Abstract

This chapter examines some aspects of the working and enslaved households at Faccombe Netherton, Hampshire, in the late Anglo-Saxon period. Using historical and material evidence, the paper explores the enslaved community as a group with their own roles, duties, specialisations and agency, and also the ‘riding household’ of rædmen and the culture or business of horse-breeding that may have taken place here, or at another estate belonging to the owner Wynflæd. Overall, using interdisciplinary and microhistorical approaches, the chapter seeks to restore aspects of agency and lived experiences to the working and enslaved communities at elite Anglo-Saxon estates in the 10th and 11th centuries.
