Anglo-Saxon England
By Sharon Fabian

1     England became England, the land of English-speaking people, at the beginning of the Middle Ages. Before that it had been the home of Iron Age tribes known as the Celts, and for a time, part of the Roman Empire.
2     Then beginning in the 400s AD, tribes from the north, known as the Angles, the Saxons, and the Jutes, moved in. Some accounts called these people settlers; other accounts called them invaders. Whatever they were, they came to England to stay.
3     We know about the events of that time period from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, the only written history surviving from that period. The Chronicle tells of battles and invasions and all types of changes over the years of the early Middle Ages.
