When the Gospel was first preached in Britain, the island was inhabited by Celtic peoples. In the 500's, pagan Germanic tribes, the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes, invaded Britain and drove the Christian Celts out of what is now England into Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. The new arrivals (called collectively the Anglo-Saxons) were then converted by Celtic missionaries moving in from the one side and Roman missionaries moving in from the other. (They then sent missionaries of their own, such as Boniface , to their pagan relatives on the Continent.) In the 800's the cycle partly repeated itself, as the Christian Anglo-Saxons were invaded by the Danes, pagan raiders, who rapidly conquered the northeast portion of England. They seemed about to conquer the entire country and eliminate all resistance when they were turned back by Alfred, King of the West Saxons. In his later years, having secured a large degree of military security for his people, Alfred devoted his energies to repairing the damage that war had done to the cultural life of his people. He translated Boethius Consolations of Philosophy into Old English, and brought in scholars from Wales and the Continent with whose help various writings of

Part 3: Arthurian Britain The Dark Ages
From the time that the Romans more or less abandoned Britain, to the arrival of Augustine at Kent to convert the Saxons, the period has been known as the Dark Ages. Written evidence concerning the period is scanty, but we do know that the most significant events were the gradual division of Britain into a Brythonic west, a Teutonic east and a Gaelic north; the formation of the Welsh, English and Scottish nations; and the conversion of much of the west to Christianity. By 4l0, Britain had become self-governing in three parts, the North (which already included people of mixed British and Angle stock); the West (including Britons, Irish, and Angles); and the South East (mainly Angles). With the departure of the Roman legions, the old enemies began their onslaughts upon the native Britons once more. The Picts and Scots to the north and west (the Scots coming in from Ireland had not yet made their homes in what was to become later known as Scotland), and the Saxons, Angles, and Jutes to the south and east. The two centuries that followed the collapse of Roman Britain happen to be among the worst recorded times in British history, certainly the most obscure. Three main sources for our knowledge of the Anglo-Saxon permeation of Britain come from the 6th century monk Gildas, the 8th century historian Bede, and the 9th century historian Nennius. From them, and from archeological evidence, it seems that the Anglo-Saxon domination of Britain took place in two distinct phases. I have hesitated to use Bede's term of "Conquest" for sound reasons.

External History
Once we move into a discussion of Old English, we are moving away from the more speculative (but systematic) endeavors of language reconstruction (Indo-European) into an area for which we do have more solid footingin the form of written documents.
Before the Germanic settlers arrived in Britain and became the first speakers of "English," other peoples had claimed the island as their home. The first inhabitants for whom we have linguistic knowledge were the Celts, who arrived around the time of the Bronze Age (2000-500 B.C.). They were almost certainly the first speakers of an Indo-European language to arrive. In 55 B.C.E. Julius Caesar attempted an invasion of Britain, but he was not to succeed until the following year (54 B.C.E.). How successful he was, however, is perhaps suggested by the fact that the tribute Caesar demanded before returning to Gaul was never paid. In 43 C.E., the Emperor Claudius, with 40,000 men, was far more successful, although the Romans never penetrated far into Wales or Scotland. Hadrian's wall marks extent of the Roman Governor Agricola's rule northward. The lands south of the Wall were ruled by Romans for over 300 years. The Romans built roads, baths (such as those at Bath), temples, and introduced Christianity. By the end of the Roman occupation, the subjugated Celts had apparently lost the ability to defend themselves against the Picts and Scots from the north. When the legions withdrew in 410 C.E. to defend the diminishing Empire, the Celts began to look elsewhere for defensive aid.

English in Great Britain When the Roman legions left Britain, the native Britons were left to defend themselves. At this time, the Britons were less warlike than they had been prior to the Roman occupation. The Britons were exposed to the threat of attack from the Picts of caledonia to the north. The Roman patrolling of Hadrian's Wall had ceased. The southern and eastern coasts were also exposed since no Roman fleet patrolled the Channel and the North Sea. The Picts and Scots of Caledonia attacked the northern border. The Britons requested help from the Jutes, a Germanic tribe, to push the Picts and the Scots back. In return for their help, the Jutes were given the Isle of Thanet off the north-east coast of Kent. The English Conquest In 449 A.D., the Jutes, led by two brothers, Hengist and Horsa, landed at Ebbsfleet, off the coast of Kent. Not content with the Isle of Thanet, the Jutes spread all over Kent. The Britons defended the territory fiercely. The Jutish leader, Horsa, was killed at the Battle of Aylesford, but the Britons were eventually forced to draw back. Other Germanic tribes, the Saxons and the Angles, followed the Jutes.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Angles (German: Angeln , Old English: Englas , Latin: Angli ) were a Germanic people , a large number of whom migrated from the northernmost part of present-day continental Germany an area which was Danish until the 19th century to Britain in the 5th century , along with the Frisians Saxons and Jutes . The southern Part of Britain was later called Engla-lond (in Old English - "Land of the Angles"), thus England According to sources such as the Venerable Bede , the Angles founded Northumbria East Anglia , and Mercia . Thanks to the major influence of the Saxons, the people of England are also known as Anglo-Saxons , and of course as English . A region of the United Kingdom is still known by the name East Anglia. The Angle homeland where the rest of that people stayed, a small peninsular form in the north-eastern portion of the modern German bundesland of Schleswig-Holstein , itself on the Jutland Peninsula , is still called Angeln today. It is formed as a triangle drawn roughly from modern Flensburg on the Flensburger Fjord to Kiel and then to Maasholm on the Schlei inlet.

where did the anglo-saxons come from?
Andrew J. Sunday, January 11, 2004, 02:12 GMT Most history books say they came from what is now Schleswig-Holstein and Jutland. But could they also have possibly come mainly from what is now Holland and Flanders? If you look at maps, it seems like Dutch speakers kind of live in a narrowing band that extends southwest from Holland even in the northernmost part of France. From there it's obviously a very short leap across the Strait of Dover into England.
Obviously the English and Dutch languages are very similar, and the Frisian language of the northwestern Netherlands (once spoken as far south as Amsterdam) is thought to be English's estranged brother.
Also, Dutch and Flemish placenames seem to look slightly more similar to English ones than those of Schleswig-Holstein and Denmark. Jordi Sunday, January 11, 2004, 06:55 GMT Andew:
Have you thought if the Dutch and Frisians also came from futher inland? After all a lot of the land has been quite recently recovered from the sea. The Dutch will have probably studied all this so let us know. One must ask himself further questions than present linguistic borders. Clark Sunday, January 11, 2004, 09:27 GMT

There are few events in history of Great Britain that have not left their mark to this day. Thus, the Gaelic - language of Celtic tribes, that invanded the island in 6th century before Christ is still spoken in the northwest of country. In the first century A.D. began the occupation of the Romans but it was of no consequences though they built towns, roads, centralized administration and there are still some place-names e.g. Lincoln and ruins of Roman buildings all over the country. In early 5th century the Roman army had to go home so they left British Isles. Then came there Germanic tribes of Angles, Saxons and Jutes and the Celtic had to refuge in the mountains. The Anglo- Saxons established a unified kingdom and a high level of culture. They astonished the Christianity. The Britons in Wales become trust in Christ and in 5th century St. Patrick had brought the Christianity faith to Ireland and from there it spreaded to Scotland. This period was also plagued by Viking raids. In l066 the Norman army lead by William the Conqueror invanded the country. William, the Duke of Normandy, became a king and the hegemony of Normands begun. The king owned all the land, granting estates to his barons. Only Henry II established law and order. He punished the rebelious Norman barons, he instituted royal courts, travelling judges and the jury system. His son was Richard I - Lionheart spent most of his time on crusades so the power had his brother John I and he ruled so badly that in l2l5 the barons and bishops forced him to sign a charter protecting their privileges. This MAGNA CHARTA was a cornerstone of British freedom. This document established a basis of supremancy of low over the king and laid the foundations for parliamentary goverment.

Anglo-Saxon Rule to The Norman Conquest When the Roman legions withdrew, around A.D. 410, they left the country open to waves of invasions by Jutes, Angles, and Saxons, who established themselves in small kingdoms throughout the former Roman colony. From the 8th through the 11th centuries, the Anglo-Saxons contended with Danish raiders for control of the land. By the time of the Norman conquest, the Saxon kingdoms were united under an elected king, Edward the Confessor. His successor was to rule less than a year before the Norman invasion. The date 1066 is familiar to every English schoolchild. It marked an epic event, the only successful military invasion of Britain in history, and one of England's great turning points: King Harold, the last Anglo-Saxon king, was defeated at the Battle of Hastings, and William of Normandy was crowned William I.

Home Discussion Boards Join Refer Page to a Friend ... Haligwaerstow History of Anglo-Saxon Heathenry The word Heathen comes from Old English hæðen, a word whose origin has been stated by scholars as being a native word related to Greek ethnos , or a gloss for Latin pagan "rural dweller" meaning "dweller on the heath." Regardless of its origin, it is the preferred term when speaking of the ancient pagan religion of the Saxons, Jutes, Angles, Frisians, Varni, and other Germanic invaders of what is now England. Together, these tribes once in England are known as the Anglo-Saxons, although no such unity was known until well after their conversion. The first mention of a Germanic tribe is crica 230 BCE when the Basternae migrated to the Black Sea, and came to the attention of Greek chroniclers. From 230 BCE, the Germanic tribes would come in increasing conflict with the Celts, Illyrians, and Romans, eventually swallowing up most of the Celtic and Illyrian territories in Central Europe. This was the beginnings of the Migration Era which lasted from about 375 BCE to 550 CE (although the Viking expeditions should be counted as a part of this as well), an era when nearly every Germanic tribe was actively on the move. Over population and a need for new farm lands sent the Germanic tribes in search of new lands. The invasion of Great Britain by the Angles, Jutes, Saxons, Frisians, and other Germanic tribes were amongst the last of the Great Migration. In the fifth century, an exodus of tribes took place to Great Britain. The Angles invaded Britain from the area of Schleswig-Holstein, and are mentioned by Tacitus in his writing
