Welsh & The Anglo Saxons

The relationships between the Welsh and the Anglo-Saxons were a complex and often confusing subject.

Following the withdrawal of the Roman military in about 410 AD, Southern Britain still maintained Roman Civic and Military organisation whilst various small Kingdoms formed in the North and the West.

The Saxons and Angles as well as Jutes and other Germanic groups had been settled in the east, often with the assistance and acquiescence of various British leaders. As is always the case, as the Saxons became more numerous and powerful, they wanted more land and they began to expand both Westwards and Northwards.
