Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.

Danes apologized to Ireland for Viking raids from way back, I thought they apologized to England/UK too. Pretty amazing since those raids happened around 1000 AD.  It must have been pretty bad.  Some of that history is known.

Stuff and nonsense.

All Scandinavia's been infected with near terminal PC.

And yes, it Was pretty bloody back in those days, but the Danes, Swedes and Norwegians were by no means unique in that respect.

In Ireland even the Monasterys made war on each other.

They caused more damage than the Northern Invaders did.

The UK is possibly the most artifact-rich area, and the most investigated and studied region in the world.

A lot of waves of migration.
