The Anglo-Saxons were migrants from Northern Europe who settled in England in the fifth and sixth centuries. It refers to settlers from the German regions of Angeln and Saxony, who made their way over to Britain after the fall of the Roman Empire around AD 410.


However, the Anglo-Saxon mercenaries had for many years fought in the Roman army in Britain, so they were not total strangers to the island. Their invasions were slow and piecemeal, and began even before the Roman legions departed. There is even some evidence to suggest that some Saxons were invited to help protect the country from invasion.
