How did England change during the settlement of the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings?

Our Autumn curriculum driver is History. This unit looks at the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings and their achievements from 410 CE to 1066 CE. The first lessons explore life in England after the fall of the Roman Empire and the reasons why the Anglo-Saxons travelled to England’s shores and decided to settle. This moves on to finding out how England was ruled during the settlement of the Anglo-Saxons and how they kept control of the 7 different kingdoms across the land. It finishes with a look at who the Vikings were, why they carried out raids in England and how their arrival impacted the political and social hierarchy of the time.
