The Anglo-Saxons were the people who lived in Great Britain during the period from around the year 400 to when the Norman Conquest occurred in 1066.
They were descended from Germanic Tribes who moved to Great Britain after Roman rule ended.
The language they spoke developed into what we today call English.
