Who were the Anglo Saxons?

The last Roman soldiers left Britain by AD410. New people came to Britain in ships across the North Sea – the Anglo-Saxons. The Anglo-Saxon age in Britain was from around AD410 to 1066.

The Anglo-Saxons were never called ‘Anglo-Saxons’ in their own time. This is a modern phrase.

  • The Anglo-Saxons were a mix of tribes from Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands.
  • The three biggest were the Angles, the Saxons and the Jutes.
  • The land they settled in became known as 'Angle-land', or England.
  • They brought Germanic languages and new customs and dress.

If we use the modern names for the countries they came from, the Saxons were German-Dutch, the Angles were Southern Danish, and the Jutes were Northern Danish. They arrived over a number of decades.
