The History of English in 10 Minutes – OU animation

I’m pleased to have found this amusing summary of the history of English, re-tweeted by The Book Bench, on twitter. It is 11:20 long, so get a cup of tea and settle in for a bit of an educational session from the OU.

(And if you want a much longer version, in book form, there’s alway Melvyn Bragg’s The Adventure of English.)
