The Sigurd Portal - Carved doorposts of the medieval stave church at Hylestad, Setesdal, Norway. Sigurd the Volsung killing the dragon Fafnir (piercing his heart). Here, Fafnir is depicted as a serpent. Sigurd is riding his horse Grami.
Reading Beowulf gets tricky with all the different tribe names getting thrown around. Looking at a map with locations of respective tribes could really put things into a better perspective for students!
Although I haven't actually read through this entire helmet, it is supposed to be the entire Beowulf text condensed onto a single sheet of paper. While this isn't very useful, it is pretty cool for whoever figured it out and put it together.
This is a manuscript of the Beowulf epic, showing the language it was written in and the characters. The tale itself has many Anglo-Saxon cultural elements in it, and the letters in which it is written are no exception.
