Those Lectures treat of the Anglo-Saxon remains in the British Museum, and the object in them was to build up from those remains a history of our remote forefathers as perfectly distinct from the nations of so-called classical antiquity, and to prove that we were not copyists " in that old iron time". I showed how the forms of our swords and shields were widely different from classic models in fact, as different as possible for objects answering the same purposes to be^I showed that we had an early language and a literature which, without any mixture of Koman taint, were things to be proud of ; and I entered an urgent protest against the system which, in our schools, forces upon us the study of an alien language and literature as guides to our own, with which they have no kinship save the remote relationship proved by Max Miiller to exist among all members of the Aryan family. The following Lectures tend to show that even in later times than those taken cognizance of in Older England, the Latin element, introduced by the Norman usurpation, did not mingle with the English elements of which we were composed ; and, in fact, instead of our becoming Norman, the Normans became English.
THIS work is printed from the MS. of a course of Lectures delivered at the British Museum on the same principle and much in the same way as those which appeared under the title of Older England, of which, indeed, it may be regarded as a continuation.
