New Scientific reseach adds to growing evidence that the Anglo-Saxons did not replace the native population in England as history books suggests.

The data indicates at least some areas of eastern England absorbed very few Anglo-Saxon invaders, contrary to the views in many historical accounts.

Chemical anaylsis of human teeth from a Medieval cemetery in Yorkshire found few individuals of continental origins.

Full Story




This is a wicked discovery...canna wait to find out more about this...who thinks Time Team will do something about this soon??

If i remember right from my history classes, the Anglo-Saxon invasion was around the 1065 mark??
Could be wrong??

But what a find...they even have Genetic support for this....damn...love this type of find


If i find more links i will post here

cheers

I thought the Norman invasion was in 1066.

The Saxons earlier than that.

Awesome find, though.
