About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1911, this book attempts to discover the amount of historical truth underlying the allusions to persons and events in Old English heroic poetry. Clarke investigates what certain allusions in poems such as Beowulf and Widsith can tell us of the Teutonic migrations to Britain between the fourth and sixth centuries. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Old English and Anglo-Saxon literature.
