Anglo Saxon culture is a significant part of KS2 history and this is the second of four quizzes on the subject. Specifically it looks at what everyday life was like for ordinary Anglo Saxons living at the time.
What was ordinary living and everyday life like for the Anglo Saxons? Generally preferring not to settle within the old Roman cities, the Anglo Saxons built small towns near their centres of agriculture. In each town a main hall belonging to the leader or lord was in the centre, provided with a central hearth. This was the focal point of life for everyone living in the town or village. Anglo-Saxon lords were expected to entertain their followers with feasts.
