The Story Hoard Book

The world of the Anglo-Saxons was rich in poems, riddles and stories such as ‘Beowulf.’ Following on from this tradition, members of the Kings Norton Writing Group, metal detectorists, students of English as a second language and members of the general public worked with writer Helen Cross to create a book of original poetry, stories and personal reflections.
