H2001: Riddling in Anglo-Saxon England in Splash Spring 16 (Apr. 02, 2016)
Come exercise your powers of thought and imagination as we enjoy a selection of Anglo-Saxon riddles, while learning some foundations of reading Old English.

H1780: Words Well Exchanged: an Introduction to Old English in Splash Fall 15 (Nov. 14, 2015)
“Wise men should exchange words,” notes Anglo-Saxon lore. In this class, we will listen in on those witty conversations, from the classroom to the battlefield in Anglo-Saxon England. We begin with a fun crash course in the Old English language, sprinkled with group exercises for practice. We then move on to read selections from Old English texts — including Aelfric’s 'Colloquy' (a school text for Anglo Saxon children), Old English Riddles, and passages of heroic poetry — some in the original and some in translation. Beginners are welcome! Glossaries and translations will be provided.
