So, someone born in Londinium in 568AD would have a frame of reference for all of these concepts you speak of and they would have been able to answer the question in a satisfactory way?Let's define it first:
Definition of COUNTRY
Let's take two and three:
2 a. the land of a person's birth, residence, or citizenship, their country
b. a political state or nation or its territory
3. the people of a state or district
The definition is basically: land, that is settled for more than a generation, and it's populace.
Also, was ancient Rome a country? Was Athens?
