I'm leafing over the beginning of the Buccmaster's story, and the language is just so great. Here's a bit below: a fugol is a bird, eages are eyes, Ecceard a Gerefa (local official) and geburs are peasant farmers. The rest you might catch just by reading aloud.see i had cnawan yfel was cuman when i seen this fugol glidan ofera great blaec fugol it was not of these lands it flown slow ofer the ham one daeg at the time of first ploughan. its necc was long its eages afyr and on the end of its fethra was a mans fingors all this i seen clere this was a fugol of deofuls. in stillness it cum and slow so none may miss it or what it had for us. this was eosturmonth in the year when all was broc.
