Lit, Period #8: The Anglo-Saxons


Hwat! The BiblioFiles crew is bringing Lit, Period back in true book-nerd fashion with a conversation about the Anglo-Saxon period. Mead halls, man prices, and revenge are the fare of the day as we tackle this strange, far-away ancestor to the English literary tradition. With about only 30,000 lines of extant material to discuss, this shouldn’t be too difficult!
