Farmers used oxen to pull ploughs up and down long strip fields. Children with dogs herded cattle and sheep. They also kept a lookout for wolves - which still lived in Britain at this time” (Who Were the Anglo-Saxons?). The people had very simple lives with no literature and a commitment to the Church....   [tags: Anglo-Saxons, Germanic peoples, Beowulf, Paganism]

The Anglo Saxons

- The Anglo-Saxons are a people that are almost entirely unknown to the world today. Their society flourished a thousand years ago, after the fall of the Roman empire and very few remnants of their life remain. As such, the only glimpse of these people lies within their literature: the poems and letters remaining from the time. However, understanding the writings of any society requires a knowledge of the context and culture behind them. This creates a devastating paradox in which it becomes nearly impossible to deduce an unbiased view of life in Anglo-Saxon England....   [tags: Beowulf, Epic poetry, Translation, Anglo-Saxons]

The Battle Of The Anglo Saxons

- Anglo-Saxons dwelt in times when people conceived war was primarily for endurance to survive whether the need be against humanity, or a savage beast. Enduring through such immense, treacherous conditions devised the battle customs of the Anglo-Saxons.
