Back to Owlbut's History of England

The Timeline. Owlbut's Hoots. The Story.

The Roman army and generals had left by 407AD. Britons were on their own. No more taxes to pay, hurrah. No more being a slave in a villa, hurrah. No one to run the country efficiently, hur..ooops. No one to stop invaders, double ooops. England now returned to how it was almost 400 years ago with tribal warfare. Towns disappear and people go back to living in the countryside.

A brief video introduction


In 401, the estimated population of England (to the nearest ¼million) was 2 million people.
