Well, surpringly, perhaps not true in the case of the Anglo-Saxons -- the 
evidence is just not there.  There is a growing view amongst respectable 
archeologists here that there was no Anglo-Saxon "invasion" of these isles, 
just a cultural and linguistic shift adopted by the natives here after the 
collapse of Rome as a significant imperial power.  Of course, the latter-day 
"Anglo-Saxons" did their best to fulfil your assertions.   But you have 
missed out the worst offenders from your list -- Homo sapiens sapiens --  
which is probably why we don't meet too many Neanderthals these days.

Best wishes,
