BC: This is the life of the Anglo Saxons.. THE END!
FC: Free Time and Entertainment
1: The Anglo-Saxons were pagans when they came to Britain. They worshipped gods of nature and held springs, wells, rocks, and trees in reverence.
2: At feasts the most common entertainment was the harp, which was also used in church music. In addition to the harp, scenes of juggling balls and knives have been found illustrating books of the period.
3: The robe or tunic gathered at the waist was the common garment for a man, completed by hose and soft shoes. The usual materials were linen and woolens, the more expensive outfits being marked by colourful dyes and exotic borders.
4: Travel was not uncommon, and the main trade routes, often along the old Roman roads, were used frequently. Travellers were advised to shout, blow horns, and make lots of noise. Otherwise any strangers were assumed to be outlaws, and could be killed out of hand.
