Oh. My. Goodness…
At University I fell head over heals in love with Old and Middle English.
My supervisor had a map on his wall which was titled thus: “
The Dark Ages Good Old Days”. I thought this was the most perfect way to sum up such a fascinating era.
I loved the sounds of the words, the illuminations in the manuscripts, the amazing art objects. All of it just amazed and delighted me.
And in another of those “many worlds colliding” ways, I don’t think I could love this beautifully made “Choose Your Own Adventure” way to translate and solve Old English Riddle 57 any more.
