England’s Greatest Gift – Beowulf

“England’s greatest gift to the world”. That’s some claim, and famed historian Michael Wood makes it for Beowuf – England’s oldest poem.

This video introduces  “Beowulf,” the epic poem of the Anglo-Saxons.  From a culture which didn’t write things down, it is priceless. The manuscript – written by an ancient monk – survived the Great Fire of London by a miracle:  One copy only, and it is without doubt one of our nation’s greatest treasures.

Whether English blood courses through your veins, or whether you simply speak the language, Beowulf will delight and move you. Give it a try!

While we have your attention, we would like to remind you of our Emergency Ukraine Appeal

While BILLIONS of Dollars pours into western Ukraine, the beleaguered people in the east have been forgotten and abandoned to starve or freeze to death. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN! In conjunction with our brethren on the ground in the area I am asking you to dig deep and send your immediate financial support (as best you can) to our EMERGENCY UKRAINE WAR APPEAL!
