Read full description of the books:
Layamon, or Lawman was a poet of the early 13th century, whose Brut (c. 1215) is a history of England in verse written in a form of Middle English. Layamon's poem is also remarkable for its abundant Anglo-Saxon vocabulary. Many scholars believe the language of the poem to be intentionally archaised, rather than indicative of the Middle English commonly written and spoken during Layamon's lifetime. Layamon describes himself in his poem as a priest, living at Areley Kings in Worcestershire.
