Not-So-Gentle Viewer: Grendel's Ambush

Benjamin Bagby reenacts how Beowulf (which, after all, was an oral tradition long before it was written down and long long before it was made into a movie with Angelina Jolie) may have been performed.  It's pretty amazing how much language can change in 1000-1300 years.

(And let me just say that I love my Facebook friends, since one of them posted this on his wall.)
