This book is about:
"The Angles and the Saxons came to Britain in 450 CE. They were farmers or craftsmen.

Anglo-Saxons wore tunics. Wealthy men carried a beautiful sword and wealthy women had silk or fabulous jewellery.

Some Anglo-Saxons prayed to gods such as Tiw the god of War (from where we get the word Tuesday); Woden leader of the gods (Wednesday); Thor god of thunder (Thursday) and Frija, Woden's wife (Friday).

Eostre was an Anglo-Saxon goddess from where we get the word Easter. She brought flowers and leaves to the trees in Spring.

St. Augustine brought Christianity to the Anglo-Saxons and built a monastery in Canterbury.

The Vikings came in 700CE and invaded England. In 1066, the Normans came and took over England. "

My favourite part of the book is
"Learning that Anglo-Saxons had their belonging buried with them when they died in case they neede them in the next life. "

I would also like to say
"When the Normans arrived, William the Conqueror was King of England and had defeated Harold Godwin in the Battle of Hastings. "

The main characters are
"The Anglo-Saxons."
