The Mediterranean Reëmergence
in Great Britain
The Atlanto-Mediterraneans were not the only members of the Mediterranean
stock to invade Great Britain; smaller Mediterraneans are commonest in Wales
and in the former Cymric territory which stretches from the Midlands
to Glasgow. With the rise of the industrial revolution, the population
increased greatly in these two last named regions, which became the most
heavily industrialized areas in Britain; hence the Mediterranean increment
in the British population has risen during the last century and a half.
