- Kate Laity has images of some new Beowulf figurines. In a completely unrelated comment, I do not own any of these figurines, and Christmas is coming. Completely random and unrelated.
- Michael Drout has a great post about Skeat's method for teaching Old English vocabulary. I haven't posted on it because I thought it deserved some comment, but I haven't had the time to work up a really good response. Yeah, I know, it sounds boring, but it's interesting to anyone who's tried to learn Old English. Let me also mention Robert Stevick's A Firstbook of Old English, which is really different from everything else out there because he developed it for English-as-a-Second-Language learners (Japanese, if I remember right).
- Heavenfield has a post on the Northumbrian Ethnogenesis (the process by which the Northumbrians started thinking about themselves as an ethnicity). Even if you aren't interested in Anglo-Saxon history, this post is an interesting study in how a people started thinking of themselves as an "us."
- AND, last but certainly not least, Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog has been updated after a long hiatus! He has a great deal to say about Britney de Speres. You tell 'em, Geoff!

Clearing the Pipes of Links
Every so often, I fall so far behind on linking that I appear to ignore some things of great value. In a (no doubt futile) attempt to catch up a bit before a busy week, I give you links!
