Five broadcasts on the transition from Roman Britain to Saxon England 5-The Saxon Conquest

C. L. Matthews amateur archaeologist
A period of fifty years' peace came to an end in the second half of the sixth century, when the Anglo-Saxon settlers were again on the move; by 650 they had conquered nearly all of what is now England, and the boundaries of England, Scotland, and Wales were taking shape.
In discussing the end of the Dark Ages the speakers consider what this period has to contribute to a general understanding of the history of these islands. How much Roman civilisation survived the Dark Ages? Is the Anglo-Saxon element really as important to us as the nineteenth-century historians believe? In fact, how Welsh are the English?
