(p.245) 15 Natives
Identity of England

Robert Colls

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the changing attitudes to those who were deemed to live in the more important England, and the ethnological theories that established their ancient title to it. English natives such as these were discovered in the poorer and more marginal places. In spite of the profound cultural conservatism, not to say condescension, the return of the native did have positive effects. Certain kinds of poor people came to be valued and even, in a way, honored.

Keywords:   English natives, changing attitudes, England, ethnological theories, cultural conservatism, condescension
