Great Article and Video celebrating Old English and the DOE

Please admire CMS Faculty Rob Getz and Stephen Pelle explaining, with much humour, the beauty of Old English and celebrating the advance of the Dictionary of Old English to the letter H. You can read about them in an article on CBC News. They were first celebrated in another article, this one in the University of Toronto Magazine. On either site, watch the great video!
