The Anglians actually came from the region still called Anglen in northern Germany (Schleswig). However, their settlements may have extended also into what is now Denmark. The Saxons came, as you said from northern Germany (modern Hostein and Lower Saxony).
Sceats (or better Sceattas) are mainly found in England and Frisia, but important hoards were also uncovered in Denmark (Ribe) and Germany.

Finder: "I have to say that I found them in the
south of France, along an old roman road connection from Italy to Spain, in the
north of Marseille." "Discovered within the

Discussion : "the fact that these coins turned up so far south is quite significant I think and I suppose scholars here in the UK would actually be interested in this information. I doubt that history books will give you any clue, but the most likely explanation would be that these coins were carried by traders."
