Hild Extras

This blog has moved. My blog now lives here: http://gemaecce.com/

Hild was real. She was born fourteen hundred years ago in Anglo-Saxon England. Everything we know about her comes from the Venerable Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English Nation, the foundational text of English history. Of that work, a scant five pages refer to Hild. You can read those, translated by Professor Roy M. Liuzza here (Broadview Anthology of British Literature, Vol. 1, Peterborough, ON: Broadview Press, 2006; hosted with permission of the translator).

Hild has many extras, such as a map, glossary, family tree, and an Author's Note which includes a pronunciation guide. (Not in the book: a translation of Bede's take on Hild, and the dramatis personae*, which are exclusive here.)

However, as it's tricky on some devices to flip back and forth between narrative and extras, you might find it useful to download the following to refer to as you go:
I've assembled some Hild-related videos: interviews, question-and-answer session, readings, and bookseller reviews. Enjoy.

This is Hild-related fan art and some cat pictures (plus one dog). Because, hey, everyone likes cat pictures.
* I cobbled this together as a favour for a reader's elderly mum. It's a spreadsheet, nothing fancy.
