About the Author

Tim Flight studied at Royal Holloway, University of London, and Magdalen College, Oxford, from which he obtained a doctorate in Anglo-Saxon Literature in 2016. Since then, he has been writing full time, and has contributed articles to History Today and BBC History Magazine, among many other publications. Basilisks and Beowulf is his first book.


"A bold and wide-ranging expedition into the wildest corners of the early medieval mind; Flight skillfully conjures the primal fears and ancient wonders that once lurked in England's shadowed groves and hollows." -- Thomas Williams, author of "Viking Britain: A History"
"Although he wears his learning lightly, Flight covers an impressive amount of ground to bring us his thoughtful, stimulating account of monsters in the early medieval world. Moving from Beowulf's historical context, through maps, wolves, dragons, devils, and the Grendelkin to present-day fears, Basilisks and Beowulf opens up a strange and yet hauntingly familiar world to anyone who has read the poem or any of its multitudinous offspring." -- Jennifer Neville, Royal Holloway, University of London
