Excerpt from Sidelights on Teutonic History During the Migration Period: Being Studies From Beowulf and Other Old English Poems

The following chapters are the outcome of two periods of study undertaken during the tenure of research scholarships awarded by Girton College, and form an attempt to discover the amount of historical truth underlying the allusions to persons and events in the Old English heroic poems.

The essay deals with an aspect of these poems, which has not, so far as I know, been treated systematically by anyone who has previously written on the subject. Thus, in the absence of any model, I have had to work on independent lines, especially as regards the grouping and arrangement of different traditions, and the method of discussion followed in the several chapters. The actual arrangement has been adopted for convenience of discussion, according to the nationality of the persons concerned, except in cases where a particular section forms a complete epic narrative with a personal (as opposed to a national) interest of its own: in these cases the tradition has been discussed under the heading of the poem in which it is contained, or that of the character round whom the narrative centres.

Book Description:

Originally published in 1911, this book attempts to discover the amount of historical truth underlying the allusions to persons and events in Old English heroic poetry. Clarke investigates what certain allusions in poems such as Beowulf and Widsith can tell us of the Teutonic migrations to Britain between the fourth and sixth centuries.
