England has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Finds of utensils indicate this. Before and after Christ the Romans invaded. This was not easy and they also needed several raids over the years to make this a success. Because England was an island, other countries regularly raided. With the arrival of the Germans, the Romans disappeared step by step from England in the 5th century. The original inhabitants were also driven out or adapted. In the centuries that followed, raids came from the Vikings. This got so out of hand that the Vikings went to settle in England. Almost all of England was occupied until they were defeated and driven out. The current England was born. This island would grow into a powerful world country with a lot of wealth and expansion of territories. Both mainland and overseas areas. This to this day.
