But why do we call these animals different names when we prepare them for a meal? The answer is the Norman Conquest of Britain in 1066. And many others related to food. When animals were in the stable or on the farm, they kept their Old English names: pig, cow, sheep and calf. On several websites, word experts claim that this change shows a class difference between the Anglo-Saxons and the French in Britain at the time of the conquest. Because the lower-class Anglo-Saxons were the hunters, they used the Old English names for animals.
