Rise of Mercia during the Anglo Saxon Era

The Anglo Saxon era of Britain is a odd time for English history. The Romans had brought unity, Christianity, and urban living to Celtic Britain. Even after the Legions pulled out, the Roman Britons continued many of the mixed traditions of their past and Imperial influences. The Anglo Saxon invasions upended much of that stability, but the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms would be deeply influenced by the older Briton cultural factors. Within 300 years many of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms would start to convert to Christianity and become tied to the Continental civilization.
