Anglo Saxon farming

All Anglo Saxon farming systems were integrated. Livestock and arable farming were indispensable to one another; arable crops depended on the manure and labour of animals which in turn fed on the products of arable land as well as that lying fallow. During the Anglo Saxon period the landscape and food production of lowland Britain was in large measure transformed. By the end of the period something recognisable as “traditional English farming” had started and villages such as East Meon had been founded.

East Meon at the time of the Domesday Book, as envisaged by historians. In Saxon times it was a minster, an important administrative centre.
