The Anglo-Saxons

The Anglo Saxons were farmers and warriors. Some of the hardest work was done when ploughing the fields (see picture above), before sowing the seeds. This a usually done with a piece of equipment called a ‘plough’.

The plough digs a ‘furrow’ (a line in the soil to plant seeds in) turns over the soil, bringing the best soil to the top buries weeds and the remains of the last crop so they can rot and fertilize it aerates the soil, making pockets to hold water better.Harvest Time (from an Anglo-Saxon manuscript) - © Nash Ford Publishing
