The 14th century — West Midlands dialects
In the Anglo-Saxon invasion and settlement of Britain, the Angles occupied the Midlands and North of England, and what is now southern Scotland. Their dialect of OE is called Anglian as a general term, but its northern and southern varieties were different enough for two dialects to be recognised — Northumbrian (north of the river Humber) and Mercian (south of the Humber).
