Meet the Anglo Saxons
We often look back to the Anglo-Saxons as a way to help explain the world today. Those who lived in England between 400 and 1100c.e. are considered Anglo-Saxon and, having spoken the earliest forms of English, were responsible for helping to shape much of our modern world. Join DIG Magazine to explore this civilization, uncover the history-changing impact that they had, and understand why their culture was so influential on the rest of the world.
Starting with the clash between the Anglo-Saxons and the Romans, you’ll trace the battles, kings, major turning points in history, and influences of the Anglo-Saxons—and more importantly, discover the techniques and lessons from archeologists who uncovered and pieced together this important part of world history. Trace the origins of the Anglo-Saxon people, and examine how they traveled through the world. See how reconstructions of Anglo Saxton civilizations based on what has been uncovered by experts can teach us about life during this period of time. Full of photos and illustrations, charts, maps, and definitions to help make concepts easy to understand, this edition of DIG Magazine is an amazing primer into a prime period of world history.
