Default Ænglisc

Ænglisc is the West Germanic language spoken in large parts of the British Isles and elsewhere in northwest Europe from roughly the fifth through the twelfth centuries CE. It is much more highly inflected than modern English so newcomers to the language may find it easier to learn if they already have some knowledge of, say, modern German.

Clarification: Languages closely related to Ænglisc were spoken outside the British Isles, rather than the pure language itself.
