The Modern Scholar: The Anglo-Saxon World

Had the Angles and Saxons not purposefully migrated to the isles of the Britons and brought with them their already-well-developed use of language, Angelina Jolie may never have appeared in the movie Beowulf.
Professor Michael D.C. Drout is at his best when lecturing on the fascinating history, language, and societal adaptations of the Anglo-Saxons. He not only presents their storytelling abilities using their own words; he does so in their own voice - the incredibly melodious Old English.

A window in a world now long gone

Witty, engaging and with humour Michael Drout presents this lecture about Anglo Saxon culture from the beginning in about 500 AD to the end in 1066. In addition the influences of the Anglo Saxon culture up to the modern times are presented and there is more than one aha - moment in the course of the presentation. Recommended to anyone who is interested in history, especially if you ever wondered what influences language does have.
