A major theme in KS2 history is the Anglo Saxon culture. This is the first of four quizzes on the subject focussing in particular on the Germanic invaders of Britain in the early Middle tribes - Angle, Saxon and Jute.
The Anglo Saxon and Jute invaders were Germanic peoples who raided Britain after the Romans had left. Eventually they settled and farmed the land. They were comprised of three Germanic tribes - the Angles from Angeln (in modern Germany), the Saxons from Lower Saxony in Germany, and the Jutes, possibly from the Jutland peninsula (in modern Denmark). These tribes formed new kingdoms in Britain such as East Anglia, Mercia, Northumbria, Wessex, Sussex, Essex and other minor kingdoms. These were all merged together in the 10th Century and became the new nation of England.
