long time ago, stories were told in the form of epic poems. These
were very long poems that told a whole story about a person or an event.
One of the oldest surviving epic poem is that of Beowulf. The story
of the hero Beowulf was probably first told in the 6th century but was
not written down until two hundred years later. The story is more
than a thousand years old! Beowulf was a very brave man who did some
amazing things in his life. This is the story of his battle with
the terrible monster Grendel.
