Public To Help Create Largest Anglo-Saxon Archive

Posted by admin on Jul 11, 2010

An Oxford academic has challenged the public to help create the world’s largest archive of online material concerned with Anglo-Saxon England, after being inspired by the interest shown in last year’s discovery of the Staffordshire hoard.

The Archive, called Project Woruldhord (Old English for ‘world-hoard’), is being launched this month by Dr Stuart Lee, of the Faculty of English and Computing Services.

People across the world are being asked to upload pictures and videos of Anglo-Saxon buildings or monuments in their area; any stories, poems, writings, art or songs they have heard or composed which relate to the period; and even audio recordings and videos of historical re-enactments.
