Riddles, Charms and Invocations
- The text of the Anglo-Saxon riddles
from the Exeter Book, with suggested solutions and Craig Williamson’s translations.
I own a copy of Williamson's book A Feast of Creatures: Anglo-Saxon Riddle
Songs; it has a fine
essay on riddles by way of introduction.
Carmina Gadelica, Gaelic folk poems from the Western Isles of Scotland,
collected by Alexander Carmichael;
one of the e-texts in the
Internet Sacred Text Archive. I own and treasure a copy of the English-only edition published by Floris Books.

Stories of Other Worlds
- The site for Alia Vox, the recording company of Hesperion XXI,
probably the finest early music ensemble in the world
