Who is considered Anglo-Saxon? Anglo-Saxon is a term used to describe any member of the Germanic people that inhabited and ruled territories that are part of England and Wales from the fifth century CE to the time of the Norman Conquest 1066. The Anglo-Saxons were migrants from northern Europe who settled in England in the fifth and sixth centuries. They initially were many small groups that were divided into a number of kingdoms. Eventually the Anglo-Saxons were joined together in a single political realm of the kingdom of England during 924-939. The Anglo-Saxons spoke in Old English. A number of other languages were understood as well, including Latin which was the language of the church, Greek, and Irish which was the language of early missionaries. The first Anglo-Saxons who settled in England were pagans. There is little insight into the religious practices. The Anglo-Saxon kingdoms adopted the Christian faith over the course of the next century under the influence of Roman missionaries and Irish monks. During the 11th century Anglo Saxon England was conquered and the last Anglo-Saxon King was killed at Hastings in 1066.
