History: Language: Insular Latin
Table of Contents

(This page is very much a work in progress…)
So, whilst all the raiders and traders might have been chatting away in Old English and Old Norse, scholarly types were writing away in Latin. We call it Insular Latin to differentiate it from Classical Latin (it was a second language for these monks and nuns and so all sorts of quirks and 'mistakes' crept in so it really is quite a different beast from what the Romans used)
