This review is from: Anglo-Saxon Riddles (Paperback)
I have been fascinated by the Anglo-Saxons ever since I first saw the Sutton Hoo helmet. It is such an iconic and enigmatic object that one can't help but imagine what the people who created it were like. What was their outlook on life? What made them laugh? What made them cry? This book of riddles is a window into the Anglo-Saxon mind. The answers to the riddles range from everyday objects through to big concepts such as Creation. The riddles are presented in both Old English and Modern English which makes them accessible to both the casual reader and the student of Old English alike. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable book. Highly recommended.
