Sailor Ron Folk music in an alternate reality? (28) RE: Folk music in an alternate reality? 15 Feb 10


I recall reading a book back in 1966, can't recall its name, where William the Bastard had been killed & his army destroyed at Hastings. It then told the history of England. The basic premise being instead of the French/English wars, the major battles were with the Norse/Germans. I presume that if that had happened we would be speaking a Norse/Germanic language instead of a Germanic/French one, so our folk songs would be completly differentn in lyrics if not in tune or content.
