Are there any literary texts from this time period? Are there any legends?

It'S a long story p.21 --> It is at this point that another legend is born. A man known as the Venerable Bede (pronounced "bead"), the British Celts "invited" the Germanic peoples to
come to England to help fend off the attacking northern and western Celts

2. The Mabinogion:
• A collection of Middle Welsh prose know by the curious name of Mabinogion.
• 11 separate tales are normally included within the Mabinogion corpus. The Mabinogion texts are concerned with the heroic age or mythodological past of the British Isles.

Arthurian legend

The Arthurian legend was made popular by Geoffrey of Monmouth in his writing History of the kings of Britain written in 1135 AD. The author drew upon earlier histories including History of the Britons by Nennius, the Annales Cambriae, and the Complaining Book of Gildas
