About Woruldhord

Project Woruldhord is hosted by the University of Oxford, based at the University's Computing Services. Woruldhord was assisted by the JISC-funded RunCoCo project.

The Project Director was Dr Stuart Lee who teaches Old English at Oxford and is also the Director of Computing Systems and Services. He is a HEA National Teaching Fellow, and was also Project Director on the First World War Poetry Digital Archive and the Great War Archive.

The Research Officers on the project were Dr Anna Caughey and Mr Tom Birkett. Dr Caughey teaches Old English and Middle English at Keble College, Oxford. She recently completed her DPhil on knighthood and kingship in late medieval Scotland, and also works on Malory, chivalry studies and medieval romance. Mr Birkett is writing his D.Phil. on the representation of the runic script in Old English and Old Norse literature, with particular reference to material and textual culture. His research and teaching interests include Anglo-Saxon engagement with the past, the relationship between Old English and Norse literature, the riddle tradition, textual culture, and the reception of Old Norse literature and myth. He is based at St Cross College.

This is also a living collection. If you have anything you would like to add to it simply go to the 'Add to the Collection' page, register, and follow the steps for contributing a new item.
