    Question Anglo-Saxon Diet?

    Do histrians know what the Anglo-Saxons diet was like when they began to arrive in the isles? How did it differ from the native population?

    That link doesn't describe the English diet different before 1066 than after. Since the colonial period, Angles have used far less local ingredients with traditional recipes, instead replacing them with imported tastes. Not only was there no real difference made by the Conquest, but whilst American crops and meats have now seemed normal, tea and curry have become seen as essential to ideas of British nationalism, despite their foreign natures.
