If you enjoy reading about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, especially about the grim and gory aspects of each era, this is the book for you! What sort of work could job-hunters in Anglo-Saxon and Viking Times expect to find? An Anglo-Saxon might become a monk, painstakingly copying out manuscripts by hand and fending off attacks from ferocious Viking invaders, or a nettle collector, pounding stinging nettles to release their flax-like fibres and boiling them to make a medicinal tea. What were the pay and conditions like for a cook or a charm-maker in Anglo-Saxon and Viking Times? Which were the most dangerous jobs and which the most high status? The book is illustrated throughout with photos of artefacts from the period from the Art Archive and complemented by quirky and humorous but historically accurate drawings by Alex Paterson.
