"Beowulf" survives in a single medieval manuscript, housed at the British Library in London. The manuscript bears no date. Some scholars have suggested that the manuscript was made at the end of the 10th century, others in the early decades of the eleventh. The most likely time for "Beowulf" to have been copied is the early 11th century, which makes the manuscript approximately 1,000 years old.
