Learn Some Old English from Textus Roffensis

Chris MonkDr Chris Monk (anglosaxonmonk.com) is a Medieval historian who has been helping the Cathedral staff unlock some of the secrets of Textus Roffensis.  Textus Roffensis is written in Old English and Latin. Fortunately, Dr Monk can read both languages very well.  

Old English is a fascinating language because it is so near and yet so far from our own modern English language.  Dr Monk has put together a beginners guide to reading and speaking Old English using Textus Roffensis as study material.

Have a go and let us know how you get on!
