4. The precise history of Breton ethnogenesis is as yet unknown. As described in Patrick Gaillou and Michael Jones' The Bretons (Oxford, United Kingdom: Blackwell, 1991), the main schools of thought assume that the Bretons are mostly descended from 5th and 6th century CE refugees from Britain, or that they developed from the only Gaulish population unromanized by the Roman Empire, or that they are a mixture of Briton refugees and Gaulish remnants.

See [1] for a general guide to Breton history, and the soc.culture.breton FAQ at [2].
