Anglo-Saxon text

Old English (Ænglisc, Anglisc, Englisc) or Anglo-Saxon[1] is an early form of the English language that was spoken and written by the Anglo-Saxons and their descendants in parts of what are now England and southern and eastern Scotland between at least the mid-5th century and the mid-12th century. What survives through writing represents primarily the literary register of Anglo-Saxon. From the 9th century, Old English experienced heavy influence from Old Norse, a member of the related North Germanic group of languages.

As Old English no longer has any native speakers, it is considered an extinct language.
