Astronomy in Anglo-Saxon England
I’ve done a podcast for the 365 Days of Astronomy project (part of the International Year of Astronomy) on astronomy in Anglo-Saxon England. You can download it or read the script here.
The 365 Days of Astronomy is a great podcast. If you’re interested in astronomy at all, you’ll find the wide assortment of topics covered by the daily ten-minute podcast to be fascinating. (Although it has little to do with word origins or language.)
I’ve also done a podcast on Chaucer’s Treatise on the Astrolabe. That’s slated as a backup podcast, so I’m not sure when it will hit the net.
