Department Section Description: 

This is the first in a three-course sequence aimed at reading and understanding Old English, the language of the Anglo-Saxons (the English between 449 and 1066). In this first term of Old English we will concentrate on bringing reading skills up to speed, so you will be able to read Old English literature (taught in later terms of the course) with some fluency. Thus the focus of this term will be learning the language, although we will also read some interesting texts (wisdom-literature, riddles, etc.) and acquire some background in Anglo-Saxon history and culture.
