They became the basis for English culture, and their gutteral, vigorous language became the spoken language of the people, the language now known as Old English (Allen et al. 23). The Anglo-Saxons changed over time. The early invaders were seafaring wanderers whose lives were bleak, violent, and short (Allen et al. 25).
