    Ann Coulter's heckler (here, here, here, and here) may have been a kook, but he was right about one thing: many whites came to this country as slaves. With copious help from sources, I will recount a famous episode of Scots enslavement by the British. On September 3, 1650, the British, under Oliver Cromwell, defeated the Scots, under David Leslie, at the Battle of Dunbar. (See 1892 Gardiner's Atlas - Battle of Dunbar September 3rd 1650 for a nice picture of the British and Scots positions.) The British took some 10,000 Scots prisoners, several of whom were, on September 6,...

    But now a new reason has emerged why the royals might be a particularly interesting subject, with the revelation that they used to dine on human flesh. Kate and Wills will hopefully not follow the cannibal traditions of their ancestors (PA) According to a new book on medicinal cannibalism, written by University of Durham academic Dr Richard Sugg, well-off and well-educated Brits used to eat human flesh, blood and bones as medicine. This practice apparently took place in other parts of Europe as well up until the end of the 18th century. While referring to the barbarity of cannibals in...
