Much of the documentary information about the AngloSaxon period deals with the lives of influential men as this was a period of colonisation, conflict and consolidation. Notwithstanding this, women can be found within the domestic, religious and political spheres. This workshop demonstrates how this period can also be used to look at the lives of women in their homes and in positions of power. It provides some practical activities to investigate life for women in Anglo-Saxon England.
