Website-wide Edits


A quick announcement that we are in the process of editing all content from the old website to replace the term "Anglo-Saxon" with "early medieval." We are doing this partly because of important discussions within the field of early medieval studies that are informed by scholars working on race and racism (you can read more about that here), and partly because this new website will include content with a wider scope, including riddle traditions that circulated in different parts of Europe.
