Summary
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?
