Egbert was the first monarch to establish a stable and extensive rule over Anglo-Saxon England. He is buried at Winchester.

- From the 790s, Vikings landed in England. They came from Scandinavia. They killed, plundered and took slaves.

- After the Romans left Britain, the Saxons settled in Britain and took most of southern England. They drove the Celts to the North (Scotland) and West (Wales and Cornwall). England was divided in kingdoms.

- The Romans ruled Britain from 43 AD to 410 AD (Anno Domini). Emperor Hadrian had a long wall built in 122 AD in the North of England (about 120 km long). Towards the end of the Roman period, invaders attacked Britain (East coast) : the Saxons, the Angles and the Jutes).

In the centuries before the Romans arrived, Britain was not ruled as a nation but it was divided in many different tribes fighting against each other.
