Anglo-Saxon Outing to the Potteries Museum

11227651_932604240145792_304864621495947166_oWe welcomed new level four students to our English and Creative Writing courses with a trip to the Potteries Museum, Hanley, where Dr. Melanie Ebdon gave us a thrilling reading of Beowulf in Anglo-Saxon in an atmospherically reconstructed mead-hall, (contemporaneous to the writing of this poem)  and artefacts from the Staffordshire Hoard.

The trip celebrated the end of a busy welcome week, which also included a student learning conference. Staff and students from English and Creative Writing joined colleagues and peers from History and Sociology.
