Hi, I am Beowulf (Harry really) and am studying Anglo Saxon history, culture, language, etc. with a view to doing it at University. I was put on to this great subject by my reading of The Lord of the Rings many years ago which extended my knowledge from merely my Penguin book of Norse sagas to something much greater and all consuming. Currently doing A-levels in English, History, Latin, and German. My English coursework is on landscape in The Lord of the Rings, my research for which brought me here. If anyone could direct me to any good articles on this topic I would be grateful.
Ic grete eow ealle. I greet you all.
wow, that sounds sooo interesting, I love languages (esp. old german and old enlish, for they were so similar...). I'm really impressed, respect.
you're working on landscapes in lotr??? I'm even more impressed...
you could take a look at Message Board => Places, maybe there are some useful threads for you. I hope so...
but don't forget to visit the other sections, too...
so, I hope you'll enjoy your time at pt, and to see you around!
Ich gr’’e dich. I greet you.

Welcome tp Planet-Tolkien Beowulf, I hope you enjory your stay here. If you have any questions just ask.
I have found the late Karen Wynn Fonstad's revised edition of The Atlas of Middle-earth
provided much insight. Also Hooray! Hooray! our Art Gallery (the link is in the menu on the left) has been reimplemented and our Maps are now available for viewing once again.
Greetings, Beowulf! I'm very interested in the psychological landscape of Middle-Earth. I will let you know what I find. Be sure to look into all of the artifacts scattered through Middle-Earth, and how this adds to the depth and dimension of the writing, making it believable, pulling us through history and time. Very impressive.
are u a ffan of beowulf i love that book
It really looks like the Grendel took down Beowulf. Another newbie bites the dust.
