A narrative is provided stretching from the period immediately before the great attacks on Britain in the 360s up to the great Justinianic plague of the 540s. This is the period which saw the end of direct Roman authority over Britain and the settlements of the Anglo‐Saxons. It also saw the creation of a new Britannia (Brittany) in north‐west Gaul, which survived in spite of the military dominance of the Franks. In Britain, the wars between the Anglo‐Saxon settlers and the Britons extended over several centuries, whereas, south of the Channel, the Franks subdued other barbarian peoples, were converted to Christianity, and allied with the Gallo‐Romans.

Keywords:   the end of Roman military and governmental power in Britain, the settlements of the Anglo‐Saxons, the origins of Brittany, The wars of the Britons and the Anglo‐Saxon settlers, Gildas
