Beowulf: 2 Disc Box Set

Beowulf & The Anglo-Saxons

Miraculously preserved over the centuries, its artistic importance was unrecognized until an essay by J.R.R. Tolkien (The Lord of The Rings) revelated its unity and multi-dimensional structure. Beowulf is now regarded as the most important manuscript the Anglo-Saxons have handed down to us, of immense linguistic as well as poetic value.

This program sets out to trace the origins of the tribes that brought this epic into being, the war-like Norsemen who were to conquer and settle regions of a more clement and fertile island that would become known as England. Using 3-D animation, location footage, archive materials and interviews, the Beowulf epic is examined in the light of the civilization that created it.

Life In The Age Of Beowulf

An Exploration into Life at the Time of the Anglo-Saxon Myth of Men and Monsters

West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village is set in 125 acres. Here in the 1960s and 1970s a series of archaeological digs revealed the remains of a substantial settlement of over seventy houses of which eight have been reconstructed.

The earliest remains, going back as far as 420 B.C., coincide with the period during which the Roman legions withdrew from Britain, leaving it open to the Anglo-Saxon invasions. The village was settled until 650 A.D., the age of Beowulf, when the poem was composed and recited by the bards.
