Staffordshire Hoard: Gold fragments found in Hammerwich, from the BBC
Appearing in the June 2011 edition of Poetry magazine, trans. Robert Hasenfratz and V. Penelope Pellizon.
This is fabulous, to see Cynewulf (one of the few Anglo-Saxon poets whose name we know) appearing in the pages of a modern poetry magazine! Hasenfratz and Pellizon discuss their choices as translators here.
You can read a transcription of the poem from the Vercelli book here, but it unfortunately does not reproduce the runes, instead giving the name of the rune in-text in such a way that if you did not know better, you wouldn’t know there was anything unusual about these words.
…by two members of the Eastbourne District Metal Detecting Club: Bob White and Cliff Smith. The skeletons of a man and two women were accompanied by weapons and jewelry, among other artifacts.
