BiblioFiles Episode #29: Introduction to Anglo-Saxon Literature

After a wild travel season where we had the joy of meeting so many of our wonderful listeners...BiblioFiles is back! This time Adam and Ian sit down for a more intimate conversation about one of Ian's great passions, Anglo-Saxon literature. A request from one of our listeners, we bring the origins of English storytelling to the BiblioFiles table. What heritage does our language pass down to us? What traditions spring from our English literary roots? Buckle your seatbelts, the Andrews are back in town!
