5/100 Days of Books -Anglo-Saxon and Coffee-

My son’s new project: Learning Anglo-Saxon. Why not?

“Anglo-Saxon is also referred to as Old English, which is the name you should prefer if you want to illustrate the continuity of our language from Old to Middle to Modern English. Old English was the language of Alfred, Middle English was the language of Chaucer, and Modern English is the language of you, and sometimes me.” Douglas Wilson (from the Introduction)

Soli Deo Gloria
