Beowulf & Grendel: The Truth Behind England's Oldest Legend

Beowulf & Grendel: The Truth Behind England's Oldest Legend - John Grigsby Had I realised that Grigsby was associated with Graham Hancock and his "unconventional" ideas about an ancient advanced civilization, I probably would not have bought this book. But I didn't, so I did! And I'm glad I did, because it was a very absorbing read.While not being convinced by all of his conclusions about the origins of the Beowulf story, there is a lot of interesting background and evocation of the Anglo-Saxon period. Whether you agree with the author's analysis or not, if you are interested in Beowulf, I think you would find this book worthy of a little of your time.
