Embark on an exciting journey to the past to meet the Anglo-Saxons


The Anglo-Saxons were people from Northern Germany who came to Britain in waves and quickly established their own kingdoms between the time of the Romans and the Normans. At first glance, it may seem like the Anglo-Saxons did not contribute much to British history. They didn't even have a writing system until Christian missionaries arrived


So, why are the Anglo-Saxons so important to British history? Some people may think of this time as a dark time full of feuding kings. Although there were a lot of kings and plenty of fighting, the Anglo-Saxons also laid the foundation for modern English society. They created the structure needed to form one country out of different tribes. When the Normans took over in 1066, they built on top of Anglo-Saxon social and political structures.


For years, people have focused on leaders like King Alfred the Great or events like the Norman Conquest. But the Anglo-Saxons were more than just a few leaders or events. They structured a nation that would go on to conquer vast swaths of the modern world, and their ingenuity still structures life as we know it today.
