We’re bringing it back, folks! It’s time to play Seven Medieval Words and this time, it’s pandemic themed! That’s right, Doc has seven Old English words and Nina has to guess their modern English translation. Last time they played, her score was a humiliating 1/7. Think she can do better this time?
As always, Pop Medievalists are invited to play along too! Can you can get the full seven?
The words are: laecehus, adl, onflyge, grima, lacnung, angbreost, hraecca

The last time Doc and Nina played a game, it ended in Doc’s humiliating loss! Now, he’s out for blood with a game of “Seven Medieval Words (We Should Bring Back Today).” He’ll give Nina seven Old English words and let her guess the definitions. Can Nina get four out of seven correct, or will Doc get his revenge? Plus, Nina schools Doc on the deeply upsetting modern English translation of a modern German word.
