Some Middle English fun

Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog

A medieval scholar has fun with a blog… Read Geoffrey's advice column, follow the progress of the 'flayme werre' between him and John Gowere, and generally have a hoot! (You can even buy the t-shirts.)

Fyghten togeder we dide, this valet and ich, in Rethel-toune whanne the Frensshe layde waste to yt to letten the Prince Noir from crossinge, and in the melee we were scatterede from the hoste, and we two dide runne like eye makeupe on a televangelistes wyf.

(Not, I should warn, for those lacking a sense of humour.)
