Lõik failist

Early Anglo- Saxon buildings in Britain were generally simple , constructed
mainly using timber with thatch for roofing. The Anglo- Saxons built small towns near their centres of agriculture . In each town, a main
hall was in the centre . The architectural character of Anglo-Saxon
ecclesiastical buildings range from Coptic influenced architecture in
the early period ; basilica influenced Romanesque architecture; and in
the later Anglo-Saxon period, an architecture characterised by pilaster -strips, blank arcading, baluster shafts and triangular
headed openings.
There are few remains of Anglo-Saxon architecture, with no secular work remaining above ground . All surviving churches, except one
timber church, are built of stone or brick and in some cases show evidence of re-used Roman work.
Anglo-Saxon art is mainly known today through illuminated
manuscripts. Although they are the most well known to have survived.
Perhaps the best known piece of Anglo-Saxon art is the Bayeux Tapestry which was commissioned by a Norman patron from English artists working in the traditional Anglo-Saxon style. The most common
example of Anglo-Saxon art is coins, with thousands of examples
extant. Anglo-Saxon artists also worked in fresco , ivory, stone
carving, metalwork and enamel, but few of these pieces had survived.
Anglo-Saxon literary works include genres such as epic poetry ,
hagiography, sermons, Bible translations, legal works, chronicles,
riddles, and others . The most famous works from this period include

The Saxons & Vikings

Gildas, the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, saints' lives, poetry, archaelogical findings and place- name studies. British landlords ruled small, unstable kingdoms and continued some Roman traditions of governance. In the mid-5th cent, Vertigern, a British leader, hired Germanic mercenaries to help defend against peoples of the north (Picts & Scots). In the end they revolted & the process of invasion and settlement began. The first Saxon ,,kings" were Hengist & Horsa in Kent, Aelle in Sussex, Cerdic / Cynric in Wessex. So the first ,,English" became mainly from Northern Germany & Denmark. The resistance of the Celts was long. They were free at the time, not like other Roman provinces on the Continent. Around 500, the Britons seem to have won several victories. One of their leaders was Ambrosius Aurelianus and one of their victories was at the place called Mount Badon. The

Literary analyses of Beowulf

The Literary Analyses of "Beowulf" "Beowulf" is a heroic epic that was written down around 1000 AD in Old English. The poem's composition, however, is considered to date back to about 700 AD, meaning that it is from the Anglo-Saxon literary period. The epic was most probably created by scop(s) who composed it for entertainment and in praise of their master. Over the three centuries the epic was being changed and adapted by them, as it was inherited by word of mouth. The events occurring in the poem are set in Southern Scandinavia, Geatland and Denmark, in the fifth and sixth centuries. It should be observed that the narrative is written in the third person point of view and the narrator is omniscient. The subject matters in this poem are restricted to war and death. This was their present and therefore interesting to them as they could identify with the characters. The restricted variety of themes, flat characters and confrontation
