      I feel like all the birds singing slowly spell out the Rickroll. Check out the beginning of the Three Kingdoms war where they sing “Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down.” in Chinese.

    89. Jim Wolaver

      A very entertaining series of videos that help put history in context and thereby make it meaningful! Keep it up! Just one thing: At 11:12, the word is Romanicized, NOT romanticized. The English language was made more Roman in character rather than being made more about amorous relationships. It's a common error; we hear about romantic (with a "t") stuff all the time, but fail to consider how much of western civilization originated in Romanic (without a "t") culture. This misunderstanding is why most spell check libraries don't recognize words based on the root "Romanic." Rest assured, English is a Romanic language, not a romantic one! Languages are not inherently romantic; the thoughts expressed certainly can be. Hope this helps!

      11:14 the letter on the right doesn't turn into D. It makes a "TH" sound as well. The one on the left is used to start words like "then", the one on the right is at the end of syllables like "with". Some people still transliterate it like that but it isn't correct. Watch Jackson Crawford for more info.

    99. Blalack77

      Man.. This is one of my favorite eras of history. It still gets sort of confusing trying to figure out when England was Saxon versus when it was Viking, which kings belonged to which families/ethnicities, etc. The Romans conquer the Britons then leave, the Saxons Conquer the Britons, the Vikings conquer the Saxons and vice versa, French Vikings defeat the Saxons, then everyone mixes together... It doesn't seem like there's really a lot of difference - weren't Saxons basically Vikings in the beginning anyway? Their culture, traditions, language and weapons all seem pretty similar... Weren't the Saxons and Vikings able to communicate because their languages were so similar? Seems like I've read that before... But it's just crazy to think how England of all places was conquered back and forth and how much that changed history, what things would have been like otherwise, etc. There's just something about this era and I can't put my finger on it...

        Its fair to say that the English has some experience in colonisation before they tried their hand at it.
