Beowulf And Anglo Saxon Values

189 Words1 Page
The Anglo - Saxon Culture valued war, loyalty, honor, and riches. The American values are not the same as the Anglo - Saxon values. The Modern day values focus more on religion and equality.

Shild was an abandoned child, who valued honor and riches to become a King. He was a strong, and powerful leader, “he made slaves of soldiers from every Land, crowds of captives”. The more slaves he had the more power he gained. He ruled all lands and took his soldiers on boats. The battles you win, lead to honor and respect, and then power and riches. Shild, “changed his fate” also stated in the book Beowulf, “There was a brave King! And he Gave them more than his glory, Concieved a son for the Danes, a new leader allowed them by the grace of God.”
