A new exhibition has opened at the British Library in London - "Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms: Art, Word, War." Billed as a "once in a generation exhibition," it promises to show off not only the exceptional collection in the British Library itself but also treasures now housed elsewhere - in England or further afield in Europe.

The premise of the show is the world of the Anglo-Saxons, a period of roughly 600 years, stretching from the early 5th century CE when Roman troops officially left the British Isles and groups of Germans began to move in, to about 1066 CE when Duke William of Normandy defeated King Harald II Godwinson and took the crown for himself.

Never knew that English was actually German? Read more from Why English is a Germanic Language.
