'Everybody knows', so they say, that the origins of the English lie in the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons in England between 400-600 AD. This talk reconsiders that belief by (1) evaluating the evidence that underlies it, and (2) considering other approaches to interpreting the past. 'The Anglo-Saxons', it concludes, are invisible in the complex history of late Romano-British communities adapting and innovating through the post-imperial centuries as they evolved into 'the English’.

Refreshments from 17:45, talk from 18:00; all welcome.
