The departure of the Romans from England was a highlight? That was a tragedy. They fell back into chaos, and stopped building roads until the Norman conquest.
The Romans were the best thing to ever happen to those isles.

No, that is quite wrong, and as a part Celt, I must confess to being offended by that. Especially given the purpose that the Romans put paved roads to. (There were always roads, but some people don't regard dirt roads as roads, as it appears.)

The other significant 5th-century event in Britain was the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons.

“The Romans were the best thing to ever happen to those isles.”

That’s just silly; there is no cultural trace that Rome had even been there. For Ireland/Scotland, Rome never WAS there.

If Latin (or Italian) was the worldwide language of business today, you’d have a point.
