So the “Travels of Ohthere” read basically like a D&D adventure. Mysterious man of means shows up at the royal court bearing a large stash of exotic loot and wild tales of distant lands and uncanny men and beasts.

Click the link to here my fucked-up Old English reading of the intro to Ohthere’s debriefing before Aelfred, plus a short, sloppy translation, and an even sloppier explanation of why I like this particular tale. I know I messed up some of my pronounciations, and keep saying “sa Westsæ” rather than “þa Westsæ”
