The Deorhord

An Old English Bestiary

Hana Videen

The dēor (‘animals’ in Old English) featured in this bestiary range from the real (gange-wæfre, ‘walker-weaver’ or ‘spider’ nowadays) to the mythical and extraordinary (dragons and water-monsters). Blending etymology, folklore and history, Hana Videen explores the place these creatures held in medieval lives and literature, the reputation they developed and what they came to symbolize.
