The first page of my website will propose a new location for Heorot based upon clues within the poem. I believe that the swan road, whale road, gannet’s bath, salt sea and sea street refer to specific locations are not simply metaphors for the sea.

I am a (very) mature student of british history, primarily interested in the Anglo-Saxon period, especially the ages that are still dark, 400-600AD. I am also interested in the use (and misuse) of science in archaeology and will cover some aspects of this in later posts.
