This page was put together for the use of the graduate students in English 503 at Washington State University in the Fall semester of 1996, and now serves as the virtual "command post" for all my students reading Anglo-Saxon texts. It's not restricted to our students, however, so anyone happening upon this page should feel free to have a look and follow the links to some wonderful sites. There's nothing very original here outside of my old slides (see "Images from Anglo-Saxon England" at the bottom of this page); if you find them useful somehow, please drop me a line before reproducing them. And while I'm on that subject: the "Anglo-Saxon clip art" reproduced on this page is by Eva Wilson, Early Medieval Designs from Britain for Artists and Craftspeople, Dover Books, 1983.

Lastly, Prof. Daniel Donoghue had produced up a facsinating page for his OE course, but since Harvard has now seen fit to restrict access, I had to remove the link.
