Paul Kingsnorth’s novel The Wake tells of the aftermath of the Battle of Hastings and is written in a contemporary version of AngloSaxon. Originally crowdfunded, it became a literary sensation, was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize and then actor Mark Rylance bought the film rights. In this event, Kingsnorth and Rylance discuss and read from the book with storyteller Martin Shaw, who has uncovered an Anglo-Saxon story believed to have not been told aloud for over a thousand years.
