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.
