I am a bad blogger. It’s okay, I admit it. I have spent the last four days catching up Beowulf translation, have procrastinated horribly, and utterly failed to prepare a post for today. It is now one in the morning, and I have work early tomorrow as well as a full day of study and writing planned. Hopefully I will have a real medieval post -one I have had planned for a fortnight- by the end of the day.

I say hopefully, because I also want to show this research to my honours supervisor on Tuesday morning, so we may discuss it Wednesday. It would be rather nice.

In the meantime, enjoy this rather awful documentary about a savage group of barbarian mercenaries. Hungry for power, fiercely pagan, their culture thrives on treachery…

…they are called the SAXONS.
