Anglo-Saxons were the ethnic group the resulted over the centuries from the melding of the various Germanic tribes who invaded Roman Britannia around the 5th century, including the Angles, Jutes, and Saxons.

By the time of the Norman invasion in 1066 the Anglo-Saxons had become the indigenous population of England.

Because the Romans brought with them the education, Engineering skills, and the markets that made the wealth that made these things possible.
