How did Odin lose his eye? Why did we call our Viking and Roman Living History Education service Lore and Saga?
We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills: We shall never surrender.

The Anglo-Saxons.

( What has Gone Before. )

368 CE. The Saxons start to be a nuisance in Britannia.

407 CE. The Romans pick up their toys and go home.

410 CE. The Romans tell Britannia to stop pestering them and look after itself.

410 CE. Rome is sacked.

449 CE. The Saxons, Angles and Jutes stop messing about and invade Britain properly.

500 CE. The Roman Empire is history.

 

( For more details and less flippancy see the Chronology. )

“We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills: We shall never surrender.”

Winston Churchill 1940

When our greatest prime minister addressed a beleaguered nation at war with Germany, few people realised that the language he used was chosen to reach very deep into the history of the English people.

All but one of the words of his speech were taken from the Old English language of the Anglo-Saxons. The other word was the unthinkable “surrender” taken from the Norman French tongue and not present at all in Old English.
