Britons were slaughtered by Anglo-Saxons
and had to take refuge elsewhere,
i.e in Brittany,
The lack of Celtic substrate is no wonder.
You needn't any Belgian to take part in this.

On Wikipedia I saw an article that claims that the
Eastern Britons were Belgae who spoke languages
closely related to Ango-Saxon, which accounts for the
general lack of Celtic substrate in Old English. It
claims that no Celtic inscriptions are found in E.
Briton. My impression was that it saw Belgae as
essentially a Celtic influenced form of Germanic and
similar to Frankish.
I'd like to hear from the rest of you regarding this
