The Saxons & Vikings
knowledge of England in the 5th & 6th centuries comes from the British writer Gildas, the Anglo- Saxon Chronicle, saints’ lives ,
poetry, archaelogical findings and place -name studies . British
landlords ruled small, unstable kingdoms and continued some Roman traditions of governance.
In the mid-5th cent , Vertigern, a British leader, hired Germanic mercenaries to help
defend against peoples of the north (Picts & Scots ). In the end
they revolted & the process of invasion and settlement began. The first Saxon „ kings “ were Hengist & Horsa in Kent , Aelle in
Sussex, Cerdic / Cynric in Wessex . So the first „ Englishbecame mainly from Northern Germany & Denmark .
The resistance of
the Celts was long. They were free at the time, not like other Roman
provinces on the Continent .
Around 500, the
Britons seem to have won several victories. One of their leaders was Ambrosius Aurelianus and one of their victories was at the place
called Mount Badon. The main leader of the Britons at this time may
have been the warrior later called King Arthur .
By the 7th cent.
the invaders managed to conquer the greater part of the land . The
invaders came from 3 powerful tribes :

  • The Saxons – settled from the Thames Estuary westwards, in the south of England; they formed the kingdoms of Sussex, Wessex, Essex & Middlesex
  • The Angles – settled in East Anglia, the Midlands & Northumbria
  • The Jutes – settled mainly in Kent, Hampshire & the Isle of Wight

Prehistory, Saxon invasion and Celtic Kingdoms

By 300AD all the towns had thick walls. The Romans left about 20 large towns and a hundred of small ones. Many of the towns were at first army camps and the Latin word for it ­ castra ­ has still remained in the names of these towns: Leicester, Chester, Doncaster, Lancaster etc. The Towns were well built and connected with roads. In the countryside there were many large farms called villas. The life expectancy was short ­ 2040 years. The Saxon invasion The Invaders ­ At first the Germanic tribes only raided Britain but after 430 AD they began to settle. The invaders came from three powerful Germanic tribes ­ the Saxons, Angles and Jutes. The Jutes settled in Kent and south coast, angles settled in east and north midlands and the Saxons settled between then. They all drove most of the Celts to Wales and in north to Scotland. Hardly anything is left from the Germanic culture. The AngloSaxons established a number of kingdoms

An Anglo-Saxon attack on Rome forced the Romans to leave The British Isles. They were replaced by Germanic tribes ­ Angles, Jutes and Saxons, who drove the Celts to the north (Scotland) and west (Wales). They came from the North and Baltic Seas.

It is known that they established separate kingdoms: the Saxons settled in the South and West, the Angles in the East Anglia, Mercia, Northumbria and the Jutes in Kent.

The capital city, London, was also built during that time. The Romans built the Hadrian's Wall in AD 122 to keep out the 2 raiding Picts from what is now Scotland. Roman soldiers brought Christianity to Britain. In AD 410, Roman forces were withdrawn from Britain. With the Romans gone, the Britons could not protect themselves from invading tribes. The greatest danger came from Germanic seafaring tribes called Angles, Saxons and the Jutes. They established kingdoms in southern and eastern England. The gradual intermarriage of these new waves of invaders and the people already living in Briton created what was called Anglo-Saxon England ­ `Angle-land'. The Angles and the Saxons became the most powerful tribes in England with the Saxons in southern England and the Angles in the north. The language the Anglo-Saxons spoke (Anglo-Saxon German) gradually developed into Old English. Old English was not a written language
