Mick Pearce (MCP) Breme fell at Hastings (16) RE: Breme fell at Hastings 12 Jun 19


The spoken part at the start is lines 313-314 from The Battle Of Maldon:

Hige sceal e heardra, heorte e cenre,
mod sceal e mare, e ure mgen l?tla.

(Thoughts must be harder, heart braver,
Courage must be greater, as our strength diminishes)


I can't make out all of the end line. It sounds like:

r ws of-slagen eall e ??? Angelcynnes folc

(then all the ?? English men were killed)
