Only one medieval manuscript of the Old English epic Beowulf is known to exist. Seamus Heaney renders the first lines of the stanza pictured here: “Then it fell to Beow to keep the forts. He was well regarded and ruled the Danes for a long time after his father took leave of his life on earth.” — © British Library Board (Cotton MS Vitellius A.XV, f.132)
