The Anglo-Saxons


The Anglo-Saxons, while seemingly a separate cultural group, from the Norse, have several things in common with their northern brothers. Herein you will find some interesting research links and texts explaining this intriguing people, and you will see, the Saxons, particularly, are not the marauding barbarians many an Arthurian Novel/movie makes them out to be! Enjoy, and remember, as always, this section will grow, as we find more of interest, to share.
