Top 5 North Essex and Ipswich Jobs - Perfect Placement

Ipswich and north Essex was once ruled over by the Wuffingas monarchy of the 6th century Kingdom of East Angles, before being incorporated into the more familiarly named Kingdom of England in 918 AD and then later uniting with the other kingdoms (becoming the UK) in 1707. Believed to be the birthplace of the English language, the fifth century East Angles population spoke Old English, which later turned into Middle English, then Early Modern English, and ultimately Modern English. Therefore 5th century East Anglia is the first place in the world where English was ever spoken.
