These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside The British Navy Book:Look inside the book: From Csar's De Bello Gallico we learn that in his time the Ancient Britons made use of boats with a wooden frame, supporting wicker-work instead of planking, and rendered watertight by a covering of skins-just such boats, in fact, though probably20 larger-as, under the name of 'coracles', are used to this day on the Wye and some other rivers and estuaries. ...But though there must have been a strong Viking element among the Saxon conquerors of England-so much so that it became known as Angle-land, or England, from the Angles-yet the Saxons or English do not seem to have taken so enthusiastically to the sea as the Norwegians and Danes, and, except when special efforts to create fighting fleets were made by King Alfred and Edmund Ironside, were never able to prevent the incursions of their Danish and Norse kinsmen, who, in process of time, firmly established themselves in the country.
