The Empty Throne

Here is a quick lesson for you to use.  It is a reading excerpt from Bernard Cornwell's book, The Empty Throne.  Cornwell is known for his historical fiction and this book is from the series dealing with Uthred, made famous in the Netflix series.

This particular excerpt has him talking about Beowulf from a contemporary perspective.

Use this for test prep or if you just need some more at home work during this shut down. 

If you are into all that Anglo-Saxon jazz, I highly recommend this series.  Pick up the first book, The Last Kingodm, and read it here:

Or watch The Last Kingdom series on Netflix.  It is not a completely spot on retelling, but it is still a good one.
