I think Dan has hit the nail on the head. Its a question of whether the Anglo-Saxons displaced the natives or simply ruled them.

If the natives are displaced then the Anglo-Saxon language will become the norm.

If the Anglo-Saxons did rule without actually having any kind of mass immigration into Britain then we'd expect the language to remain unchanged in the same way it was when the Normans took over.

MJHarper - when you mention the creation myth, are you referring to the idea that boatloads of people actually came to britain took over the land? Again sorry if this is covered in the book, like I said before don't have it yet.
