Created sometime between 975-1025 and spanning over 3000 lines, Beowulf is one of the most important works in Old English. It tells the story of the eponymous hero as he kills monsters, conquers kingdoms and battles dragons. In this talk, BBC broadcaster and Oxford Medievalist Dr Janina Ramirez tells the fascinating history of the epic poem, Beowulf.
