A major part of KS2 history is about the Anglo Saxon culture in Britain. This is the last of four quizzes on the subject and it looks in particular at Anglo Saxon Kingdoms and Kings.
The Anglo Saxons conquered the southern part of Great Britain after the Romans had departed. Angles, Saxons and Jutes then settled and their leaders founded their own kingdoms. The Anglo Saxons replaced Celtic culture and society in much of southern and central Britain and the Old English language became the common tongue. After the conquest the Anglo Saxon kingdoms fought with one another for dominance. They were finally united as the country of England when Alfred the Great and his sons defeated the Vikings who had invaded the northern and eastern lands. Then, in 1066, the Normans invaded and William the Conqueror became the new king.
Take this test to see what you know about the Anglo Saxon kings, kingdoms and culture in Britain.
