I was recently in Canterbury and there is good evidence that the Roman city was allowed to decay (or was destroyed) and that the site was abandoned for 100-150 years before people started living there again. Even then it was probably only using the remnants of buildings as lodgings and farming the land around. I find it hard to integrate this evidence with a hypothesis that argues for a cultural integration and against invasion. If this was an integration why was the life style so dramatically changed and why did the citizens of Canterbury abandon what would have been structurally superior buildings to live in the countryside.
