English history until 1603- 5th century
. 5th century
From the 5th century there were many invaders. The most common were the Anglo-Saxons and the Jutes. They were coming from Northern Europe especially from Germany and Denmark. They accepted the Latin way of life. They changed their arts, language, political organisation and they converted to Christianity. They also divided Britain into seven small kingdoms. Then the Romans invaded the country again and they plundered the land. The only king who was fighting against them was King Arthur.
After his death the Britons were driven to Wales, Cornwall and Devon. The Angles were the biggest tribe by now. The land was called after them – Anglia. The best known Anglo-Saxon king was called Alfred the Great. He stopped the Danes and established peace with them.
