England’s Greatest Gift – Beowulf [video]

SHARE

“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.
