The-Origin-of-the-English-Nation-coverwebBy H. Munro Chadwick. Have you ever wondered where the term “Anglo-Saxon” came from?

This book will tell you. The author provides a comprehensive overview of the Germanic tribes who invaded and settled in England following the end of Roman-occupied Britain and assimilated into that nation.

This work starts in the sixth century with the first Saxon invasions, and follows the succession of further migrations from central and northern Germany which created the culture and language today known as the “English” people.

This book does not delve into the pre-Germanic origins of Britain—shown by present-day DNA analysis to be the majority of the English people. It does however provide a highly instructive example of how a culture changes as a result of demographic shift: a lesson which the present-day English people, facing a new invasion of unassimilable immigrants, would do well to learn.

Hector Munro Chadwick (1870 –1947) was professor of Anglo-Saxon at the University of Cambridge and a pioneer in integrating the study of Old English with archaeology and history.
