Welcome Noble Thanes!!


Welcome, worthy medieval thanes! You have voyaged from

far off distant lands. Now you must rest a while. Come lay

down your heavy traveling harnesses and join us in our renowned

mead hall. Stay with us for the night until tomorrow

morning breaks when you will continue your travels to seek out that which

you are so eager to find. Come sit with us, drink our mead and be merry.

We have for you and your companions many lovely and friendly maidens who are ready

for your choosing. Be not afraid, “for here each earl is true to the other, mild in heart,

loyal to his liege-lord” (Beowulf, p. 91).
