    The Anglo Saxons wore Armor made of steal and metal. They had swords spears and shields .they died at the same time as the Vikings . There were three strong tribes called the Angles the Saxons ant the Juts .They were around from 500AD to 1100AD which is 600 years. They lived in England and named it and lots of other places . They wore metal hats and wore sandals to protect their feet that were made of leather. They built huts made out of rocks to live in and had small villages.
    I would like to know what type of things they ate and if the hunted animals like foxes, wolves and things. I would like to know where they came from and what the young Anglo-Saxons did . Did the young Anglo-Saxons go to school or did they work all day helping their family to keep them and their family alive? What happened to them , did the Vikings kill them with a war or did they just die naturally?

The Vikings was from Scandinavia meaning Denmark, Sweden , Norway. The Vikings never wore tusks on their helmet yet they did make them .The famous tribes in the Anglo Saxons were the angles the Saxons and the jutes. The Vikings were farmers and they raided the island because where they were had really harsh weather and they needed a hot place to farm because they couldn`t grow anything.

    Anglo Saxons
    In 793 AD the Anglo Saxons’ religious island of Lindisfarne was attacked by the Vikings and they killed all of the monks that lived there. Anglo Saxon children would not go to school instead girls would help around the house and boys would learn the skills of their fathers. The Anglo Saxons would live in a hut.
    What did they wear? What did they do in their spare time?

    The Anglo-Saxons were a group of men who used to fight .They wore heavy helmets with silver metal shields . Their shields were as big as a human being who is 135cm long .Most of the Anglo-Saxons were born to be fighters .When I said most of them I meant that not all of them were born to be fighters . Being an Anglo-Saxon fighter is very hard work . The shield is so heavy last time in year 4 when I learnt about the Anglo-Saxons at the end of the theme a man who is from a museum came in and showed us the clothing that the Anglo-Saxon used to wear and he also let us hold the shield. OH MY it was the most heaviest thing I have ever held in school!

    Is being an Anglo-Saxon very fun?
    What colour is most important to the Anglo-Saxons?

    In year 5 we have learnt about the Anglo Saxons . The Anglo Saxons once lived in really small huts.The Anglo Saxons were split into Angles and Jutes. The Vikings once attacked Lindisfarne and took most of the precious things over there. The people who lived in Lindisfarne were called Monks all they did day and night was eat a little bit then pray a lot then sleep for a little bit now Lindisfarne is called Holly Island. The Vikings used to say they are going to wear helmets with horns on it to make them look fierce but they really didn’t wear helmets with horns on it. For punishments they drowned them,stripped them naked or and they took some as slaves.

    Did the Anglo Saxons or Vikings have children? Did all Vikings and Saxons grow up to fight?

    Lindisfarne which is a Monastery where monks lived. Saxons made pots by hand. In Britain most Saxons were called Saints or Christians so they set up mini churches.

    The first Viking invasion was in 793AD, at Lindisfarne sometimes called Holy Island. The Vikings went to Holy Island/ Lindisfarne , killed some the monks and took all the treasure and their belongings . Not all the monks got killed , some of the monks were taken as slaves and some of them drowned in the ocean . The Vikings also burned down the monestry that the monks built out of wood and stone so it was easy for the Vikings to burn down .

    History of Anglo Saxons
    The Anglo Saxons lived over a 1,000 years. They lived in huts made out of straw. England was full of Saxons. An island called Holly Island was mostly full of monks. The monks prayed day and night. They lived in monastery. The Anglo Saxons hunted for animals.
    The rules for Anglo Saxons were if they threw you into the lake and you drowned you were innocent and if you did not drown you were the criminal. The other rule was you’d be hung and people would throw food on you e.g. throw eggs. And there were lots more rules.

    The Vikings invaded Britain. They decided to invade Holly Island. The reason why they chose to invade Holly Island was the monks were very week and they had lots of treasure. the Anglo Saxons were fighting but the monks and the Saxons died.

    Did the anglo Saxons have toys to play with.

  24. 0122011dh says:

    The Anglo-Saxons lived over 1000 years ago. The Anglo-Saxons came from countries like Denmark, Norway and Sweden. They were very vicious and violent people. Boys learned the skills of their fathers. They had a weird way of telling who did it like The Water Test. Here’s how The Water Test works . They tie you up and throw you into a river. If you sank, you were innocent . If you floated, you were accused guilty and you were put in the stocks or hung by the neck etc . Either way you died so it was best to follow the rules.
    I would like to know what people were like back then in 500AD . Were they nice? Were they nasty?
