The Ruin (anonymous Anglo-Saxon)

Anonymous Anglo-Saxon poem

Film by Stuart Lee (including the reading and translation)

The anachronistic contrast between modern ruins and Anglo Saxon language and costume is extremely effective here. Kudos to Mr. Lee, and I hope more Anglo-Saxon poetry videos are in the offing.
