Matthew Dickerson was inspired by the fragment of an ancient story that comes from the 7th century. Known as the "Finnsburg Fragment," this poem echoes the retelling of the same event in the great early English epic, Beowulf. The Rood and the Torc begins after the devastating fight at Finnsburg. Kristinge is the hidden child of Finn and Hildeburh, sent south into France to be educated in a monastery. While there, he also becomes an accomplished bard. When Kristinge is called upon to claim his heritage, he must journey north into a hostile world of warrior clans and pagan priests. But is he to be a king, a bard, or a monk?

Includes a map, glossary, detailed character list, and historical notes.
