As part of our Anglo Saxons unit, we have been re-enacting the deal between King Vortigern and the first Angle & Saxon tribe leaders. This deal resulted in Kent being given in return for the tribe leader’s daughter…. But it did not end there. The Angles, Saxons & Jutes wanted more land… and there was only one way to take it! This is how England got its name… It was once “Angle Land”.
