 This week we are taking a closer look at one of our earliest forms of writing - the one that Anglo Saxons brought with them. We know a lot about life in Anglo Saxon times because it was written down and recorded and still exists today in ancient manuscripts.


This is what you need to do:

Read carefully through the slides or pdf document below.

- 'Have a go' at the activities on slides 2 & 3

- Try the 'Fascinating Facts' quiz on slide 5
