Newly discovered "island"

A few days ago this blogger walked by a couple of students on the ground floor who were studying the Anglo Saxon epic Beowulf together. Now news is out about the discovery of a previously unknown Anglo Saxon "island." The Anglo Saxons have a fascinating history and have contributed much to the modern world. Epics of theirs like Beowulf and other literature are classics of the English language. We have many good books on them, and the article literature is extensive. Shown here is a glass counter from the site that may have originally been set in a bronze bowl.
