Old English to Modern English by Anthony Poulton-Smith - Leicester Museums - Leicester

The Saxons, Angles, Jutes and Frisians arrived on our shores from the fifth century AD. The basis of our culture. A language referred to as Old English. English is the most diverse language and this is not simply down to the number of words adopted from quite unrelated tongues, a remnant of colonial days. Learn how these came began, where they came from and, most interestingly, how they evolved, how the meanings changed and developed to become the language we know today.
