Neo Druidism
Neo Saxonism, also sometimes coupled with Neo Druidism and the New Age Movements, is a cultural movement centred around the revival of Anglo-Saxon culture and society. Fuelled by the Celtic Revivals in Cornwall in the early 20th century, and later in the 1980's and 1990's, Neo Saxonism follows some of the beliefs of the ancient anglo-saxons who ruled the ancient kingdom of wessex in the 10th century. Neo Saxon's main beliefs are the equality of women, being one with nature, the belief in paganism or druidism, however some are atheists, and little use of modern technology however many have an exception to this. Many Neo Saxons support the use of the Wessen Language, and many speak it. 

Most Neo Saxon's are centred around the Somerset town of Glastonbury, or Stonehenge in Wiltshire. There are estimated to be between 500 and 2,000 Neo Saxons in Wessex and Cornwall as of 2013. It is recognised as a minority culture in Wessex and Cornwall.
