‘a tribe that was less significant than others’[edit]

Wasn't Mercia, which dominated Britain between 600 and 900, an Anglian kingdom? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.114.147.138 (talk) 23:36, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Yes... could you be more specific as to the problem? Or are you just asking? 10:23, 23 March 2016 (UTC)Rob984 (talk)

Status parameter = Country in infobox[edit]

There is a discussion at Talk:Wales#Status parameter in infobox over whether it must just be country or whether it can say country of the UK. Dmcq (talk) 19:06, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

England[edit]

The Danish word for field or meadow is Eng and is pronounced Ing in Danish as it is in the word "England". Thus England means "The Land of Meadows" and not "Angle Land" ( Land of the Angles) as commonly assumed in England. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Profoundpaul (talkcontribs) 07:47, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

Not actually assumed but backed up by the references in the Toponymy section of the article, so you would need very strong reliable source just to mention it. MilborneOne (talk) 14:58, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

Wildlife[edit]

Wildlife in England! Should this be included? - could be a big "chapter".Osborne 19:45, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
