However, Saxons and Danes are both thought to have made a significant contribution to Britain’s demography, especially in certain parts of the country.  By this time Wessex was the only Saxon kingdom that had not been overrun by Danes. As well as temporarily managing to repel a Viking invasion of his kingdom, Alfred succeeded in absorbing and integrating within it such Vikings as by then had chosen to settle there. During the comparatively long ensuing period of peace and stability he was able to win for his kingdom against the Danes, Alfred laid down within it both the necessary institutional and cultural foundations for Eng‐ land’s subsequent creation as a single unified and unitary state.

The first European countries to engage in such trans‐Atlantic slave trafficking were the same pair as had been the first to undertake the great voyages of early modernity, namely Spain and Portugal.  Although no such passage was discovered— not surprisingly since none exists—Cabot’s voyage did result in the ‘discovery’ of Newfoundland and New England, territories that England was to claim for itself. It was through its claim on the second of these territories that 44 FROM THE REFORMATION TO THE SECOND WORLD WAR England secured a toehold in the North American continent that was to prove so fateful in the succeeding centuries.

It also became the name of the language that eventually came to be spoken by its inhabitants, despite the Germanic dialect from which it evolved having been brought to Britain by Saxons, rather than by the Angles. At first, the Anglo‐Saxons appear to have lived alongside the Romanised Britons in separate enclaves. In time, how‐ ever, these relative newcomers became the dominant cultural and political presence in the land. Their customs and language became the established ones wherever they settled.
