Thehistory of Anglo-Saxon England broadly covers early medieval England from the end of Roman rule and the establishment of Anglo-Saxon kingdoms in the 5th century until the Conquest by the Normans in 1066.Christianisation of the Anglo-Saxons began in 597 and was at least nominally completed in 686.

Early Anglo-Saxon buildings in Britain were generally simple, not using masonry except in foundations but constructed mainly usingtimber with thatch for roofing. Generally preferring not to settle within the old Roman cities, the Anglo-Saxons built small towns near their centres of agriculture, at fords in rivers or sited to serveas ports. In each town, a main hall was in the centre, provided with a central hearth.
Manuscripts were far from the only Anglo-Saxon art form, but they have survived in much greater numbers thanother types of object.
Old English, sometimes called Anglo-Saxon, was the language spoken under Alfred the Great and continued to be the common language of England
