blood a restlessness and a yearning ... a craving for the unknown seas.

Penrowe, swarthy Phoenician; Hodge, Bates, straight clear Saxon, fair as corn; Thulstan, black Gael. These are three rough, stinging, formidable elements in the Blend of Blood. What a devil of an island this isthis mixing-bowl of all that is most fierce and enduring in man, stirred by war in its beginnings and matured in its iron-bound cask of tradition in the ratinfested cellar of the centuries ! Ancient Briton. ... Ancient Roman-look at Allan of Cumberland, an English yeoman from the Pennine Chain, the Backbone of England-with the high-bridged nose and fine-drawn face of one of the Roman gentlemen who lived here, and laid the Great Wall, and Watling Street, and Uxbridge Road so long ago. The Romans Were in Britain for four hundred and sixty-six years : they left blood, too ! The red-headed monsters of Arthurian legend, the Saxons, came after them; and then the Norsemen cracked through. Johansen and Holm have been Yorkshiremen for centuries; yet there are no two between Heligoland and Hammerfest whom you could more easily visualise in a longboat under a ragged sail on a grey sea.
