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.
