Beowulf & The Anglo-saxons (DVD)
Release Date: 02/27/07
Using 3-D animation, location footage, archive materials, and interviews, the Beowulf epic is examined in the light of the civilization that created it. It investigates the Anglo-Saxons' religious beliefs as well as their everyday life, and suggests that, old as the poem is, it may have roots in an even more ancient fertility cult. Extras include The Life of an Anglo-Saxon Warrior, Sam Newton on Sutton Hoo, and more.
