Description

The Origins of Beowulf and the Kingdom of East Anglia by Dr Sam Newton

Beginning with a look at the unique manuscript of Beowulf and the epic story it tells, we shall explore the indications that the poem may have been composed in the Wuffing kingdom of East Anglia during the eighth century, using older verse traditions reaching back to the sixth century and beyond. We shall also see how splendid account of the royal ship-funeral that forms the climax of its opening movement amplifies our understanding of the Sutton Hoo ship-burial.
