in charge of their own people in the west for some time and they called themselves Cymru.

The English however called them the foreigners which in Saxon was Walesla so that the original people now live in a country called the foreigners.

Over time the Anglo Saxon overlords took on more and more of the country so that by the 10th century most of what is now England was England and Wales had its current restrictions.

I believe one of the last British Kingdoms to be absorbed was Elmet, based around Leeds area. Although the term Anglelond was known the Anglo-Saxons at the time were not a united country, instead they had seven countries which gradually United to become one over a few hundred years.

Sometime in the 10th century a tribe from Ireland called Scotia invaded western Scotland. They gradually took over the country and gave it the name Scotland while about the same time the name Hibernian migrated from Scotland to Ireland.

By the time of the Norman Conquest we have the two main islands split between four countries - England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland.

They were independent of each other although not always United in themselves as different tribes or clans still often fought.

The islands are known as the British Islands or the British Isles and as islands and isles are synonyms the two are the same.

There are a lot of islands around the coasts some of them are integral parts of one or the others but some such as Isle of Man and the Channel Isles are crown dependencies and have their own laws hence they are tax havens.

The islands are part of the British Isles but not necessarily part of the United Kingdom. At one time England was split in two with the north and east ruled by Vikings but the country reunited again until with two Viking invasions.

One in the north led by Harold Hardrada and Tostig, brother of King Harold Godwinson was defeated at Stamford Bridge but this meant that the Englush army was both tired and miles away when the Normans attacked the south.

The Normans are so called because they too were Vikings or Norsemen being only two generations from the Viking invaders of what became Normandy.

Since the Norman Conquest the rulers of England fought with the rulers of the other countries, first of all conquering Wales and making it part of the Kingdom.

Scotland and England tussled for hundreds of years finally joining after the Scottish Kings inherited the throne of England.

It took almost a hundred years from James 1 to the Act of Union. Ireland too was invaded but was never properly pacified even after Oliver Cromwell's men carried out a lot of atrocities.

The new country following the Act of Union was an amalgamation of three kingdoms and one principality Wales and became known as the United Kingdom with a flag formed from the flag of England, Red Cross on a white background, superimposed on the flag of Scotland, White Saltire on a blue background, superimposed on the flag of Ireland , White Saltire on a red background.

This flag is now known as the Union Flag, it is only a Union Jack when flown on a flag pole at the rear of a ship called the jackstaff.

In Victorian times with the enlarging of the Empire the country gradually began to be called Great Britain in homage to its power but it is still the United Kingdom.

I hope that makes sense. Great Britain is the island that contains England, Scotland and Wales. Truly a nebulous question, but one that makes for a great conversation starter with people who are British citizens formerly British subjects , as evidenced by the tapestry of answers to this question.

When it comes to political geography, the British Empire once laid claim to territories all over the globe and to a lesser extent still does.

One thing I can say with absolute certainty is that the English are a subset of the British, whereas the Welsh, the Scottish, and the Irish have political heritages that are more subtle and complex.

Worthy of note is that the concept of the nation state and national identity are relatively recent phenomena in Western Culture, dating back to the Peace of Westphalia in Prior to that time, kingdoms and dutchies in Europe were formed into a loose confederation known as the Holy Roman Empire, with territories being frequently fought over and redrawn.

After this time, territories started to form into sovereign nation states, with a clear line of royal succession. It was under this conceptual framework that the many kingdoms of the British Isles started to form more firm territorial boundaries.

Scotland was never conquered. This should not be confused with Brittany in France or "Britannia Minor". Britain has not existed in the true sense since the Roman times and Wales became a separate country in its own right to become a principality of England.

Great Britain is England, Scotland and Wales the three nations which together include all the land on the island. The "United Kingdom of Great Britain" was formed in by the Act of Union leading to a single kingdom with a single Parliament with Scotland retaining its own legal system.

Hence the present name of United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. This page may be out of date. Save your draft before refreshing this page.

Great Britain is just the main island of the British Isles. England, Scotland, and Wales are countries whose mainlands are all on the island of Great Britain.

They are however, part of the British Isles. It is, however, part of the British Isles. This despite being just ten miles off the coast of mainland Europe at their closest, and fifty five miles from the coast of Great Britain.

Ireland is the secondary island of the British Isles. Only Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom, although the whole of Ireland was part of the United Kingdom from to , when independence was declared.

Northern Ireland was given the right to remain part of the United Kingdom, which they immediately exercised.

This is how it has remained until now. Last year's referendum on Scottish independence saw Let's start from the scratch and go bit by bit to make you clear.

The name United Kingdom refers to the union of what were once four separate countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland though most of Ireland is now independent.

The name Brittannia was first applied to parts of these islands by the Romans, before then they were sometimes called Albion and sometimes the Tin Islands.

At the time of the Romans the area we now call Scotland was known either as Hibernia or Pictland. Wales was an area of Brittannia.

The native peoples of Brittannia all spoke a variety of what we now call Welsh. When the Angles, Saxons and Jutes started invading they did not massacre the British inhabitants nor did they send them all into exile.

One thing I can say with absolute certainty is that the English are a subset of the British, whereas the Welsh, the Scottish, and the Irish have political heritages that are more subtle and complex.

Worthy of note is that the concept of the nation state and national identity are relatively recent phenomena in Western Culture, dating back to the Peace of Westphalia in Prior to that time, kingdoms and dutchies in Europe were formed into a loose confederation known as the Holy Roman Empire, with territories being frequently fought over and redrawn.

After this time, territories started to form into sovereign nation states, with a clear line of royal succession.

It was under this conceptual framework that the many kingdoms of the British Isles started to form more firm territorial boundaries.

Scotland was never conquered. This should not be confused with Brittany in France or "Britannia Minor".

Britain has not existed in the true sense since the Roman times and Wales became a separate country in its own right to become a principality of England.

Great Britain is England, Scotland and Wales the three nations which together include all the land on the island. The "United Kingdom of Great Britain" was formed in by the Act of Union leading to a single kingdom with a single Parliament with Scotland retaining its own legal system.

Hence the present name of United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. This page may be out of date. Save your draft before refreshing this page.

Are they different or are they the same? Answered Oct 8, What is the difference between Great Britain and England?

Great Britain is just the main island of the British Isles. England, Scotland, and Wales are countries whose mainlands are all on the island of Great Britain.

They are however, part of the British Isles. It is, however, part of the British Isles. This despite being just ten miles off the coast of mainland Europe at their closest, and fifty five miles from the coast of Great Britain.

Ireland is the secondary island of the British Isles. Only Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom, although the whole of Ireland was part of the United Kingdom from to , when independence was declared.

Northern Ireland was given the right to remain part of the United Kingdom, which they immediately exercised. This is how it has remained until now.

Last year's referendum on Scottish independence saw Let's start from the scratch and go bit by bit to make you clear. The name United Kingdom refers to the union of what were once four separate countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland though most of Ireland is now independent.

Note that the "countries" of the UK are not independent. They form a part of the union, The UK. It' a nation within the UK. The demographics of England is dominated by English people, with English being the primary language.

The capital is London Wales: Wales is another country which neighbors England. However, the majority of population is ethnically Welsh, with Welsh being the main language.

The capital is Cardiff Scotland: Another country which is north of England, bordering it as well as a part of Ireland Northern Ireland.

The major ethnic group are the Scots. The cultures of England and Scotland differ vastly. The Island of Ireland: Ireland is actually divided into 2 separate countries.

One is Independent and the other a part of a Union. The languages are Irish and English. It is a part of the UK Republic of Ireland: The Wales and Berwick Act was repealed in , although the statutory definition of "England" it created by that Act still applies for laws passed before In new legislation since , what was referred to as "England" is now "England and Wales", while references to "England" and "Wales" refer to those political divisions.

England and Wales are treated as a single unit for some purposes, because the two form the constitutional successor to the former Kingdom of England.

The continuance of Scots law was guaranteed under the Treaty of Union that led to the Acts of Union , and as a consequence English law—and after , Irish law —continued to be separate.

Following the two Acts of Union, Parliament can restrict the effect of its laws to part of the realm, and generally the effect of laws, where restricted, was originally applied to one or more of the former kingdoms.

However, Parliament now passes laws applicable to Wales and not to England and vice versa , a practice which was rare before the middle of the 20th century.

Following the Government of Wales Act, effective since May , the National Assembly for Wales can legislate on matters devolved to it.

Following a referendum on 3 March , the Welsh Assembly gained direct law-making powers, without the need to consult Westminster.

This was the first time in almost years that Wales had its own powers to legislate. Each piece of Welsh legislation is known as an Act of the Assembly.

For a company to be incorporated in the United Kingdom, its application for registration with Companies House must state "whether the company's registered office is to be situated in England and Wales or in Wales , in Scotland or in Northern Ireland", [2] which will determine the law applicable to that business entity.

A registered office must be specified as "in Wales" if the company wishes to use a name ending cyfyngedig or cyf , rather than Limited or Ltd.

Outside the legal system, the position is mixed. Some organisations combine as "England and Wales", others are separate. England had five players making their Six Nations debut and began the contest with fewer caps than their hosts.

They have also never before beaten Wales in Cardiff after being behind at half-time, but they showed immense character to both upset the pre-match odds and recent history.

Wales tore into England from the start, accelerating into a point lead before England had caught breath through Halfpenny's long-range penalty and Rhys Webb's try, the scrum-half skipping into the right-hand corner after Taulupe Faletau had peeled away from a retreating Welsh scrum on the visitors' five metre line.

England hit back, Watson racing onto Mike Brown's grubber kick into the corner to gather and dive over for his first Test try, and despite Ford's missed conversion there was suddenly hope for the men in white.

In a frantic, febrile atmosphere Halfpenny and Ford exchanged penalties to make it after half an hour, Dan Biggar stretching the lead to eight points with a long-range drop-goal just before the break.

The scoreline reflected both English indiscipline and Wales' greater ruthlessness in the opposition 22, but it was England who struck first in the second period to blow the game wide open.

Wave after wave of bulldozing runs from their forwards dented the Welsh line, and as space opened up on the right Joseph spun out of one tackle and sliced between two other defenders with a dummy overhead pass to cross for his own first Test try.

Ford missed a long-range penalty that would have put England in front but the momentum appeared to be shifting.

James Haskell took the ball at pace from Youngs' flat pass and looked certain to score, only for a combination of the post and Alex Cuthbert's illegal work to hold him up short.
