What Was the Influence of the Saxons on the Development of English Language and Customs?

Answer

According to several English language sites I have visited, the Saxon's were among the West Germanic peoples that came to England between 500 and 1100 AD. They brought their own languages to the area, and soon the Celtic language was replaced by what is now known as Old English. The Vikings also helped to change the language of that time. The next big language change happened because of the Norman Conquest.
