Book cover
excerpt from the book..What manner of people did first inhabite this our country, which hathmost generallie and of longest continuance béene knowne among all nationsby the name of Britaine as yet is not certeinly knowne; neither can it bedecided fr[=o] whence the first inhabitants there of came, by reason ofsuch diuersitie in iudgements as haue risen amongst the learned in this[Sidenote: The originall of nations for the most part vncerteine.]behalfe. But sith the originall in maner of all nations is doubtfull, andeuen the same for the more part fabulous (that alwaies excepted which wefind in the holie scriptures) I wish not any man to leane to that whichshall be here set downe as to an infallible truth, sith I doo but onlieshew other mens conjectures, grounded neuerthelesse vpon likelie reasons,concerning that matter whereof there is now left but little othercerteintie, or rather none at all.
