Beowulf and the Old English Heroic Age.
Dr Sam Newton (Director, Wuffing Education)
Beowulf is the poetic masterpiece that forms the precedent for literary art in the English language, but it is also a primary work of history. It was probably composed during the eighth century, using older verse traditions reaching back to Scandinavia in the sixth century and beyond. Through these and related texts we can retrieve something of the almost lost continent of the English pre-history.
