2: A lords life. | Society was divided into several social classes, which might vary from place to place. At the top was the king. .The king who did not provide land, slaves, or plunder might wake up dead one fine morning. | Below the king there were two levels of freemen, the upper class thanes and the lower class corals. The division between the two was strictly in terms of land owned. Aside from the ownership of land, a ceorl could actually be a richer man than the thane.
3: Below the thanes and ceorls were the slaves. Slavery was one of the biggest commercial enterprises of Dark Age life, and much depended on this involuntary labor force.
