Geography – location of Anglo-Saxon kingdoms:

When the Anglo-Saxons invaded Britain, they split up some of the land into 7 different kingdoms, each with their own king!

  1. Have a look at the top of this website and video to find out about how many kingdoms there were and what they were called: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zxsbcdm/articles/zqrc9j6

2. Can you label the seven kingdoms of Anglo-Saxon Britain? Use the website or the internet to help you.

3. Can you answer these questions using the points of a compass? Use your labelled map to help you!

  • Is East Anglia in the north or east of the country?
  • Is Northumbria in the north or south of the country?
  • Is Kent in the northwest or the southeast of the country?
  • Is Wessex in the southwest or northeast of the country?

Challenge: Can you find out any of the name of the kings for each kingdom?
