Old English translator

Post by Oxgirl36 » Thu Mar 08, 2018 8:33 pm

I came across this site today. I suspect it is still not as extensive as it could be but might be helpful for some ID finds with old English words.

That looks interesting and I for one will have a closer look.

On a similar tack (hopefully not off topic! - well it's all to do with research...), the internet is full of potential useful resources - I used to have a dictionary of old English place names, which in pre-detecting days I just used out of interest to see how the names of the various villages I came across originated - which I now appreciate gives a good indication of the earliest settlements in that area and what might be buried there. So I have been looking for this book again and came across this Oxford reference website - it has some place name reference books (including the one I used to have), archaeology, history and all sorts of weird and wonderful references online for a subscription of £80 a year - that's about £1.60 a week by my reckoning.

Worth an explore of the website if you have the time and the inclination :)
