While this is a website dedicated to Old English, books are still an important resource (yes, even on a Kindle.) Here are some of my favorite texts to work with, from the illustrious Peter Baker to the ever complex Alistair Campbell. If they’re too pricey to purchase yourself, ask your local library for help.

A Guide to Old English by Bruce Mitchell & Fred Robinson

Introduction to Old English by Peter S. Baker

Old English Grammar by Alistair Campbell

Teach Yourself Old English by Mark Atherton


The Lindisfarne Gospels: Gospel of St Matthew the Evangelist, initial page. Lindisfarne, late 7th or early 8th century.
