Saxons are used to training with weapons once very small. The Saxons did not have many luxuries back then unlike the Romans. They had a very barbaric culture back then, which was very common in the medieval ages.
Back then, when the Saxons fought, they fought separately each for his own. They were all well trained with the sword, but since they did not fight in order, the Romans took over the Saxons.
The Saxons used the caste system. The caste system is a system of which continues in posterity. The priests are the highest, then the nobles. Peasants, slaves, and the untouchables follow. Once you were born in one of the families, you had to stay the same level in the caste system as your parents were. While the Priests were treated very well, the untouchables were treated horribly.
The Saxons were also pagans, but like many other Germanic tribes, they also converted to Christianity.
Saxons were very different than the Romans. The Romans indulged in many luxuries and fought in order while the Saxons did not have many luxuries and had no order when fighting.
